It was a Monday evening and it was fully booked by 5:30 pm. We took a seat at the bar. Ambience is fun, and the restaurant is quaint. Bar was minimalist, but well stocked. Lisa’s Favorite, a tequila cocktail, was spectacular. Very nice selection of...More

great meal - should have gone there both nights while in Lenox. Duck was excellent. Our waitress poured us both a rather large glass of wine.

The "Provençal beef stew" (daube?) came in a watery tomato-y sauce with stringy pieces of beef. There was a lot of it. The accompanying Bardolino wine was not bad.

What more can be said? Excellent food, friendly atmosphere, and great service (Thanks, Lisa). All takes place under the watchful eyes of the owners, products of the Swiss Ecoles Hôtelières. It's casual dining with their expertise at work behind the scene.

On the recommendation of a local resident, we dined at this fabulous restaurant. Moderately priced, great atmosphere. The duck breastfeeding was superb and the grilled organic tofu was delightful. The molten chocolate cake with Gelato was to die for.

I expected this restaurant to be even better, based on what we had heard. They have a nice wine offering of three tastings, which is cool, and my Idaho trout was decent but nothing fabulous. Also, the squash it was served near was cool. Could...More

My husband and I had lunch here during the middle of a winter storm. It was nice and cozy. The food was great, the wine list fantastic. The staff was very friendly. It was worth the money and driving through snow.

They have a separate room often used for larger (5 or more) groups, but it is not private. There will be others seated there as well. It is used as a private space for larger groups, as many as 20.
