    Great food and service. Food was really pricey as we paid over $300 for 4 dinners and drinks. Seemed a bit steep, but it is still one of my favorite restaurants in the area.

    This place is magical. It's intimate, elegant, intentional. The service is relaxed and invites you to take your time (If you're in that much of a hurry, you don't deserve to come here. Savor. Relish. Delight.). The food is complex yet refined. The folks who run this place are warm and knowledgable: Ask their opinion on food and drink and TAKE the advice! Reservations are highly recommended, parking is available but limited. Not a place to bring your little ones-and that's totally okay. Not everything should be for little ones-that's the beauty of growing up :) Try new dishes, things that sound wild to you-the chef and staff back in the kitchen are masterful and creative. There's a good Why for everything that goes in every dish and drink. Before our final cocktails arrived to place a resounding exclamation point on our evening, we were already planning our next visit. After the pandemic nearly shuttered so many places, this was the kind of night that makes you so, so thankful that some places held on and that this was one of them. Make a reservation to come to this spot right now. Don't wait.

    Love the ambience. The white sangria was phenomenal! Our server was excellent. The guys loved the fish fry. I would give the walleye a 4/5, but I think that's just me and fish. Will definitely go back and try something else. REALLY GOOD!

    Had a wonderful dinner of Shrimp and please try the Pinot Noir. It was excellent! The staff was just the right amount of friendly and very efficient. Noise level a bit too loud but there was a big table celebrating a birthday. Definitely worth a second visit!

    Had a great experience here! Everything we ordered was delicious: The filet, Amish chicken, burrata salad, wedge salad, crab & shrimp rangoons, and the chocolate pot de creme. Service was fantastic and the bar was nice enough to mix me up a delicious mommy mocktail. Only downfall (and not enough to dock a star) is that it’s tough to find. It’s on a main road (State St) but tucked back from the street and shares a sign with a medical supply store, which doesn’t stand out. Give yourself a few extra minutes to find it but worth it once you’re there!
