This was a place with a wonderful wine list and a weekly menu. The meals have a chef's touch and ar e accompanied by a wine recommendation, which I would follow. He knows what he's doing. Yet with the fancy wine list and the delicious menu, you are served by friendly servers (owners?) wearing shorts. We enjoyed one wine so much we had asked the server for more information. He turned the question to a gentleman sitting nearby. He was the owner of Madrona Winery. Very helpful and friendly. It was wonderful to get delicious flavorful food but in an unpretentious atmosphere.
