Loved our food. Service was on point. I got the chicken dish and the cream they put on top was amazing! Drinks were good too. I would recommend the bees knees. Was a little noisy but cute place

Went here as we were looking for someplace different. Food and drinks were very good. We opted for two appetizers and they were both excellent. Could be a frequent stop for us from now on in St A

Service was very friendly. Cocktails were average. Appetizers were great. Burger ok, Scallops were completely tasteless as was the succotash. Based on all the positive reviews we were very disappointed in the food. Can't say I would go back.

Food was mediocre and overpriced. The appetizer came burnt as well as the dessert. Steak was ok but not worth 39$. Drinks were good but way over pticed for the size.

Service was slow, though our waiter was very friendly. The food itself was mediocre and portions were a bit small. The meatballs were definitely the highlight of the meal.

The food and cocktails were truly remarkable! There were five of us at dinner and all were incredibly impressed at how good everything was. While we caught the very end of it, the holiday pop-up theme was super cute!

Very good food and service, we will return in a distant future The complete disregard for social distancing, need for decreased capacity and mask use still after one year of pandemic is the unfortunate reality created by local authorities in this restaurant and all others in St Johns county.

Everything was wonderful. We ordered two appetizers and drinks, all were excellent.
All of our entrees were well prepared fresh, seasoned perfectly and delicious. Tables were socially distant and the staff is wearing masks. The service was excellent and the ambiance was perfect!

Everything was absolutely spot on fantastic! Unbelievably impressed. We went for a special birthday dinner for a friend and the service by Kayla was outstanding, the food was out of this world, and they even provided a birthday cake for the birthday girl. Cannot give it enough stars!!!

Super cool place and fun atmosphere! The food was kind of bland and waitress flirted with my husband and took my wine with 2 sips left... Then tried the take my next glass with some left in it too. Overall funny experience but probably wouldn’t go back.

I visited the forgotten tonic for the first time. We were there for a birthday dinner to celebrate my friend. I made reservations for 6 and they sat us promptly. The wait staff and service were great, the food I was not impressed, their wine list was ok and drinks were good. Ambiance was loud and there was not very much social distancing.

Much more casual than previous cellar 6. Did not feel special for husband birthday. We were given dirty dishes with dirty water and food on them like they came out of the dirty instead of clean pile. Took a while to get clean plates. Asked for medium burger and got very well done. Fried tomatoes also very crispy. Scallops were tiny. The only excellent thing was my drink and it was overpriced. Felt tacky for what we hoped would be great birthday for hubby especially since we are not going out as much. Very dissatisfied and disappointed.

Overall it was an adorable evening. Christmas themed everything!! We opted out of the Gingerbread Old Fashioned and went with their standards...absolutely delectable! Bartenders made fabulous cocktails. Wine list was perfectly abundant and most of the food was stellar!! Only thing that could’ve gone better was our table:/ it was tiny and crammed into an awkward corner like deal, but no biggie. The cocktails made up for it!

We got the bruschetta and Meatballs for an app, both outstanding dishes. Mr. ordered a filet MedWell, however it came out a definitely Medium (which of course I loved.) I ordered the scallops with asparagus and corn succotash. Unfortunately, the scallops may have been sitting too long before the made it to the table because they were way overdone for a girl who knows who finicky searing scallops can be :/ and the succotash could’ve used more flavor/salt.

Kayla was an outstanding part of our evening! Perfectly attentive and timed each dish’s arrival well so we didn’t feel rushed or have the table crowded. A+

Again, overall it was a 4.5 experience! Perfect for a first date, will definitely return for a drink when in town and to get to try the infamous Brie Appetizer 😄

Shelby was our server and she was very attentive, personable, and very customer service oriented. My husband had the shrimp and grits and they were outstanding and I had the burger and it was one of the best burgers I have ever had. The fries were delicious too as well as our drinks. We loved it. We will return one day.
