Shhhhh.... one of my favorite spots in St Augustine. Located on the oldest street in the US- Aviles (pronounced Av-eh-leez) Street. Excellent food, drink and service! Special shoutout to our waiter Jackson did a great job of being attentive without hovering. Locally sourced goodness and inspiring tasty cocktails. Sit outside along the sidewalk or inside and watch the trolleys and horse-drawn carriages go by. Just don't tell anyone- because then it will be harder to get a table. Enjoy!

we started with cocktails —Saturday happy hour prices— they were wonderful. We ordered the Brie. It was out of this world! The raspberry “sauce” with almonds, the crackers to nibble with, the fresh fruit-blackberries, grapes, & strawberries. It was over the too great! I had a small cup of the squash soup and the flavors!! to die for!!!

We decided to order a second brie as we loved it so much! What a wonderful little nook for lunch. Parking was ridiculous so get there 30 minutes early to find a nearby spot. Otherwise, it was just perfect! It’s moved to the top of our list

Outstanding food and drinks. Sitting outside listening to a street performer and people watching made for a great dinner! The vegetable flatbread appetizer was delicious and the Manhattan made by the mixologist was perfect.

We ate inside--no tables for 4 outside we were told--Great service (masked--thank you!) , great cocktails and very friendly staff. Food was great too--just a bit better timing; soups and salads came out with entrees...after we had enjoyed apps. I had chicken (with grits instead of massjed potatoes)--and it was awesome. Others had shrimp and grits and also enjoyed theirs--only problem was NOISE level--fine when we arrived [early, 5:30 ish] but so loud by the time we left we could not hear one another across the table.

We sat outside which was delightful!! Their location is superb! They have a great bar! I do feel they could expand their limited menu although my husband & I split 4 appetizers. Everything was good! We will return as we always do! We miss Johnny terribly but wish him well in his new endeavor!

We celebrated our anniversary here in 9/25/20. We loved it. It’s a beautiful atmosphere. Our server was great and very attentive. We got the Cajun egg rolls to start and then shared the blackened shrimp and grits Etoufe. It was so great and fun spin on shrimp and grits. Now the drinks were amazing and the ladies behind the bar impressed me With their simultaneous shaking and stirring two drinks at the same time. I will definitely be back.

Forgotten Tonic is a must try! We made reservations for a Thursday night to celebrate my boyfriends Birthday. We were seated immediately & ordered happy hour drinks and the Montenegro Meatballs which were delicious. For dinner my boyfriend got the Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection and I highly recommend the Pasta Primavera with Shrimp, there was a solid portion of shrimp and had some crispy asparagus on the side! The staff was so friendly and even brought a birthday dessert out! You should definitely try out this place for your next date night!

Drinks were awesome! Unfortunately, the food was another story. They served me completely raw chicken and my wife had a burger and the bun was pretty much frozen. They were extremely apologetic and we sent both of our entrees back and once new ones were cooked it was pretty tasty. They comped our dinners and one round of drinks so they definitely made up for the problems and we’ll give them another try because of that! We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Went for lunch and had a wonderful time. My husband and I sat at the bar and enjoyed the FGT, soup and arugula salad. Everything was great. Most enjoyable was talking to the owner- he was so nice. They practiced social distancing. I can’t wait to visit again. Also the drinks were delicious.

Our table wasn't quite ready @ the time of our reservation so we had drinks @ the bar while waiting; perfect! Hannah, our server was attentive but not overly, perfect again! I had the Cobia on stir fried grains; super tasty not overly Asian tasting & my husband had the pasta Primavera that was outstanding, though the shrimp he added w/ it he thought were a bit overcooked. Make a reservation as soon as you can for this delightful gem in Saint Augustine!
