Special dinner to celebrate graduation. The server apologized for the wait in getting main meals out and when they arrived some were cold. The food is always delicious. All in all everyone enjoyed their meal.

Only complete was waitress was slow getting to us since she was taking phone orders. She apologized and gave good service. I don’t blame her. I blame the management.

None, I do apologize for the inconvenience at the start of your visit. I do wish this issue had been brought to my attention while you were dining. We have five new servers/wait assistant on staff at the moment due to previous staff graduating and moving on. This currently limits us to who is able to answer the phones. I will implement practices to prevent this in the future. Thank you, Destiny (GM).

The service was outstanding. The food was good, but the experience was better. There’s no other place like this in town. I anticipate that I’ll return.

I know this is considered the best restaurant in Tuscaloosa but the experience and food are less sophisticated than similarly priced restaurants in Birmingham where the staff is more thoroughly trained, the food does not come in giant heaping, and the ceilings are not acoustical tile. It was a pleasant enough experience but I think the prices are too high for what is being offered. One pays similar prices to Frank Stitt’s award winning restaurants in Birmingham

Quality is inconsistent. Filet was excellent one week, next week same steak had little flavor. Ambiance was good but music was too loud. Service was good.
