    Our experience was great. It was on a Saturday night and not crowded at all, which is probably why we had such great service. The fried green tomato arugula salad was amazing. We both ordered steaks which were also amazing. The creamed corn succotash was the only thing that needs work. The corn was kinda hard and needed to either be mashed or cooked longer. The brussel sprouts, cocktails, wine, and dessert were all great! Our waitress was also amazing! Highly recommend!

    Food is wonderful. Waiter and servers were excellent. The lack of a fifth star on service has to do with, possibly the website, possibly the front desk. Although there was no distinction when I initially made the reservation, I wrote in the comments that we wanted an outdoor table. They told me I had requested an indoor table and the only area that was open then was for "parties." I have reserved previously and there was a place to indicate where you wanted to sit. This time there was no opportunity to do that, but I do expect them to read the notes.

    Excellent service and beautiful food & drinks! It is very noisy so if you wish a quiet restaurant, ask to be seated outside!

    My teenage son wanted to try a Michelin star restaurant and this one was perfect!!! Food was excellent, price was reasonable and service was outstanding. Portions are smaller a bit like tapas, which is great when traveling!! We will definitely be back
