    Was nervous to eat here for an anniversary dinner after reading mixed reviews, but so glad we did. We went on a Thursday and 5:30 and were the only ones there. They were out of a couple appetizers, one that we wanted, but we ended up getting the bread service with cheese and were so glad we did! Root Beer New Fashioned cocktail and wines were amazing. Filet steak and elk chop special were delicious. Mac and cheese side was nothing special. We didn’t have room for dessert! Our waiter is the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars - while friendly and fun, it wasn’t the vibe we were going for on a romantic date night. Made the experience seem watered down a bit. Will absolutely be going back though!

    Establishment was closed and should not be listed on Open Table. Did not know this until arrived. Wasted effort.

    This place has potential. It is way way better than it has been the last 2-3 years. Not sure it will ever be what it was in the past when it was one of the best restaurants in Little Rock, but it has made lots of strides which is great. The honeysuckle martini I had was refreshing and very good. The seafood fondue was decent but lacked flavor. It needed more cheese. I had the ahi tuna special which was beautiful but again was plain. It needed a sauce over it. Overall I was very happy to see that it is much improved when I last went 3 years ago. It is still pricey but I love the inside and ambiance. Such a neat hidden location. It still far behind what this place was 10 years ago but I will be back!

    Food was exceptional, but extremely overpriced. We were not given a price on the specials. We should have asked, because we would never have thought three scallops in risotto would be $70. The bone marrow app was absolutely delicious, but featured at $18, and we were charged $22. Short rib was average at best. Our server, Elliott, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Ambiance was lovely. Bill for two was close to $300 after two drinks, two entrees, and an app.

    Much improved for the last time we went. We ordered an appetizer and the specials: a ribeye and a filet and lobster surf and turf. Both specials were delicious, though pricey. Our bill with tax was $200 for the seafood fondue and the specials with only water to drink. We’ll be going back though.
