    Great service and the food was exceptionally well put together, also the manager took time out of his busy night to come and check on us several times during the night!

    The baked oysters appetizer is a great starter -- petite but tasty. The apple & potato bisque is the right consistency and full of flavor -- also large enough to be an entree. We had the fish and short rib entrees. The branzino was served with a crispy skin and cooked perfectly. The ribs were falling off the bone-tender and the serving size was plentiful.

    Very promising - we really enjoyed our pre-show dinner. Excellent food, friendly and gracious staff. A bit lower rating on the service not because of our server, but because of the wait between appetizer and entree. We were nearly late for a show just across at Jones Hall. So be sure to advise your server (as well as include on your reservation) that you are going to a show and what time you need to leave. I hope that will help while the kitchen works out it kinks!

    Great ambience and I love the brand. Tried out the new restaurant for lunch. If you don’t work Downtown, parking can be challenging. The food was good, but serving time is still a bit slow. (I’ll chalk that up to being newly opened). However, my soup came out after my main course. Will try it again once they are more well established.

    While we enjoyed the ambiance inside, we sat out on the patio. The environment was pleasant with the buzz of the city in the background. The cocktails and appetizers were flavorful and generous. Then came our meal, I had the lamb chops which were delicious. I can’t speak for the flavors of the rest of the food, but everyone was happy with their selections.
