As soon as I sat down for my reservation, I was approached by the manager telling me that me and my party had slipped in and that they were expecting a full house tonight so please be aware that they will need the tables. The server was quit and kind. The risotto was raw and the chicken and shrimp were dry. We waiting over 40 minutes for four risotto's(3 Chicken one shrimp, one pork chop, and one caesar salad). My friend also ordered an ice cream at the end of dinner which took over 20 minutes to come out and the manager was rushing our server to get us out so quickly, the server tried taking my friends ice cream while she was still eating; actually grabbed her plate.

As we were getting our stuff to leave, the manager and our server were rushing to our table with cleaner in hand before we were all up from our seats.

I was displeased with the overall experience.

I will say, however, the drink and pita bread that I ordered before entree was delicious.

Great service, good food and drinks. Can get a little loud since it's a small space but not enough to hender your conversation.

Everything was great! We had lots of oysters, crab cakes and they were even able to accommodate with gluten-free lobster dish that was FANTASTIC! It's a small spot with lots of charm and wonderful food, drinks, and staff. Loved it!

The food was amazing. Loved the music - loud enough to be heard but not so loud you couldn't converse. Very intimate so if crowded noise might be a problem. Altogether a lovely setting for a lovely meal.

This is one of my new favorite spots for a date night! The food was outstanding. The service was incredible and it was the perfect atmosphere for our night that we needed after a long tiring week. I had a glass of the Pinot Noir and my husband had the special Old Fashion on tap. He normally doesn't love them on tap but he was very pleasantly surprised and would go for another any time. We started with the Shrimp Cocktail and it was so fresh and good with the sauce having just the right amount of kick to spice it up. He ordered the Pork Shanks and he loved the Woodford Reserve Glaze. I ordered the Filet because I have been searching for a new one to love. It was incredible. Tender. Full of flavor and cooked perfectly. The roasted Brussel Sprouts were amazing too. Disty knows what he is doing for sure in that kitchen!

Drinks were good, ambiance was good. But sadly the portions were tiny and didn’t taste fresh at all. The brown butter cake was very tasty though. Too expensive for the portions. Would go back for strictly drinks.

We went when they first open so the atmosphere at night may be different as far as patronage. Everything in there was top shelf from the decorative motif, to waitress, to food, to the drinks. The price was a little more than what I initially expected to pay before being there but I felt it was appropriate for the experience and the wife and I do plan on returning.

Great food, great service! Had some cocktails that weren’t overpriced and very good. The food was prepared as ordered. There was a large group and they ordered before us. We thought, oh great our food won’t come out until all of their food does. Not the case. Food came out fast, hot and prepared exactly how we ordered it. Service was prompt and not over bearing. Overall great experience and we look forward to coming back and trying the Lobster Rolls. Heard they are fantastic and they get their lobster every week from Maine.

The food is wonderful. The service was a little distracted. Dishes arrived at staggered intervals so some of us had food and others didn’t. We tackled another servers and the fishes were ready so it all ended well but the server should have been on top it. The other servers didn’t seem to mind.
