Yep. We know. We're on to the fact that a lot of restaurants use the word "craft" to describe things.

Craft beer. Craft wine. Even craft pickles.

But our idea is different and maybe a little craftier. We take the notion of craft a step further. We're not just about carefully curated and finessed food and drinks, although to be clear, we definitely have that.

Crafted is just how we view everything.

It's our entire approach and idea behind our restaurant. To be a continual work in progress. From our menu to our venue. We love the refinement process, to perpetually morph into exactly what the community needs and wants and as it meets together and eats together.

                                                            Went here for a first date. Staff forgot to take our order and finally came over 30 minutes later after multiple attempts to get their attention. The wings and duck fat fries were delicious! Did not like the carrots. The drinks are phenomenal.

                                                            This was our first visit to the restaurant and it went very well! Anthony was our server and did a phenomenal job staying on top of our table, sharing insight about the menu and wine list, and really anything else we asked him. He has a fantastic personality and a strong attention to detail. The food was delicious and well executed. My only critique would be on ambience and feel it could be lighted to suit evening dining. They also have an outside patio which looks lovely!

                                                            Drinks were, while pricey, very delish. However, I would not ever order any of the items again that we ordered. Maybe they are just finding their way. The restaurant is beautiful, comfy, and the service was fantastic.

                                                            Trish (Patricia W) was our server and she was amazing! She was very friendly, engaging and assisted us with drink/menu suggestions! She was attentive and made us feel welcome. The atmosphere was great and the restaurant was very clean! The food was good/mediocre. We really liked the avocado caesar. The pesto chicken sandwich was good and flavorful, but the bread was so hard it was almost difficult to eat the sandwich. I would say the margherita flatbread wasn't our favorite because the cherry tomatoes seem to be added after it was cooked and it was sort of bland. Overall, I would eat here again and just try other menu options!

                                                            It was GNO, met up with the ladies and enjoyed a evening with lovely cocktails and delicious food. Love the atmosphere! We sat outside and enjoyed the live music on Friday nights.

                                                            Great meal the two times I have gone. I had some amazing sandwiches the first time and brought others back so this time we had the shared brisket. Everything was delicious but I really really hope they also bring back the sandwiches as they were not on the menu this time. Literally enjoyed every single thing I ate. Love the space and really want them to work out!

                                                            They are just getting started so I understand but even so the service was incredibly slow. 45 minutes to get an appetizer.

                                                            We put our order in pretty fast. And we didn’t receive our drinks or food AT ALL and we waited for a good 40-45 minutes. We left because we were just sitting there drinking water waiting and waiting and nothing came.
