Atmosphere and service was great and the food was excellent. The chef gave us a complimentary cup of soup that was delicious and needs to be on the menu.

This has been on my list to visit since I heard of them and I was extremely pleased. The food was fabulous - our waiter Ean was the best. Cannot wait to go back!

Everything we ordered was delicious with fresh ingredients. We each ordered a small plate and the warm mushroom salad and dessert. Although the salad was delicious, I had expected more mushrooms in the salad as they were barely discernable. We were seated outside, which was very comfortable and inviting, but we thought the live music was a little too loud for conversations. Almond dessert was awesome!!! The menu was varied and long, and I will read it online before I go again. Lighting outside made it difficult to read the small print. Would definitely go again.

I think we caught them on a bad night.
Food was average at best.
Service was friendly, but not around much.
Food arrived in an abrupt manner before completion of the previous course.
We will try again bc we have heard great things from others!

The food was delicious and I will return for the Chef’s tasting menu. The service was extremely slow. I understand a wait staff being in the weeds, but when the table that was sat and ordered drinks after you received their drinks before you isn’t a good standard. We did progressive 3 course brunch and had to time our drinks way in advance in order to time it correctly. These were just glasses of wine, not an overly complicated cocktail. Overall, great spot and I will return. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for better service.

What a fun evening! Beautiful restaurant with delicious food and wine. The band was too loud - we could not hold a conversation without shouting. Next time, we will try the wine cellar.

Superlative service. Waitress very attentive but invisible. Excellent wine list with several reasonable bottles. Charcuterie board sufficient for four. Oysters sweet but overpriced. Swordfish dish very tasty.

Girlfriend trip to Fairhope. Restaurant was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint at all. Vegetable flat bread, beet salad, shrimp toast, Cuban flatbread and the short ribs were amazing !!!!

Poor communication ... special and no long offered items not communicated until tried to order and was no longer available. Price for two scallops $28 not equitable with other dishes, mushroom salad hardly had any mushrooms. Menu should offer some sort of plain bread... not topped. Brought wrong drink, waiter was required to serve Inside and outside... too many tables to give attention. Paying bill took forever. Second visit and same issues.

We ate outside due to COVID... but our attempt to distance was ruined by 8 unmasked women who hugged visited and gathered within 2 feet of our table for over 20 minutes. We had to get up and vacate our table. The food was fancy.. but the mushroom toast was over salted. Loved the scallops and the panda cotta.

We were seated at a high top off main room- The stools/chairs were a very odd height. Uncomfortable both for my 6’2” husband and my 5’3” self. Our server was great and great cocktails. Very expensive but extensive wine list. The mushroom salad was amazing other than that our small plates were good but not anything to blow you away
