Description: Food Dance is committed to building a thriving and sustainable local food system. We support artisans who practice craft food processes that have been around for generations-growing, raising, preserving, curing, aging, pickling, butchering and more. For Food Dance, it's about the connection with the people and places their food comes from-authentic people and authentic food that's true to its source. Serving breakfast, lunch or dinner-guests are served the freshest menu items in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. We offer private dining space for celebrations or larger groups as well as catering and delivery. We host cooking classes and special dinners throughout the year - aimed to introduce guests to new elements of the culinary and agricultural worlds. Our on-site market offers amazing ingredients sourced from their family of purveyors-from sustainable, humanely raised meats, sausages and artisan cheeses to fresh baked bread, pastries and savory baked goods.

FIrst visit for ua out of towners.

Four of us enjoyed the meat and cheese appetizer plate for starters. Well prepared and executed.

I had the Sesame Ginger Salmon, since this was billed as wild caught and fresh, not frozen, I could not resist. This dish was well prepared and nicely presented. The dish tasted fine, although a little to sweet for my palate. I suspect the salmon was the low-end pink salmon and not a higher quality salmons, but who is complaining for $25 in the Midwest. We are not on the upper West coast by any means.

Another in our party had the fish feature (Cod). The dish was presented nicely, but the hidden bottom was burned with the taste throughout the lower half of the dish. Unfortunately, we were served slowly and by the time we received the main course, we had little time to eat. There was correspondingly, no time to allow the wait staff to do anything about the very disappointing dish. This preparation should be unacceptable in this caliber of a restaurant.

Overall, we would not go back if we are in the area again as a result of the Cod dish.

Loved the menu-a great combination of unique and classic. Drink menu was fantastic as well. Loved the locally sourced menu items! Casual but nice enough for a special occasion too.

We ate here two days for lunch and one night for dinner. Charming venue, really good, fresh farm to table menu, and a nice adjacent "to go" cafe for lunch items. Definitely a go to place.
