We’ve had fantastic servers here! Tonight was no exception! Our server was exceptional! The management is another story, they need to get it together. Second time coming here WITH reservations and given hard time about seating preference. Was told booths were for upcoming reservations, when literally all booths open. We were given option of half booth only until we persisted, then were reluctantly sat at a true booth. Are we less important customers? Well we were treated that way. Why do customers need to struggle with preferred seating when most of restaurant unoccupied to begin with? Not impressed with how management handled this situation, esp when they argue with the customer, translation: they lack customer service skills (or they simply don’t care). This place will not last if they don’t get their act together. Message to management....treat every customer like gold!!

First time visit. The entire staff was great. We chose outside seating as we were not aware we would have to endure the occasional heavy smoke from Pizzeria Bianco's oven when the wind shifted. Fortunately, we had masks we could pop on! We had many choices on the happy hour menu and enjoyed them all with one exception. We ordered the bag of. bones which contained 4 very, very tiny riblets over french fries. They were tasty but only getting about 2 bites of meat was disappointing. Desserts were great also. We would return.

Excellent food, excellent service, great ambiance. The ribs are to die for. Perfect amount of sauce. Chicken sandwich was very crispy and flavorful. Cocktails were good as well.

While the food was delicious, our server was not so wonderful. We were there to celebrate 2 engagements and a birthday and the server could care less. It took multiple tries to get a celebratory dessert, additional asks for a candle, and then she just stuck it on the bill. We made sure to request the celebratory occasions on the reservation and the server just went through minimal motions.

Early lunch on Sunday, sat outside on a delightful day. 1st timers here get a courtesy dish from the kitchen (sensational pan fried or grilled brussel sprouts with bacon pieces and slow roasted garlic). Loved the semi-spicy, super tasty cup of tortilla chicken soup. Nice portion of Caesar salad with a delicious portion of grilled salmon on top, and a very generous portion of stringy French Fries on the side. Too much to eat really for 2 persons but the tastes were wonderful. Only "kink" was that the server never came back to the table once lunch was served to check on whether we needed anything. We would go back here, however, to try something new on their diverse and large menu.

Every Thanksgiving friends of ours bring us a pumpkin pie from this place that is THE BEST you will ever have. We decided to try it out, and man, are we glad we did! Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. All her recommendations were a hit with our group! Get the smoked salmon starter, short ribs and DEFITNITELY the butterscotch pecan pie! The key lime was fantastic too. The more casual ambience was a nice change for the Biltmore area. We'll be back!

This restaurant has great potential. We love the ambiance, food and cocktails this place has to offer. First experience was outstanding, but the second experience was okay. Was initially told 1.75 hr wait but found earlier reservation on open table just minutes later. Trouble is the management seemed unsure about this, and all I remember hearing from the woman was “well we are expecting other reservations” (🙄which customers don’t want to be told especially when they also have legit reservations and are present at doorstep.....it makes customer feel as though their presence isn’t as important). It was a bustling night, the management and workers seemed somewhat frazzled, but the skill is making it seem as though you are not frazzled. We would’ve liked to have seen overall warmer service, even when it means waiting a little longer for food and cocktails. The waitress with the long braids (not our main waitress) brought me the salt and pepper as I requested but dumped it off at the opposite end of table then scattered away in a hurry.

Enjoyed the experience. Our server seemed a little overwhelmed and new so that is not indicative of the standard service. She still did a solid job. The food was fantastic. We will be going back to try some of the other starters and entrees. We are bringing friends next time as well.

1. When walked to the table they made us sit on the same side of the booth for " social distancing" yet the booth in front and back us was " allowed" to sit on either sides of the booth, therefore what was the point of us sitting on the same side? This made our dinner awkward & kind of uncomfortable.

2. Was never told the were out of onion rings & just gave me French fries instead. I had to ask about it & the response I got was " I was told 10 minutes ago we were out" Mind you this was after our food was already brought out by a food runner. The server never really seemed like he was going to say anything, if I hadn't asked about it. Cleary communication isn't important. Yes, it shouldn't be a huge deal BUT I love the onion rings and they are one of things we come for. To top it off the chicken was extremely dry.

The food was great. The rotisserie chicken is my favorite dish on the menu. The buttermilk pesto dipping sauce for the onion rings is to die for. The service was ok, I feel like this is always the case though.

Team service was confusing when tipping. One server was great, the others not so much. The food was overpriced but tasted good. I will not go again.
