Awesome place to brunch, owner and his staff were amazing, we had a great time and will return!
Only one person waiting tables. The owner was constantly telling her what to do instead of helping!!!!
Amazing food, amazing service. One of the best brunch vibes I’ve experienced ever. Brussels sprouts are a must have!!!
Great service and food as always
This place is awesome!!! Im happy to go out of my way to go there!
And the blueberry basil boubon is ahhhh-mazing!!
Lafood was great!!! Lauren is an amazing service!
We just moved to Thomaston and decided to try this place out ! It was so good and we will definitely become regulars especially with outdoor seating when it gets nice out ! Everything was delicious and service was great !
The service was great, food was amazing, and the ambiance was perfect. Definitely recommend to friends and family and will be going back.
The menu selections are good and overall the food was good. The environment is borderline diner looking. The Bar is in the same small room as the restaurant and although I don’t usually mind bar noise, the 3-4 only people sitting at the bar were loud and swearing and it brought the whole vibe down. We were one of 3 tables seated in the whole restaurant but it still took over 20 minutes to get our first drink. I will not ever eat here again. The food was good so next time will probably just order grub hub to go.
Great place. Never disappoints. Great food great drinks
Mike was an EXCELLENT server, great attitude and personality. Reccomended dishes, just the right amount of attention. Really enjoyed the food, will definitely put on the list of places to go!
We had a good dining experience. not an exceptional one for the money. The food was good but didn't stand up to the pricing. Service was extremely slow but understand its a sign of the times.
Food is outstanding. I am reminded of Old World Italian in the sauces and dish preparation and presentation. I was concerned at the end of our meal for Covid safety. First of all the booths could have a shield above the backrest to separate diners at back to back tables. Second a floor to ceiling barrier of some sort should be erected between the bar and the dining area. Thirdly, they need to control the crowd in the bar to reasonable levels. When we went in there were two people at the bar by the finish of our meal the place was jam packed, shoulder to shoulder. I question the legality of packing so many into such a confined space, but question more the wisdom of being in that crowd since it seemed that masks were optional. A super spreader event in the making.
Despite the great food, we will not be returning due to safety concerns.
Food was good. A little pricey for not getting a salad with your meal or bread.
I would recommend this place for a quick bite for lunch or for dinner. The food is really good, the service is good as well and the ambiance is on point. I highly recommend the Linguini Carbonara, it was the best I have had. I enjoyed this place, and will definitely go back again.
Didn’t have computer working so didn’t have our reservation for brunch. Sat indoors and was still loud from DJ outside. Half the staff walking in and out with no mask, including owner, and seats were not 6 feet apart. Bar tending also not wearing mask while making drinks.
I’ve been reading the reviews since they opened and finally decided to try it out. I admit my expectations were high since they seem to be making it through the current dining restrictions. Was kind of disappointed as it was nothing special at all. They didn’t even offer a salad or bread with the meal. Probably will not return.
Great food and ambiance !! I would highly recommend :)
Very well prepared meal, prompt service We would go there again.
It’s not a good option for special occasion. Everything is average or a little under
Awesome!!!!! Overall a great place. Nice staff highly recommended
We made reservations and when we arrived we were told they were at max capacity and they weren’t letting anyone in. I told her we made reservations and she said that didn’t matter they weren’t letting anyone in. She was extremely rude. Didn’t even ask if we wanted to wait, just basically closed the door in our faces.
It was very good. Food was exceptional, and service was impeccable as well.
Very pleasantly surprised.
We had a very nice Father's Day lunch. Food was tasty and desserts were delicious
Zero complaints! Perfect!!!
