- Wine Tasting Dinner – April 23rd at 6:30pm
Came into the restaurant on a Wednesday night, was greeted and sat instantly, my waiter Augusto was excellent, came to the table and offered me some sample tastes of wines by the glass, I decided on the Pinot Noir. Felt like having something lighter and fruity. Augusto let me know of the specials for the evening I decided on the lamb – cooked medium rare. when it came out I ate it in less than 5 minutes it was delicious…
Loved this sweet little restaurant. The sweet hostess Morgan was adorable, helpful, and just plain cute. Her dad Eric was our waiter. Watching them interact brought a true family feel to the restaurant…
