Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.
We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.
Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.
They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.
I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!!
And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
