    A small hidden gem on Hilton Head. Seafood steaks and vegan dishes set in an art filled dining room with some outdoor patio seating. The staff is attentive and not overbearing. Food is prepared creatively and is excellent.

    This was our first visit, the ambiance is unusual and unlike any other place we have dined in the area. That being said, the food was tremendous, and our server was welcoming, thoughtful and well versed in all of the menu items. We can highly recommend the grilled romaine, the salmon entree, the cioppino and the crème caramel. It was a great experience.

    The food was fabulous and the service was great. The menu had a few selections to select from which was very satisfactory considering it was a holiday menu Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere was most calming. I strongly recommend this restaurant. If you’re in a romantic mood, this would be my first choice.

    Our evening was just lovely. Being Vegan eating out can be challenging in is area. They have at least 5 different options to choose from. My husband who is not Vegan had many options. I had the jack fruit wrapped in rice paper which was amazing and very large portion. Hubby had the Caesar salad followed by the scallops. Our dessert was the vegan chocolate square. Will be returning. Just sorry I didn’t find this restaurant sooner❤️

Waitstaff very friendly and knowledgeable. Great atmosphere whether for a couple's special occasion or friends get-together or family celebration. Small, intimate, lovely atmosphere! Highly recommended.

    Dining here is an absolute treat. The food is always consistently good as well as the service! It's become a bit pricey but for a once in a while splurge this is your place. It is a gallery as well as a fine dining restaurant. Several vegan options are available as well it that's your thing. Nice wine and drink menu. Will definitely be returning !

We also enjoyed wandering around the restaurant, admiring the artwork. If you want a romantic evening with excellent food, service, and ambience, this is it.

    Appetizers , salads, and entrees were nicely prepared and presented. One of our servers was polite and helpful. A second server was unreasonable and gruff when we indicated that our cocktails had an unpleasant taste and we couldn’t drink them. The cocktails were removed from our table but not from our check. When I questioned their inclusion on our check, I was told they would not be removed. What a shame to treat a new customer in this manner. I will not be returning and will recount this unpleasant and rude approach to anyone who mentions this restaurant. Bad PR isn’t worth the cost of these two nasty flavored cocktails. What a shame!
