Good food. We had a mix of meat and cheese for 38 bucks. It was totally worthy instead of getting it individual, which it 8 buck for each. So it’s 6 item for the plate. 6*8 = 48, but, if you get la grand Board it’s only 38. Really deal. As far as cocktails goes, they have good drinks. The old fashioned was my favorite!! Come and check it out !!

I really liked this place. We started with some of the happy hour options: the charcuterie and cheese selection had good size portions enough for 2 (the 24 month old cheddar was outstanding) and I had a Sangiovese (that I had to try something lighter to start). For entree I had the duck and it was SUPERB! So tender but crispy... I think it is one of the best ducks I've had! I wanted a wine that would go better with the duck and the waiter brought a couple of recommendations that were very good. Something that I liked a lot also was the glasses and plates they use, and the presentation of the dishes is beautiful. The wine list is good, I noticed a couple that caught my attention and I mentioned the waiter that the next time (because I am planning to go back) I was going to have one of those, and he brought a sample of one of them... and it was absolutely delicious! All the above, the good and friendly service and the cozy but modern space (with a little of jazz and lounge music) definitely make me want to go back... soon!

Good customer service, a little pricy but they have a nice and cozy bar. It is an ideal place to go on a date. They also serve beer
