We ate there for dinner last night. We arrived fairly early, by 7 p.m. and there were two larger tables and one other couple. By the time we left, the small-ish space was nearly full, so i'd recommend reservations if you're going on a busier night or later than 7:30.

The menu had a few salads, lots of 'small plates', five entrees, and a dessert menu. We opted for four small plates (ranging in price from $8 to $10-ish, but some - Duck - were as high as $12), a dessert and a ($30) bottle of wine, totaling up just under $74 before tip. IMO, $44 for 4 plates and a dessert wasn't bad at all for the quality of food, and we left satisfied - not quite in a food coma, but certainly not hungry. It was actually quite perfect for what we were in the mood for, and the service was great.

Overall the food was very good, no complaints. The pork tenderloin was the favorite dish for both of us, on top of sweet potato puree and a savory brown sauce garnished with caramelized apricots or something similar (definitely apricots, i can't remember if they were actually caramelized, but they were yummy!)...

I can't really remember the prices of the entrees since we decided pretty quickly that we wanted to go for small plates, but we'll likely return after the new year..
