So glad we tried this place - the only time available for a reservation was 9:45 pm which was later than we planned to eat. But, so worth the wait! The food was amazing! A simple dish like grilled green beans was made so deliciously, I wanted to savor every bite! The short ribs made to perfection - crispy on the outside with all the flavor and tenderness sealed in topped with an amazing relish. Lamb skewers were tender and delish. Goat empanadas absolutely delicious! The meal was topped off with a carmel corn and malt ball dessert - yum! The presentation of each dish was also wonderful. Staff were great! We were sat at the chef's table, and had a great experience - Trevor our waiter was wonderful - so helpful and patient (we couldn't decide what to try, all the dishes sounded and looked SO good). He, the chef staff and other wait staff made our visit wonderful! Plates are meant to be shared, so it's easy to spend a bit as you try several dishes, even though each dish is reasonably priced. It's about quality not quantity - and so worth it! More

Another enjoyable evening at one of our favorite restaurants! Not only is the food more than delicious, the owner and staff make you feel like family! I asked if the chef could make a variation of a veal dish that was not on the menu (Veal Francese) and not only did he make the dish, but it was possibly the best I've ever had! The atmosphere is relaxing, never rushed. And al fresco dining is available. Would highly recommend for date night, special occasion, girls night, or just in the mood for a relaxing great meal! More

I had been to City Mouse a few months ago for brunch with a group and really loved the food and ambiance. I had a girl friend in town and made reservations last minute for a Friday early dinner. City Mouse was very accommodating with my indecisiveness of time slots, so I was grateful. The service was great, and food was awesome. My friend kept commenting on how yummy the food and service was. After she left, I went inside to the bar and had a drink. Loved the bar atmosphere; it was lively and had picked up so much since our arrival at 5:30. More
