Jessica was excellent. She did not “hover” but was always available when needed. While we are not accustomed to that high level of fine dining, we felt comfortable and plan to visit again.

Nice atmosphere and good option for a romantic dinner. We decided to get mostly appetizers and enjoyed them, along with a great bottle of wine from a good selection. The Brussels Sprouts had more balsamic than we like, but the rest was great.

I feel so terrible because I wish I could remember our waiters name, he was amazing!! The food was excellent, the fried green tomatoes were the best I’ve ever had. Definitely great for special occasions.

We were there with family and friends on Friday night before the SC/Clemson Game. In spite of being very busy and the noise level, the food was delicious and Greg, our server was great.

It was our 1st anniversary. The atmosphere was very romantic and upscale. My wife is hard to please and she loved the food! Also, our server could tell it was our first time there. She was very patient and friendly. Overall, I give the experience 5 stars. We will be back!

Dinner was very good but there were items missing from our order. On another note, if you’re not familiar with the area the restaurant is hard to find.

The ambience and food are well worth the hike up to this second floor gem. Parking can be an exercise on the weekend but valet service is available and worth the money.

Fantastic restaurant. The wine, the food, the ambiance, all were excellent. We both had steaks - one fillet and one strip. The fillet was buttery smooth and the strip was juicy and perfectly cooked. Both of our deserts - the sweet potato crème brûlée was nuanced perfectly, using the sweetness of the potato instead of overloading it with sugar, and the Kahlúa cake was moist and delicious. We will return.
