They obviously are having staffing problems, I assume due to covid. The food took 1.5 hours to come out. The restaurant was less than 20% full. There was enough wait staff, but not very well trained. We cleared our own table had to ask several times for utensils, bread, water....But the food, once it came, was AMAZING. Like really excellent.

Fantastic homemade pasta!! Delicious Bang Bang cauliflower and the pecan bourbon bread pudding with ice cream reminded me of grandma's bread pudding. Also, great service with very relaxed outdoor seating. Excellent music selections were played on sound system at a volume that allowed conversation. Well Done!!

3 of us came in for restaurant week and were not disappointed! The prosciutto and peaches on toast was amazing, as was the fish and chips, and the bread pudding dessert. I don't drink alcohol, so I asked the bartender to make me something with juice and fizz and he created a mocktail that tasted like a mimosa! 3 courses for $35 and the quality was like an upscale Manhattan restaurant. Jupiter, our server, was outstanding. Daniel, the General Manager, came by our table to make sure we were happy. We will be back, again and again!

My husband and I had a reservation for 7:30. Understandably with Covid, the kitchen was behind due to staffing so everything took a long time on delivering to the table. We both had a cocktail which was great and shared the shrimp as a starter. My husband had a burger and fries which were tasty and decent size portion. I had the veggie grain bowl with chicken which was FABULOUS. We would have given them a much higher rating if it wasn’t for the service and the long wait time. We didn’t walk out of the restaurant until after 9:20. We will most likely go back again due to the quality of the food and hopes that service will be better.

My friend and I ate here during restaurant week and our experience had some bumps. Service was polite and our server was working hard but our food took waaayyy too long to come out. We waited an hour for a first course and then another 45 minutes for an entree. Then our dessert came out while our entree was still on the table. While I would give high marks for our appetizer and the dessert, our entree was bland and unexciting. In short, I'll go back and give them another chance given current staffing challenges and restaurant week busy-ness...but the next round has to be great for them to keep my business.

The food was absolutely amazing. The fried oyster appetizer melted in my mouth, and the shrimp & grits were the stuff of dreams. The space was lovely, but the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is the really uncomfortable chairs. They look wonderful, but are downright painful to sit in unless you are the size of a child. Would suggest one of the bar height tables to avoid those seats. The food is top notch, and the service was outstanding.
