This was my first time here and I have mixed reviews on my experience. My group was here for NYE with an early evening reservation. Upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. It's on the smaller side but has an elegant, quaint feel that's warm. The initial staff was very nice and we needed to wait at the bar for our table. The bar is on the smaller side but in scale for the restaurant. The drink menu was solid with several unique items. We quickly realized that whomever handled the reservations was not the best person to do so. The bar only had one person and was so overrun that the manager had to step in to help. The bartender did come over to let us know she was a bit behind with the crowd but would be with us as fast as possible. She made sure to let us know we weren't forgotten. 50 mins later, we were taken to our table. The hostess had issues with table management and seated parties who had later reservations instead of the earlier ones still waiting. It turned into a bit of an issue. Once we were seated, the experience did improve a bit. Our server was very nice and on top of everything. We were a little disappointed that there were several items no longer available on the menu though, especially when we had an early reservation timeslot. Once our order was taken, the kitchen flew through with our order. Everything was just as ordered, cooked perfectly and very good. The menu is straightforward farm to table and handled very well. We did decide on dessert, again unfortunately, the thing we wanted most wasn't available. We decided on the white chocolate cheesecake. It was one of the better ones I've had. Overall, the food would bring me back but I would hesitate to go on nights that would be busier.
