I can't imagine there are many places where you can get a meal and service of this caliber for $89. I asked the waiter (who grew up in the next town over from me) why their price point seemed low. He explained "We're not trying to be a 2 or 3 Michelin star place. We're trying to be a neighborhood restaurant that people feel comfortable returning to." I love a restaurant that knows who they are. And this one nails it.
The food was excellent. Quality ingredients and very well prepared. Seasoning was a bit off here and there but overall, everything was tasty and enjoyable. They even gifted me an additional appetizer - the scallop crudo. If I lived here, I would return regularly.
Service was outstanding - probably a 2-star level. Engaged and friendly, formal and attentive. Far surpassed my expectations. And the physical space has a terrific feel with dark (but warm) tones, high-back leather seating and a bright and inviting bar area.
If you're in the area, I highly recommend. It's easy, accessible, inexpensive for what you get and a very enjoyable experience.
