Generally underwhelmed by my experience. Appetizers were solid but nothing outstanding. My entree, house made pappardelle, was overcooked. The sauce was very thin and lacked much flavor, as did the ramp pesto. The braised lamb that came with the dish was average, but there was almost too much of it. As if to make up for the other lacking components. The service was decent but again, nothing memorable. In a town with such a vibrant, flourishing food scene, this restaurant gets lost in the mix in pretty much every aspect. Too many better options in this city.

Upscale place, the food was delicious and beautifully presented. As much as I did like it and might return, I'm giving it four stars. The New York-priced drinks (I don't mind paying for a crafted drink, but their cost made getting a nice local beer a more sensible option for me) and a hostess that wasn't sure if she wanted us there were a little disappointing. We were asked if we had reservations as they were expecting a large group; we thought that odd as there were only 3 other patrons in the whole place and it was already around 7:30pm on a Sunday (P.S. - no "group" ever came the whole time we were there). Maybe we weren't dressed up enough any event, despite those two things, our server was fantastic and it was a very nice, comfortable place.

Thank you to The Marketplace for fantastic meal and 5 star treatment/food. We came with a medium size group for a business meal and were accommodated better than anywhere else in town. Amazing appetizers (charcuterie board out of this world good), for dinner we shared a bit of everything and was great!! Thank you to chef William and the staff. Can't wait to return!
