    Entrees were very tasty and enjoyable. One of two appetizers, the brie, was quite lackluster and not worth it, the market salad was tasty. Our server was not the best, he couldn't remember to tell us the specials, and had minimal menu insights. While I recommend the restaurant for the food, the space was quite loud.

    Fabulous food, great service, but the outdoor seating needs improvement. There was a huge space in the middle of the area with no tables, and the two tops were crammed against the wall, so that if you were on the outside, your view was of your dining partner and a wall, which felt really boxed in.

    All was great especially the service. The one misstep was the Octopus with Potato Roti. The Potato isn't much of a contribution to the dish and isn't very tasty, and there really wasn't much Octopus. It is more a Roti dish with Octopus. Perhaps Latkes would be better with a greater amount of the Cephalapod.

    What a gem hidden in Princeton. The ingenuity displayed in the menu is what I would expect in a bigger city. It’s not a restaurant I could afford to go to on a weekly basis, but for a special meal it is should be a go-to spot. The food and service were wonderful.

    Wonderful creative food in a beautiful setting. We arrived later in the evening due to flight schedules, so ran into their post kitchen closing time. Only critique was we felt a bit rushed to leave. I understand the staff wants to be home, but we were seated while the kitchen was open...just would have liked feeling a bit more welcomed at the end of the meal. Overall; great experience.

    Server was amazing, attentive and knowledgeable. We went a little later and it went from more on the loud side to quieter outside as the crowd thinned. Steak was amazing, salmon was pretty good, and the wings are awesome. Nice selection of drinks as well. Definitely will be going again.
