    Searching for a unique and well reviewed restaurant within walking distance of our downtown hotel. This place was exactly what we all were looking for. Incredible bourbon selections, attentive staff, beautiful interior, insanely delicious food and it made for a true dining experience. The dessert selections were off the chart, literally the best tiramisu I’ve ever had, not like any other.

    Terrible experience…I’m not a Karen but I won’t pay for overcooked yet cold food served by inattentive servers. This was to be a special occasion and they knew this yet sat us at the smallest table against a wall. The table was so small that the bread plates overlapped each other and the only place to lay down the menu was on top of the tacky plastic chargers. Appetizer and salad was great but it went down hill from there. We ordered a rack of lamb and the filet. It took almost an hour to get our food with no explanation as to why. They were busy so we blew it off and anxiously waited for our food. They reward your food tableside with little propane burners yet our food was still cold. The filet was ordered medium rare and was beyond well done. The pan sauce was dumped on top. The rack of lamb was over cooked as well with each individual chop burned to a crisp. If there were five ounces of meat total I would be surprised. I asked the server to take the filet off our bill as I could not eat it. She offered to remake it but I declined considering how long it took to get our food prior. The maitre d…I believe his name is Al came over to us and seemed annoyed and flabbergasted that we did not like our food. When I told him that we e pe Ted the rack of lamb to be whole rack and not lamb chopped he told me I didn’t understand what a rack of lamb was and that he did as he had been in the business for 40 years. I have never been treated so rudely. I asked him to now take the lamb chops off our bill. He said he wouldn’t due to the fact that they were eaten off of. I protested and he said never mind, just go. You don’t need to pay for anything. The server and the hostess profusely apologized for the food and his behavior and offered us desserts to go which we declined. Server even refused to take the tip we tried to give her. At least the two of them has some class unlike Al and the establishment as a whole. Please give your money to another local restaurant.

    We arrived at 7pm, on time for our 10 person reservation. The restaurant was about half full. We ordered drinks and a bottle of wine which arrived in an acceptable time frame. At that point an hour and a half would pass before we received our entrees. Our friends in a neighboring table, as well as everyone around ordered after us and finished their evening before we received our food. Our server came by twice to say our entrees were coming right out. At 8:55pm we said we needed to leave without eating because we had another commitment at 9:00. They verbally apologized but still no food. Within the next 10 minutes our entrees arrived. We basically inhaled them from starvation and lack of time to enjoy. They brought cheesecake for all, of which we had no time to eat. Then they offered a coupon for a cappuccino in our next visit. This was such a huge disappointment! The entrees ranged from $27-65 and the restaurant was beautiful. But the service ruined it. We will never be back.

    In a beautiful setting, this restaurant is a special treat. Starting with the ambience, the wait staff is dressed in high style. But it is the food that is the star. Every dish is delicious. A little pricey but high quality. Interestingly there is a heft surcharge for separate checks so come prepared to figure out the check yourself and save some money.

With todays shortage of restaurant staff this place is doing something right to attract the right “talent”! Thank you for a very memorable evening ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Branzini on menu; what was served was not Branzini…a big hunk of white fish, maybe some other form of sea bass, but definitely not Branzini. They did not have the wine that I ordered (2020 Sancerre) and substituted a 2021. The veal was outstanding. Service was a bit slow with two trainees performing most of the work.

    We are on our way to The Chicago area, and overnighting in Clarksville, IN. Open Table once again came through for us with Vincenzo’s, in Louisville, KY, which was a fifteen minute drive from our RV park. We loved the table side service. We enjoyed the pasta appetizer special, which we shared. It was suggested by our server. I wish I remembered his name. He has relatives in Charleston, SC, which is where we are from. The rack of lamb was perfect for the two of us to share. We hope to come back one day. There were many interesting selections on the menu.

    I came here with my friends to celebrate my birthday, and this restaurant was AMAZING! The quality is the food was way beyond what you paid for. The food wasn’t filling like other Italian restaurants, so we were able to eat dessert, which was also fantastic! This place is perfect for special occasions and romantic date nights. I will definitely be coming back here in the future!
