The owner, he’s so sweet & makes it a point to stop to greet everyone. He let us know they were figuring out staffing issues. The service? Phenomenal! Wait staff so friendly and kind. Drinks. Phenomenal. My food came out cold, to which they did take back to warm it up without hesitation. My boyfriend ordered a steak, medium rare. Came out borederline well-done. By the time he noticed his steak was over cooked, my food had already been sent back and we didn’t want to “be those people”. But $54 for a steak, you’d expect it to be cooked correctly. It was genuinely disappointing because my boyfriend and I had visited twice to their original location & had such great experiences. This most recent experience was hindered by our mediocre food we received. Again, I really do want to emphasize how sweet & kind the staff were. I just hope the kitchen staff gets revamped so food is prepared & served correctly for the prices that are paid.

Would still be a great restaurant if they changed the menu and lowered entree prices. The atmosphere is not ideal for a special night-much better ambiance & service for brunch/lunch

We each ordered something different and shared bites... it was difficult to say which meal was best, but we all agreed that the pork chop was amazing- so moist and flavorful. The Pate on the Southern Charcuterie Board was more terrine than pate, but tasty none-the-less, and we couldn't get enough of the pimento cheese (we had to get more bread!). We were a little confused on how to get into the place (it's around the side).

The chicken liver appetizer (Which shared with 3 other people) was so outstanding that I think I’ll have it for my entree when I go back! We went on the first night in the shared space with Morning Fork but everything seems to run smoothly. My only complaint would have been that the vegetarian ravioli was under cooked. The filling was delicious but the undercooked pasta was tough. We will be back and wish Geoffrey and Emily lots of success in the new space!

The bread for the bruschetta was not toasted and very disappointing, especially given the great bread from Blue Dog they could use. The Harry Potter brunch decor detracted from the dinner ambiance and was trite considering the price point. 75” tv with Guy Fieri on was also distracting. The stand out was the generous side of risotto. I bet the brunches are a better deal, and the atmosphere is more suited for brunch.

No notice was given. Being from out of town, we didn't have any last minute options to celebrate... so we ended up in a sports bar up the street eating french fries. Very disappointed with the lack of communication.

They took the time to have the staff sign a birthday card for my boyfriend which was a really lovely touch.The restaurant is small but intimate and the staff really did a great job taking care of us. They were running a floor with only two staff members but tended to every guest as if they were the only one being served which was amazing. Food was absolutely delicious- we had the stroganoff and vegetarian ravioli. Highly recommend making the visit.

The other couple We were with ordered a dirty martini and shut it down after one. Best thing out of the entrees was the short rib. Besides that the other entrees were ok, nothing jumping out at you as far as flavor. The lobster fritters were just ok. Probably could have used more spice and sauce.

They were both good. The fritters were pretty good not amazing. The hot sauce and aioli was the best part about it. The brochette was the best thing we ate. It was flavorful and got us very excited for the entree. I had the Salmon. My wife had the shrimp and grits and my daughter had the vegetarian ravioli. The salmon itself was good. The presentation was beautiful. The flavor and the sides were to sweet for my liking.. The salmon steak was prepared perfectly. The shrimp and grits was pretty good. They put a large link of sausage that need to be cut up better. It was hard to cut in a vat of grits and not have it over flow. The vegetarian ravioli inside tasted really good but the ravioli was over cooked and cold. All three dinners were just ok. I’m sure at one time this restaurant was amazing. Or maybe it was the chef’s day off. When I pay $30-$60 a plate I expect amazing.They need to do something to get the magic back, or maybe it was always just ok.I’m not sure how old the current menu is, but they have a wide variety of things to choose from. The price would have been ok had the food matched the cost. The owner or manager (not sue) was very friendly. He stopped by our table for a small chat. I tried to get my daughter to send the ravioli back but we had John Mulaney tickets and didn’t think we had time to wait.

We had some food items that we wanted to trade out and it was no problem. Everyone to great care of us. Everyone spoke and made sure that we felt like this is our home and family. Had the owner pull up a chair and talk to us and tell I his store about this amazing place and really enjoyed the conversation. Back to the food the kale is a must have. If you don’t like kale you will like these. Brussel sprouts a must have if you don’t like these you will like theirs. Everyone had a different meal and we tried each other’s meals and wanted to trade but didn’t at the same time because everything was so delicious. Found out from the owner that they have a breakfast place and we’re able to get a reservation for today. Can’t wait to eat there. This place is great for a date, to celebrate or just to eat dinner.

Our appetizers were delicious. My wife had the swordfish and gave it a 10. I had the shrimp and grits. I would highly recommend this dish.

The atmosphere, food and service was outstanding. Eric was the manager on duty and definitely made the experience memorable, he had a unique ability to connect with the guest and made our night just that much more enjoyable. Next time we plan to try the cheesecake😉

The food was good (we had beef short rib and beef stroganoff), but the rooms were too crowded and noisy to really enjoy the evening. The crowded condition also led to very slow service for which our server and the owner/manager kept apologizing. Kudos: food (also enjoyed the mussels w/ sundried tomato broth) and wait staff (friendly, knowledgeable, attentive). Complaints: high top tables are uncomfortable, skimpy wine pours. Pet peeves: many places will comp a dessert on special occasions, this one did not; it took so long to get served and there were so many apologies, we expected some consideration on the cost of the wine. We may be back, but it won't be on a weekend.
