The best restaurant around. The food and service are consistently excellent. My mouth is watering right now, thinking of the perfectly cooked medium rare New York Strip. Always busy because those of us that live here keep coming back!

If you are a “liver and onions” person and there are not many of us, this is the place to go. I can cut say enough about it! And wife’s sword fish was outstanding as well. Short ride from Albany- I’ll be back!

Delicious food in a charming old house. The highlight was the sardines appetizer - reminded us of Barcelona. We decided to eat all appetizers and every bite was delicious. Next time have to go back and try some of the entrees as well.

Started with cauliflower soup and grilled octopus which were both great. Then had the endive truffle salad. I had the calf liver and my husband had the duck. Very generous portions and unfortunately we had no room for dessert. Highly recommended dining there if you're...More
