Best overall restaurant in Miami Valley

I am a couple of weeks late with this post. Sorry, but I have been really busy. Anyways the best overall value in the Miami Valley (Dayton, Ohio and surrounding suburbs)is the Winds Cafe.

The Winds Cafe is a fine/casual dining experience. The Winds is located about 20-25 minutes east of Dayton in Yellow Springs.

The last dining experience was both good and bad. I was there with a group of people. Our server was there, but by her attitude did not want to be. Don't worry, I usually have good service, but what can you do.

They start you off with a basket of different breads accompanied with butter. This is better than the usual forcaccia or ciabatta.

I always start off with the black bean soup. It is so good that I get a bowl, but cup sizes are available.

For dinner this night I got the swordfish. The swordfish was wonderful. For dessert I had the chocolate cake which was awesome.

Sorry this was not so detailed, but it h been 3 weeks since I was there. I will tell you that my last two experiences were better than any I had at restaurants in Dayton (Paccia, Cafe Boulevard, or John Henry's r.i.p.).
