It seems the menu changes frequently (if not daily), so I don't think it is posted. I think the prices are decent. I went first as part of a table of two, being fairly indulgent: apps,a few $7-$8 cocktails/glasses of wine each, main courses and desserts = $70. When I went with my boyfriend and daughter, we shared an appetizer platter, all got main courses, I think my boyfriend had a beer and I had a glass of wine, no dessert=$60.
I can't stop thinking about the olive tapenade. Served with a chunk of fresh butter, a handful of sea salt, and a few types of Madison Sourdough breads. mmm. There was also a pork tenderloin special the other night with a cider reduction and roasted peppers. It was hauntingly good.
I haven't noticed any issues with the staff; maybe a teeeeeny bit of the standard still-working-out-the-kinks first few weeks stuff but all of the servers/hosts/bartenders I've encountered have been friendly/welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful.
Also I think it is worth mentioning that my last visit was with a group of friends, one of whom has a severe allergy which prevented her from enjoying much of the menu. The chef, walking through the front room, overheard us talking about it and knelt down next to her at the table, chatted with her about the severity of her allergy and what she could and could not eat, asked her what she wanted based on the ingredients she saw on the menu, and then went back to the kitchen and prepared a plate carefully to her specifications. My friend was pleasantly surprised, especially because it was packed to the gills in there. I don't know that that's something that normally would happen (and she certainly wouldn't expect it) as typically chefs are way too busy and focused for special accommodations of that nature, but it made our night.
