We ordered the Penne Pasta, which had no taste. The Salmon was not fresh and not seasoned well, the vegetables on the side were slightly drizzled with a spicy sauce, but barely edible. The polenta was served in various clumps as it were scraped from the bottom of a pot, it was simply polenta barely boiled in only water, no taste at all. The cheese curds were great, and the wings ((Buffalo)) were swimming in sauce, and not really tasty.

The place is charming, and our Server was so sweet and tried very hard to take care of us. We won’t return except for drinks if we have to. So bummed. We were excite for a new place to gather in our beloved CWE.

We went for Sunday brunch and the food and cocktails were incredible! This restaurant did not disappoint. The wait staff was wonderful, although drinks did seem to take a long time from ordering to actually arrive at the table.

Seriously understaffed for prime brunch hours. Saw a dish under the warmers for at least 20 minutes. Waffle was good, husband not impressed with biscuits and gravy. Mini monkey bread was dry. First time there, not sure we'll go back.

WE TOOK OUR FRINED OUT FOR A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND IT WORST SERVICE/EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD! APPETIZER CAME OUT WITH MEAL,9NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL) MY HUSBANDS FOOD WAS COLD AND NOT VERY GOOD- AND WE WERE UNBALE TO TELL ANYONE BECAUSE THE SERVER NEVER CAME TO THE TABLE TO CHECK ON US. WE LITERALLY HAD TO GET UP TWICE TO ASK FOR OUR BILL- WHICH WAS OVER $150, NOT BAD FOR 4 PEOPLE AND I CERTAINLY DO NOT MIND PAYING FOR A GOOD MEAL IN A GOOD RESTAURANT.

This experience was so-so. The noise, at first, was too annoying even though we were NOT sitting in the "sports bar" area. The service was good and attentive, however the food was mediocre and, given the many options in the Central West End, we are unlikely to recommend or return.

It was especially disturbing that I asked to have my parking stub validated, was told it was unnecessary and that I would not be charged, but then the machine in the garage demanded 3-bucks! Not a huge amount, but an aggravation that should not have happened.

After perusing the menu we decided on 2 dishes that included polenta. Our waitress informed us that those dishes weren't available as the restaurant was out of polenta. I asked if we could substitute a vegetable or mashed potatoes for the polenta and she told us it wasn't an option. Disappointed we decided on another dish, not one that interested either of us, and were then informed that the polenta had become available and our original choices could be ordered. I find the drink prices a bit high, although the food is outstanding. If it had not been Valentine's Day and we had ordered oysters; I believe we would have left the restaurant after being told that our dinner choices weren't available.

The food selection is amazing. We were really excited to try it out! The service was quite slow including the initial drinks and food and it seemed like a couple of the dishes had been sitting for a bit. The pork steak had tough edges. Also, the beignets were overdone.

I think if these things were fixed it would be awesome. Definitely would come again.

This was overall disappointing. We were there early in the evening and the place was not busy. Bar-like atmosphere with the usual TVs. Beer selections were good and our server was great at giving recommendations. They have only the lousy O'Douls if you want NA, which is surprising given their other broad beer selection, when so many breweries, including some local, make great NA beers.

We order catfish and fries, shrimp cocktail and crawfish ravioli. The pimento cheese dip that arrived with the ravioli had been sitting long enough that a skim had formed on the top of the cheese, which then carried over into the ravioli themselves, which despite being slightly overbrown, were luke warm at best in the center. The shrimp cocktail sauce was good, with a nice kick, but the shrimp had clearly not just been shelled, they too had a bit of a rubbery edging as if refrigerated and pre-prepared. The catfish breading was a delicious flavor and the fries were the best part of the meal, but again all was lukewarm. I would have returned it had we not been trying to make a movie time. GIven the family of restaurants of which this is a member, I found the whole thing disappointing and expensive for the experience. Server, think her name was Ali, was stellar.

With all the restaurants in this neighborhood, I'd take a pass.

When we walked in the hostess told us we don’t take reservations, I don’t know why open table does this. Our server was great, but the menu was bar food at higher prices. Three dinners, three ice teas, and one desert not worth $74. Two were sandwiches and one jambalaya with a tea pot with the liquid, not a rue.
