Our experience with this restaurant has not been good. The first night, we had the Sirloin Steak and the meatloaf. The steak was an awful cut and full of gristle. My meatloaf and creamed corn side were cold. The service that night was good and very attentive.
The next night we had mussels as an appetizer, which were honestly the worst mussels I have ever eaten. Full of sand and again ice cold. The charcuterie and the cheese board are completely underwhelming for the price. Would not eat there again.

Our service was excellent with server offering us tastings of champagne and cava for us to chose from but we went with bottles from the shelves. Decent selection and pricing. Something for everyone on the food menu. Short ribs were excellent and the added smashed potatoes were a favorite. Meat loaf could have used a little au jus or sauce on top. It reminds me of a bistro in Europe. They were friendly and helpful in changing my future reservation on busy Easter which I greatly appreciated.

It's a weird space: it's too big to be a brasserie, it's not sophisticated enough to be a restaurant; it seems more like a market, aside from the big bar, which is cool.

Lousy vegetarian option, only one and it wasn't good. The pork chop was great, but the ambiance for dinner is odd and unappealing, the wine store/bar/restaurant combo makes for a weird vibe for dinner... definitely not a location to take a date!

Service and ambiance were amazing!
We did have to wait a little bit up front for the hostess to get to us. But other than that the service was above par.
And we absolutely loved the ambiance.
The food was not great, bland and a little...greasy? My mom had the brick chicken and she had to peel the greasy skin off to get to the chicken. I had the pasta and it was definitely bland, and served in a light brown soup.
I do want to try brunch here, it may have just been an off night! I would still recommend for a special occasion!

We had a great evening celebrating our anniversary. The menu had ample selections ... I am not a fan of shrimp and grits, but these werw as tasty as they sounded. We took our time and never felt pressured. Our waitress (Valerie) was the best, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and great to talk to.

Had an amazing Valentine's dinner here. The holiday-specific menu that evening was on point. Had the delicious mussels for an app, and the beef cheek with the lobster tail was maybe one of the best meals we've ever had. That's only the beginning. The entire staff was fantastic and accomodating. We felt like we were regulars there, even though it was our first time. Glad I was able to get a last-minute reservation. We'll be back very soon.

We came for happy hour but they didn’t have happy hour prices due to valentines weekend. This was not communicated when I made the reservation. Also the server was very rude and it felt like we were a burden on him. Very upset with our first experience as we were looking forward to trying out this spot.

A hip spot, but I’m staying in the hotel and I expect better food at a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel. Had one meal. Very unimpressed. Will walk in cold temps to get better food.
