Friendly greeting at the door. Waitress warmly greeted us and took drink orders. Gave us a respectable amount of time to decide on meal choice.
Checked back on drinks. Food arrived in a timely manner. Waitress checked after a few minutes that food was satisfactory.
Did not feel rushed, server was polite and friendly. Have eaten there before and will definitely return again!

I love this place. The food is great and fresh and we get out of the City for a drive which I love. There does however, seem to be either inhouse disorganization or a shortness of staff. The staff was pleasant, but there was no one at the front to coordinate and my family who arrived early waited 25 minutes without anyone coming to the table. I like the relaxed feel of the place, but I believe they could work on their attentiveness.

Unfortunately a night ruined. Arrived at the restaurant at 6:45pm. Drinks arrived on time and same with the charcuterie board but took the “chef” over 2hrs to make a Thai bowl and a surf and turf. It was made clear to our waitress a few times that I am very allergic to mushrooms and my plate came out with mushrooms and my friends steak was blue rare. Plates were sent back and within 5mins we magically received hot plates but took them 2 hours to send in the first place. The owner came by and asked how our meal was and we were honest that we were disappointed. I’ve had fabulous meals here in the past but tonight wasn’t acceptable. His response was that maybe “this isn’t the right place for you” and RUDELY turned his back mouthing us off under his breath and walked away. Funny he had no problem taking our $150 for food that was very VERY average.
During this tough time you might want to treat your customers a bit better that still go out and SUPPORT your business, regardless if the meal with great or poor. I wasn’t looking for a free meal but the unprofessional attitude was uncalled for and we will never return.
