There is adequate parking for this small restaurant. It looks like a little house off the beaten path. They are adhering to CDC Covid suggestions and are at 50% capacity. Waitress Connie was super friendly and helpful. We were a party of 4 women tonight and everyone loved their meal. The appetizers were amazing. Each entrée was unique and different, and the portions were more than adequate.  We were celebrating a birthday and I informed restaurant before arrival and it was handled beautifully. Chocolate waffle is a must. Their house cocktails are so unusual and extremely tasty.

We arrived at the restaurant and there was adequate parking.  When we made the reservation, we made it for outdoors, but attempted to change to indoors on arrival.  Due to it being New Year’s Eve, we were not able to move inside which is understandable. The outdoor dining area was nice, but I could sense that the ambiance inside was a selling point.  We ordered our drinks which came in a timely manner. The craft cocktail was very good. I personally think that all restaurants that serve liquor should include craft cocktails, as they’ve become another course in a meal.  We ordered appetizers and waited some time for their arrival.  When they arrived, they were very good and flavorful.  We then ordered our entrees prior to finishing the appetizers.  The entrees took about 30 minutes to arrive.  We were fine with that, but others may have grown impatient.  When I went to the restroom, I saw that the kitchen is very small so this is likely the reason for the delay.  The entrees were all flavorful and cooked well.  I, of course, tried some of every plate that was ordered.  We then decided to also indulge in desserts.  The banana cream pie was not what was expected.  It really wasn’t a cream pie at all and the ginger flavor was strong.  I really like ginger so I enjoyed the pie, however others may not like that.  The chocolate waffles were very good.  I can see that they put a lot of effort into the desserts at this restaurant.  I could see this as a nice place to go and enjoy a craft cocktail, burger and dessert. Of note, I almost ordered the burger which sounded very good.  I decided not to because of the show.  In retrospect, this would probably have been the best decision.  If I lived in Boynton, I could see myself returning.

Great place to bring your friends that are vegan and gluten free. They use local produce. Several dishes were appropriate for the type of restaurant. However the menu is somewhat limited. We could not experience the whole ambiance – as it wasn’t very crowded. Part of the experiencing a restaurant is the energy the room has.
