Love this place, the people are fantastic, the original art on the walls makes for beautiful ambiance, and the food is always great--fresh ideas, pretty much locally sourced I think, and so many homemade and handcrafted goodies. Also, total trust them on their wines, which are also delicious!

I was so confused. These folks sit down next to you at your table and tell you all about all kinds of things on the menu. . . in excruciating detail. I don’t care for servers being overly descriptive which was the case here. Then, the food showed up. Holy smokes do these people know what they are doing. The fried green tomatoes were very good. Was NOT expecting a cold boiled shrimp (which was a wonderful shrimp) on top of the fried green tomato. But, it was incredibly good with an unusual blend of textures, flavors, and temperatures. Then came the duck and the short rib. The duck was fantastic. The beans that came with the duck were incredible. And, the short rib IS THE SINGLE BEST THING I HAVE HAD IN ANY RESTAURANT IN 2 OR 3 YEARS!!!?

We had a whole lot of fun and really great food at this restaurant. They have an interesting way of operating. Only open 6 months a year. Three chefs take turns running the kitchen. We did several shared plates and then each had our own entree. The wine list has some interesting bottles. Staff and service was great, food was fantastic!

Cant say enough about this restaurant. Excellent food and great service. Patrick is so funny and I'd come just to have him sit, chat and explain the menu! We had the duck sausage, eggplant spread and truffle cheese on the board which were all delicious. The fried green tomatoes are a fantastic. My husband had the shepard's pie and loved it.

The wait for food is unconscionable. We waited an hour for appetizers and another hour for mains. If hungry, no help from bread since there is none. We have spoken with others who had the same experience. See reviews on Trip Advisor with same experience. Patrick the owner was not apologetic.

This was one of our top dining experiences. The ambiance is quaint and sophisticated. We were greeted so warmly and we had specialty servers. Our mixologist served amazing cocktails with detailed history. Josh and Patrick helped us decide over the menu and our food was beyond delicious... it was an experience.

Thank you to everyone who made our evening special!

NYE thought we’d try something new! Great find, very nice ambience, great fried green tomatoes and very solid duck cassoulet. Nice wine selection. Excellent service from host staff- but then, while very knowledgeable and gregarious, the wait staff kept our 2 course shared dinner with bottle of wine dragging on for about 3+ hours.... know busy on NYE....offered nice port to cap off meal to compensate. Definitely worth a visit when we are more hungry and it’s not so busy to see what else they can do!

Amazing experience. Chef Patrick came out and told us about the restaurant and the menu. We did a board to start (the manchego, duck pastrami, and kalamata/ricotta were excellent with the homemade lavash)! We then shared the fried green tomatoes, salmon tartare, and lamb falafel - each was incredible as far as taste and presentation. We finished with cannoli and French press coffee. Truly a top meal and dining experience!
