This restaurant receives rave reviews I found the atmosphere and ambiance Stark. Granted you may not be here for that. However at these prices some softer lighting a carpeted floor would make a huge difference. Some sound deadening. The service staff was very good friendly...More

Nice menu, decent atmosphere, good service. Almost everything we had was very good with the exception of the pistachio crusted salmon. It was overcooked, bitter and lacked flavor. The blood orange sauce added nothing to the dish and the coconut rice had no flavor. Also,...More

This was our first visit to the Poached Pear. Everything was really good (butternut squash/sweet potato soup and key lime pie dessert were standouts). But what really impressed us is that they have made a conscious effort to keep the noise down. Dinner Saturday night...More

Casual, it is a nice place. I have seen jeans and tee shirt to nice slacks and collared shirt. Personally, slacks/khaki , collar shirt. Can't go wrong. Just give them a call, no posted dress code that I know of.

Appetizers and salads are between $10 and $16; main dishes are all in the $30s; dessert are $5 - 12. It's a BYOB, so you'll save there. The couple next to us ordered a few appetizers, no main dishes. I love that idea!
