Great place to host our relative's wedding! the stained glass windows and other preserved parts of the former church architecture were really great. The food was stellar as well.

An amazing place. In a converted church just beautiful. We had the Maple Glazed Rack of Elk, it was terrific. Impressive list of cheeses and charcuterie as well. Highly recommended.

I recommend reservations for sure, especially on the weekend. If you can't get them, it's worth a visit to see the place and have drinks and apps at the bar. Beautiful!
