Fodor's Review

This casual, mostly vegetarian, restaurant is a rare find, with an airy Mediterranean-style ground floor and a darker, candlelit upstairs. The always-innovative menu changes daily but usually consists of a soup, a couple of salads, baked vegetable dishes, and pastas—as well as meat and seafood specials. Favorites include green salad with sautéed mushrooms and Parmesan shavings; baked avocado, mushroom, and eggplant lasagna; pan-fried halloumi cheese with grilled cherry tomatoes; and salmon ravioli in a creamy dill sauce. There's Wi-Fi here.

Great food; Very smoky

I loved the menu. Great food diversty and quality. Seem the night I was there, every one was drawing on a cigarette and this just made for a very smoky environment.
