Food was excellent, service was excellent. Would’ve been nice to have some bread or rolls provided while we waited and prices are a bit high but overall excellent

Crab dip & smoked chicken egg rolls were delicious as well as my shrimp & grits and my husband’s short ribs. Drink special was a great mix. Friendly service. Would definitely would go back when I’m in the area.

Great date night spot. My date liked it so much when we came here a couple of weeks ago, he asked to take me again. The food was good, our server Danny was nice, attentive, and professional. We'll be back!

Our party of six had a very nice evening. I got there first and was able to wait at our table for the rest of my party. Our waitress was friendly and checked on us often. I loved the ambiance - upscale without being stuffy. I will definitely go back.

Service was pretty lousy, the server was definitely not in a good mood and seemed to rush us. The menu looked good but the food did not taste or look as good as it sounded. Scallops were rubbery and tuna was chewy. My girlfriend also found a hair in her scallop risotto halfway through the meal. Definitely will not be returning. The best part of the meal was my beer

Excellant service provided by a very informative server and wait staff. Great drinks and especially good food. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for to have a good meal and be able talk with each other while not having to do it over loud music. Our server knew when to come to our table and was keenly aware that we were good friends catching up.

Food was bland. Not flavorful at all. Scallops and risotto should packed more flavor. How can you get shrimp and grits wrong? They did. Again no flavor. even with the minimal amounts of sausage in the dish, it was tasteless.

I guess technically it IS Columbia but it’s way out from downtown—30 minutes are least. Service was amazing-Sarah was great. Food was ok...not 30 minutes away good. Everyone was so thirsty when we got home ana woke up with swollen hands from all the salt. Lemon drop martinis were yum and the fresh bread also was great.

First time we have been here but it was a good experience. Lunch prices are great but the dinner menu is a little pricey. The food was good but the crab cake had too much breading and the chicken was over cooked because it was too thin. The steak was very good.

The bead maker was broken so they didn’t serve any bread to guests and instead of going out and getting some or giving their $1 baguette for free the just served nothing but an excuse. I had the short rib which was salty and barely hot. It tasted like the packaged hornet short rib. The other guest had the steak which was served barely warm. The 3rd guest ordered the fried seafood platter. Everything was greasy and over fried. You know how when the grease is old and your food comes out very dark and greasy? That’s what it looked like. The sweet potato fries were the best thing on that plate. She returned the food and ordered the steak which came out fresh, cooked properly and piping hot. The waitress did her best to overcome the challenges of the kitchen.
