I've eaten here many times and it's always high quality dining; nice atmosphere; excellent service. Quiet dining room for conversation. We usually order the "bar menu" which is half the price of the regular dinner menu. Delicious appetizers; excellent chef.

They provided us a very fine celebrative dinner. The chicken breast was excellent. The petite filet was perfectly cooked. The snapper was also wonderful. The calamari may be the moistest and most tender I have ever had. It has an extensive wine list.

An excellent, but pricey, quiet restaurant on the east side of Bloomington with friendly staff and owner. Great selections of wines. Sometimes hosts dinners with wine pairings. A truly fine choice for a quiet, intimate evening out.

It's always interesting to see how you will be greeted when you go to a restaurant (anywhere in the world) but especially one that claims to care about the quality of its food. Truffles didn't start well! How hard is it to smile and say...More
