                                                        The ambience was quaint. You have a choice of high top tables that are designed to fit two, sit down tables which can be put together, or a couch section. The last section would be wonderful for meeting with friends for appetizers and drinks. While the menu was not deep in choices, the choices were very good. We started with a charcuterie board that was ample and tasty. The molasses that they had was divine. The bartender made us some wonderful cocktails and we had a good bottle of wine. For dinner, my wife had the salmon which was very good. My son and I had the shrimp and grits. I wish it were a little more spicy, or even had some more black pepper. However the Au jus in which the dish was presented made up for a lot of that. All in all, we will return sometime in the near future. Our waiter was wonderful. He was funny and made the night enjoyable. A band, two pieces, struck up later. The area is small, so it did make it a little bit more difficult to talk to each other. That is why I rated the noise level where I did. This is a spot you should try.

                                                        Even with short staffing issues due to the high COVID numbers we are having, Barbara took excellent care of us and made sure we were well taken care of. She even gave us a tour of the hotel after breakfast. The food was delicious, we felt very welcome, and the decor was beautiful. We will be back!!

                                                        We like this new restaurant and will come back. Very much enjoyed the atmosphere when we were there in the mid afternoon. We were told it already has a good loyal following and then the entertainment are fun and we’d like to try that.We thought the food was good to very good. We had the hotcake and hamburger. Hot cake have a very good texture and enjoyed the presentation in a skillet. The taste was good. It was topped with crème fraise, candied pecans and berries. Hamburger was small and the meat sourced locally sounded promising but didn’t have much taste. The fries were cooked well but the truffle seasoning which cost extra was under done. It’s likely that if we brought up our perception of the hamburger we would have been offered an alternative on the spot as The service was very attentive.Based on the excellent Service and atmosphere and the food we thought this was a very good value and look forward to trying it in a different time of the day and some other items on the menu.

                                                        My boyfriend and I dined here for NYE, and we had a great time. The food was great, the atmosphere was excellent, and the addition of Will Toy playing live music was exceptional. We stayed at Elwood, so it was really awesome to have something to go do for the night that was in the hotel. 10/10 recommend

Mark (our server) was exceptionally friendly and helpful even though he was very busy. My son only wants to brunch here from now on!

                                                        We loved our dining experience! There were 9 of us and they accommodated us well! The bartender Mark recommended some tasty bourbon drinks ( my fav was “an almost old fashion” )The server David was so personable and fun! The space is beautiful and inviting. The drinks fabulous! Our food was very tasty maybe just a little tweaking with some spices and it could be fabulous as well! We will definitely be returning. Since it was a week night we had the entire place to ourselves so a great place to go if you want a quiet atmosphere!!!

The food was amazing! I will definitely be returning! I even hesitated to get the chicken sausage because I typically don’t like not pork sausages and it was SO GOOD! Everything tasted so fresh and well made. My poached eggs were perfect (which is rare).

                                                        I really wanted to like this place. The place itself is very well put together and comfortable inside. The drinks were good. I ordered the kale salad and the filet; my partner had the salmon. The kale salad was inedible; it was tough with too many stalks left in, hardly any dressing and just no flavor, I had to send it back. As for the filet, the steak itself was cooked to perfection and was delicious. However, the set up of brussel sprouts and fingerling potatoes were completely bland and not cooked enough. It was just as if they had been roasted with no seasoning whatsoever. It was the same deal with my partner's food. The salmon was good but the barley and root veg it was served with had no flavor at all. To top it off the meal was over $100 with gratuity for 2 drinks, one salad and two entree, which I am happy to spend if the food is good. Of course it is a chance you take when trying out a new place, but we were sorely disappointed. You can't charge $40 for a plate that isn't even as good as what I make at home. The service was just ok, she was very nice, but didn't come back by after delivering the entrees to see if we were happy with it ( which in my time working in fine dining, was customary) Maybe they are still working out the kinks as they are new, but I wouldn't recommend wasting your money here. Go to Carson's or Dudley's.

                                                        We celebrated a birthday with a brunch at Fiddletree and it did not disappoint. It was like walking into a cafe in the middle of Paris but with and LA vibe! You can tell that everything down to the coffee cups were chosen with precision. We had the loveliest server and I highly recommend the cornbread starter and the Benedict.

                                                        Service was great, ambience was very chic and fun. Food was very bland and not interesting. The country ham fritters were a big disappointment- would have to hunt for the ham. Ordered the steak ~ very stringy and tough and the chicken dish was mostly tasteless. The service staff were very upbeat and accommodating. The restaurant is gorgeous- but food was a big let down for sure.

                                                        Our group was in the lounge vs the dining room and the music was too loud to have a conversation. This combo could have filled a concert hall with music, you could hear them outside the hotel. Food was great, service was excellent. Music needs to go or be MUCH quieter.

                                                        This place is wonderful. Cocktails and service were great. Food was really good. A new chef is starting soon to expand out the current limited menu. The only issue was it is so new there aren’t many people. There were 4 of us in the restaurant. Then it was down to just us two. More people and that chatter in the air would defiantly help. It was great and I can’t wait to go back.
