About

Chef Marcel is back and has created a new menu of American style of food but fused it with his French background. We now not only have fresh farm to table meals but we have a great selection of boutique wines, beers, and have recently added some delicious soju infused cocktails (margaritas, cucumber martini, apple martini, mules, etc). Although we do not carry liquor at this time, these soju cocktails are so delicious you won't even know the difference.

Great service (our server was Valerie), gracious co-owner, Ali, who came over after our meal to make sure we were happy with everything. All the food (& wine) we ordered was delicious. My friend & I got the muscles and our other friend got the butternut squash ravioli. I substituted the garlic broccoli for the fries. We also got the chocolate souffle for dessert. Yum! The space was very pretty! I wish them lots of success!

We had a terrific dinner, kind and complete service, and a delicious dinner! Two of us had vegetarian meals. I had butternut squash ravioli and my husband had angel hair pasta (a very generous portion). Both were yummy. Our friends ate a chicken pasta dish and I have forgotten the other order. All were filled with flavor and very satisfying meals. A nice chianti complemented our choices. We shall return!

Unless you know exactly where you are going...it is difficult to find...once inside, the decor is nice...the food portions are very small for the money...my friend ordered the "meatballs"...and there were literally 2 tiny bites on the plate ...but the worst part was the older gentleman who was our waiter had the worst bad breath or body odor ....very distracting to the point of loosing our appetite...

Love this neighborhood treasure! Great food offerings-especially the small plates.
Good wine selection. This last visit had the most amazing shishito peppers and butternut squash ravioli.
Tarzan has long needed a restuarant like this!

Had a wonderful experience here for dinner for the first time on Sunday night. The cheesy Brussels sprouts, butternut squash ravioli, and the lamp chops were delicious! And make sure you get chocolate soufflé for dessert if it’s an option!

I sent to UNWIND the first time for happy hour and was so pleased I returned for dinner. Happy Hour was for pre-Birthday celebration and dinner was to cap off my Birthday celebration. They truly made me feel special, and the food/service was primo.

We arrived timely for our Open Table reservation, and the host said that there was available seating, and that if the reservation was made after 4 PM we were not included in the reservation book. After complaining they sat us at a seat by the door, and with the cold air from the constant opening of the door, it was not a very enjoyable evening.

Aside from the aforementioned, the food was good, but the service left something to be desired. I still don’t understand why they use Open Table, and ignore a confirmed reservation.

Had a reservation, showed up on time. Manager says "they are overbooked" but will have a table in 5 minutes. Shows us the table and then proceeds to take another wine order from them. We left, never to return. Party of 6 probably cost them 300+. Hope the cheap wine the table was drinking was worth it.

Will be sure to spread the word.

When I arrived and informed the host I had an open table reservation, he grunted something but did not appear to log in my arrival. When he finally led me to a table, I was to be seated next to a woman who smelled REALLY bad. I went to the rest room and informed my server about the problem he said”ok”, that he’d move me. When I exited the restaurant, he had not moved me, so I had to return to the original table. At that point the foul small made it impossible for me to enjoy eating dinner,
So I exited the restaurant and called them from the parking lot to inform them that I would not be eating there, and to kindly cancel my reservation. 2 things: 1. The restaurant was very dark and cold. 2. It was nearly empty. I don’t understand why I had to wait by the door to be acknowledged I arrived. The host nodded hello and proceeded to bus dirty dishes from the bar. Again, the restaurant has maybe 4 parties in it, not including 2 or 3 people at the bar. I did not eat there, so please disregard my food ratings.

All was good until the manager decided to reupholster the some of the cushions and use a staple gun in the dinning area which turned a nice evening with friends into a complete downer and kinda ruined the night. So doubt I will go back
