    Very good food and service. Only problem was the noise level, but I’m old. I especially liked a grilled cabbage appetizer.

    Very nice restaurant in a great location. The menu is limited to a few entrees, but was wonderfully tasty. The atmosphere is somewhat noisy due to the ascetics of an open forum.

    Enjoyable as always. Noise level was excessive. The trout would have been improved with less sauce and the octopus was overpriced for what you got. Chocolate caramel tart was delicious.

    This was our first time visiting and we brought family from out of state. Definitely a winner! The atmosphere is modern and stylish, but not pretentious. The food is outstanding! We had a member of our party with special dietary needs (strict gluten free) and the kitchen was happily able to accommodate. Everything was fresh with options to suit most tastes and preferences. Plenty of parking available as well. Will absolutely be back.

    I absolutely loved the birthday card and glasses of champagne upon arrival! My experience was personalized and made me feel welcomed. The food was excellent, and we tried multiple dishes. My favorite dish was the rainbow trout. The bartender/mixologist shared his perspective on a newish drink I saw on TikTok lol. Really loved the restaurant, and I’ll be back for sure.

    We were just visiting Richmond for the weekend, and a local friend recommended this place as top notch - they were so right! And this is one of those restaurants where the experience is best eating at the bar. We had an excellent bartender/waiter who made recommendations for us - one of which was the excellent eggplant appetizer, so amazingly different. The wine was excellent too, as well as the entrees. The atmosphere was lively (it can get loud in there) and sitting at the bar allowed us to watch the magical mixologist do his work! One note: the trout came with a cream-type sauce on top that was not listed on the menu, so for lactose-intolerant people you need to be careful. We did give feedback about that to our waiter.

    Servers were extremely nice and timely when checking on you. Food and cocktails a tad overpriced but of great quality. I had the pork chop for dinner which was good, but the best part about it was the bell pepper sauce; I could have eaten a whole bowl of that on its own. My boyfriend had the duck and it was well cooked; his first time having duck and he liked it. The focaccia bread was nice and fluffy, though it was lightly toasted on the grill which added a slight bitter taste that I was not always fond of. However, the fonduta you dipped the bread in made up for the bitterness of the bread. Ambience was nice. Occasionally the music got a little loud, so I had to lean in to hear my boyfriend or him/I had to repeat ourselves a few times - not a huge deal; done that at quite a few restaurants before. Overall, good restaurant with good food and service. Would come back again and recommend to friends.

    We went here for our wedding anniversary, and it was a great choice. They even put a little anniversary card on the table! The appetizers we ordered were good (not breathtaking, but good). The entrees and desserts, though, we’re truly excellent. The bolognese and swordfish were high points, and the chocolate tart is something I’ll be telling people about. All in all, a really great meal at a pretty fantastic price. Save room for dessert!

    Really good food with lots of good choices. Only complaint was that the service, while very professional and friendly, was a little slow. We waited forever for our coffees after dinner, and by the time thy came they were cold. We didn't send them back b/c by that time we were really ready to go home.

    Great date night- Katrina was wonderful and we really enjoyed the Eggplant appetizer, unique and full of flavor. We would ask for a little less sauce on the main dishes. Trout and Ribeye definitely would shine with the lovely preparation and presentation.
