“Definitely worth Checking out for an amazing Apres Oyster Happy Hour!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Great place to go to for the oyster happy hour which is 5-7pm M-F and 3-6pm Sat/Sun, at $9.95 a dozen its one deal that really cannot be beat. They also are doing a great spring special right now that is a pretty awesome deal for a great tasting menu. I would highly recommend checking this place out. They also have a vodka tasting room, which is a bit pricy but if you are going for a special occasion it is definitely something you should check out once. Their staff is quite friendly and they have a great Sommelier.

I would say though the cocktails while pretty good are a bit pricy for what you get, but maybe that is just because I am from Chicago and use to really awesome drinks in the $15-20 range that have some amazing molecular gastronomy going on.

Overall for the oyster happy hour you cant beat it, be careful on how many drinks you have though because your bill can get pretty pricy. As for coming her for something special, I would definitely do the Vodka room as a end of night event which is very cool and something you wont forget.

“Best meal and great value”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Spring menu is $37 for an excellent all rounded five course meal.

Food was creative, delicious and well thought out. The pairing of every single piece on the dish was excellently matched with each other and the textures worked so well! A symphony in our mouths! A highly impressive meal that we thought was the best we had during out stay, amongst sidecut, rim rock, araxi and creekbread.

Service was very good overall.

“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend brought me here for a special night out and I couldn't have been happier! The food that I ate was some of the best food that I've ever eaten! We got the 5-courses at their special rate and because of this we were able to branch out and get the nitro ice cream to finish with as well as go and experience the vodka ice room - both if which were epic!
I couldn't recommend this place more if I tried. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and the staff were great too - very friendly and knowledgable. Dine here if you get the chance.
