The meal exceeded our expectations. Our server Bret was just outstanding. Selection of cocktails and wine by the glass was great. Try the Strawberry Basil Manhattan!!! My wife had the Halibut and I had the Veal Francese, both were excellent. Topped it all off with the Lemoncello Cake! Just a great experience--Thank You!

Very attentive and the best service we have had in years at a restaurant!

The music was well-chosen and enabled us to celebrate our anniversary without having to raise our voice to compete with music or other conversations.

One of our top favorites for future dates!

Four of us had a delicious dinner but the service was horrible. I think the waiter may have been the only one on staff and serving every table. But he was trying to serve our plates so fast that he nearly hit us in the head with dishes. Spilled the wine he was serving and my husband had to go find him to take our order after over 40 minutes waiting. The food was good.
I got the feeling there were quite a few regular customers their; which is good for this restaurant. But not so good welcoming new customers like ourselves. Although the food was good, everything else was so disappointing, we won’t be back. There are so many other great choices in Charlotte to have a bad, expensive dining night out.

First, the food was outstanding, I had the veal chop and my husband the Dover sole. Both were superb! The only drawback on food was my husband’s green beans were still raw. We also had the crab cake appetizer which was fantastic.

Service in the early parts of the meal was terrific then fell short when our waitress had to help the bartender and disappeared for longer lengths of time. We had to wait at least 15 minutes after our meal was cleared to order coffee. Overall, reservation was at 6:00 and we didn’t leave until 8:15 because of a few delays.

We would go back, but make sure we are seated somewhere the wait staff isn’t functioning in multiple roles.

The food and wine were excellent, but the service from our waitress really was the outstanding factor. When my husband requested a wine they were out of, she gave him two samples she said were similar and she was spot on. When I told her I wasn't sure about ordering a dish with a spicy sauce, she recommended a swap with a vodka sauce which turned out delicious. She made the difference between a good dinner and a great night out.

We tried the gnocchi, chopped salad, papardelle, and the fish special. Hopefully the restaurant was just having an off night, but everything was terrible. Service was also very slow.

We went here on a date night. The service and food is amazing. The staff were very friendly. The black eyed peas they give as complimentary was just too good (I prefer soft bread though). The waiter was very accommodating and helped with customizing to our tastes. Roasted chicken was juicy and tender.
We will visit again....
