I dined here Monday evening with my Dad and had an excellent time. The food was fantastic, but our server stole the show with her gracious hospitality. I have eaten here a few times in the past and this experience with ensure that I will definitely be back.

Surprisingly, our first time here. Delicious cocktails to start. Our waitress suggested ordering two half bowls of pasta, which we did. Great way to get a taste of many different dishes. The Chocolate Olive Oil cake was a chocolate lovers delight!

My husband and I recently had dinner at no.246 since we were in Decatur for a funeral. We loved it and will return one day. Great food, wine, and service! I had the wood roasted chicken, and he had the porchetta. The food was excellent. It was a little noisy, but we enjoyed the ambiance...very friendly, relaxing but also upbeat.

The Food & Service are consistently excellent – it's a great place for practically any occasion.

Not a great place for your typical brunch especially if One has food allergies. They only offer one salad for a dairy free choice minus the cheese and creamy dressing. No non- dairy creamer for coffee. They said they haven’t chosen the right vendor for their dairy-free creamers. Go to publix and buy almond milk. You just lost 2 customers for the price of using publix as your vendor. I’m not writing againsy going to this restaurant. Just make sure you only choose this restaurant if all of your friends have no food allergies.

Overall food was okay. We tried the meatball (only thing we loved), the fried risotto, the steak, and the chicken Marsala. We found everything to be too salty. The steak portions were far too small for what we paid. There were too many flavors going on with all the cheese and herbs and oil and salt added on top of the food. And even the dessert we were dissapointed with. The chocolate cake was dry. Good service, and good atmosphere, but we found the food to be dossapointing for $140.

Food was terrible. It was expensive, which makes it worse, but it would have been terrible food at any price. Of the five of us eating, only one of us could somewhat enjoy their meal, and all of us had to go eat elsewhere afterwards.
