    We are health conscious and very concerned about sourcing food products. We have ultimate confidence in Emmer&Rye as they have their own farm and are extremely knowledgeable and diligent in finding the best ingredients. And if only I had their culinary skills!!! Just totally inventive and delicious.

    Excellent food and service in a casual setting. They should have brought clean plates and flatware out for each course given the high level of service.

    Really fantastic experience, we got there a little earlier than our reservations and we're seated right away. The food was delicious and all the staff did a great job of telling the story of the restaurant and the meal. Sarah is a great server made fantastic suggestions and ensured a wonderful time. We will definitely be back.

    My 3 friends and I had a fantastic time. The experience was over the top. I have dined there many times but none of my friends had and they loved the service and food. Sarah was fantastic as usual. Everyone was so accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back.
