2941 Restaurant Review

Soaring ceilings, a woodsy lakeside location, and a koi pond make this one of the most striking dining rooms in the area. The playful cooking continually surprises, with plates like short rib–spiked fondue and scallops with lentils, free-range chicken, a pumpkin baked Alaska crowned by candied cranberries, and little gifts from the kitchen like rainbow-hue house-made cotton candy. It's a family affair, too. The chef's father makes the artisanal breads that run from rosemary olive to cherry almond. You can order à la carte or splurge on one of the tasting menus. Those seeking a thriftier experience can head to the bar, where an abridged menu is offered.

    2941 Restaurant Review

    Consistently excellent food and service, with creative combinations of flavors and ingredients. Intense drops of concentrated basil sauce on the gazpacho added a beautiful and flavorful zing to the already-tasty soup. Seafood is cooked to perfection and to order, and is nicely seasoned without overpowering the main flavors of the dish. The professional-yet-pleasant waitstaff seem to enjoy working there, answering questions about the dishes, and ensuring you're taken care of. Have been here about 5 times so far, and have had a wonderful dining experience each time.
