Minutes from my house yet I'd not been there before. It was top notch. I was wrong to assume it was just a neighborhood place. It's as good as any of spots in more trendy locations. We'll be back.

We had a fantastic experience. The duck on duck was lick the plate clean delicious. The pork was fantastic and can certainly feed a hungry person. I love the attention to detail, the beauty of everything served, impeccable service and consistent fantastic food. Every bite hits creates an explosion of flavors in your mouth...

Very limited although interesting menu but everything is a bit oversauced. Steak came drowning in a sauce when the server did not mention that. The other dish also was over sauced as were the appetizer and salad. These dressings and sauces were good, but a much lighter touch is needed. Less is more. I think they are going for elegant but assume Hoosiers want lots of goo. (We are both thin, too, so I don’t think they assumed we wanted rich food.) Every dish except the cold salad was brought to us by different staff, each holding the dishes with a protective towel, warning us the plates were very hot. They were. Made us wonder how long our dishes sat under the heaters before they were served. Stil, food was cooked and presented well aside from drowning each dish. Wine list— only three or four red wine selections by the glass. This place is not consistent but I have had a good meal or two there. Many other better and great choices in Indy, but in Nora area this probably is the best, excluding lovely Thai and other international restaurants in area.
