    We were lucky enough to have Angie as a server so we started the evening on a high note. Our cocktails were excellent and the calamari appetizer was tender and delicious. I decided on 2 apps for dinner and the cauliflower melted in my mouth. The 2 sauces were amazing; especially the spicy one. I also had the escargot and was rewarded with hot melty blue cheese spiked butter and little baguette slices to sop up the yummy butter. And hubby loved the sea bass and couldn’t stop talking about the creative side dishes. He paired his entree with a white wine tasting and liked one of the wines enough to get an extra glass. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better we had the courage to order dessert and were in heaven with gingerbread crème brûlée. So to say we enjoyed our meal is an understatement. We can’t wait to stop by again on our way to Utah from Denver. Bravo!

    Hi, so food is good, drink was missing ingredient and took at least 20 minutes to get them. Was seated right next to kitchen door that was interesting at a upper scale restaurant. Just my thoughts.

    I really love this restaurant. The ambiance is lovely and the staff is amazing. The hostess greeted us with warmth and a big smile which made us feel very welcome. Or waiter was extremely attentive,kind and extremely knowledgeable. The cocktails were unusual creative and delicious. But I have to say the calamari and cauliflower appetizers were subpar. The calamari bites were tiny and very thinly sliced, so when they breaded and fried it all I tasted was the salt,oil and breading... very little flavor from the calamari itself. And the cauliflower was either deep fried or sauteed too long and just had that fried taste which overpowered the cauliflower taste. I will still come back and try other dishes but I did want to comment on these two as I believe there can be some significant improvement. This restaurant has so much else to offer, I believe most people should try it :-)

    There were 4 in our party, and we had made reservations. Remember if you make reservations and you don't notify 626 you aren't coming, you will be charge $50 per person for not showing up. If I make a reservation with a restaurant, I am going to show up. And if for some reason I can't make it I will notify them. Anyway, I ordered the Sea Bass, others order the tenderloin, and hamburgers. The two that ordered the hamburgers said they have never eaten a better one anywhere. All our meals were very delicious. And our waiter was top notch.

    My wife and I chose to have dinner at the bar, and it did not disappoint! The cocktails were outstanding, as was our informative bartender. For an appetizer, we ordered the tempura cauliflower - a must have! This was followed by the Chilean Sea Bass - literally OMG - and the Apple Wood smoked duck salad - also delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

    We have been going here for 15 years for our anniversary. Having our names on the menus and sparklers for the deserts are nice touches. We have also enjoyed the addition of plant based options over the years. Food combinations were divine.

    Food was great but a bit pricy for the portions. Don't expect to take home any leftovers, not just because of the portions, but because the food is absolutely delicious. I went with a girlfriend, and we both loved it, but I'll leave my husband home when I come back. He'd like the food, but would not be full after the meal.

    Great gluten free menu with options. The crispy calamari appetizer is to die for when you have to be gluten free. The wine tasting menu is always changing and interesting along with the regular wine list. A must restaurant to try in Grand Junction.
