    I have eaten there several times now, both for brunch and for dinner, and the food and atmosphere are great. Very tasty food, both appetizers and main dishes. The waiters and waitresses are friendly, altogether a nice experience.

  2. I stopped in for a few cocktails and the bar is a great hang! Food looks great, too, I fully expect to scope it out this coming week.

  3. Happy to report it’s a very nice addition to the neighborhood! We went tonight, since I kept seeing their little sign along Route 9. It’s a little hard to find if you don’t know what you’re looking for (Mapquest it and they’ll toss you next to SingSing prison!). But go over the railroad tracks, on the west side, and it’s tucked there amid the boat/yaght clubs.

    Out comes a fresh bakes loaft of bread with a fine crust and good taste. I had the following: clam chowder – a generous sized bowl, good clam ratio, a touch of bacon flavor, and very yummy cream base. A “small” Caesar – fresh romaine, and a bright lemony dressing (the way I like it). Would like a smidge more parmesan next time on it.

    Spouse had harvest salad (arugula, apples, walnuts, etc.) – they were nice enough to make up a half order, rather than the full dinner salad. He had a fantastic burger on ciabatta roll. Fries were rail road style, which we don’t like so much, but well done.

    He had a marguertita, fresh made (no mixer!) and I had an old fashioned. Had to go ask the bartender what normally goes in it… he completely forgot the cherries and the oranges… looked it up on his IPhone, which was pretty funny, and made me another one. Dessert was not great (chocolate crepes – well, a cold crepe cut into two pieces – filled with chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce underneath). Mousse was too heavy for my taste, more like ganache, and crepe was not extraordinary. Server said the best dessert is the oreo cheesecake, but we’d had cheesecake from Junior’s in Brooklyn 2 days before and didn’t want to spoil the memory.

    Other parts of the menu look very appealing, too – pastas, steak, chicken, fish, etc. We’ll definitely go back! Staff was attentive and friendly – bathroom was also quite charming! Do go check them out – keep them open! (They are open for lunch/dinner, and Sunday brunch – looked at brunch menu – has usual french toast, eggs various ways, etc.)

  4. My wife and I ate there and were very impressed. The specials actually had prices next to them, the fried calamari was excellent. The wine choices were very reasonable. We had a bottle of Red, prices varied from $18 to $21 for the 4 bottle selection. Both of our entrees were excellent. We would definetely recommend this resaturant.

  5. I went there twice this week, but I was disappointed the second time. The same waitress was very forgetful and took us a while to get our drinks. It was not busy as it was a Tuesday nite. Then, my order was incorrect, and the waitress did go an request the order to chef. However, they gave me a totally different wrap. I advised the waitress, who stated she will speak to the chef, but they never got back to me. I ended up with a horrible stomach ache. I was really hoping to find a great place near the water. You are next to the water, but you are in front of parking lot, so it was a bit dissappointing.
