    The Bitches say: A-. Bravo, Brabo. A great place to celebrate an occasion or catch up with parents in town. The upscale, but not stuffy space is home to some of the most comfortable chairs. Read more

    This is the more expensive dining room, where they also have the Brasserie (bar or a communal table) to order a la carte or just have drinks. The Tasting Room next door is a more affordable option.

    Both food and service are superb. Excellent crafted wine menu. The food presentation is very well accomplished. Certainly worth visiting on a special night.

    Restaurant and bar are two separate venues, make sure to check which one you go into as the menus arent the same, great food though! Mussles are great!

    Agnolotti with lemon and ricotta was amazing. Be sure to get the ribeye medium rare as well

    Ask for the foie gras appetizer and get the sommelier to suggest an accompanying wine!

    The lemon poppy seed waffle dessert is to die for - I have a sweet tooth and this satisfies without being overly heavy.

    Mussles as an appitizer for the table. Worth it. Probably 30 plus pom frites. A meal in itself.
