Highly recommend, get there before 5:30 for special menu, great martinis and cocktails, try the jambalaya, or pork shank

“Very nice place to have a relaxing evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

This is a small restaurant, so call ahead or be prepared to wait to get a table. We actually watched several couples that wanted a table that were turned away. The food is great, but a somewhat limited menu and beer selection. There are no short order foods, and yes the price is on the high side.

It is a very leisured environment, and while the wait staff is attentive, expect a two hour visit, not a place to go for a quick dinner.

I had the best bowl of soup ever, it was a cream of mushroom that had a few additions and whatever the chef did really worked, I could have just had a giant bowl of it and called it a night.

They also have very limited hours of operation, 5-9pm.

“Fine Dining=Good Food & Wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Great food, nice atmosphere, knowledgable service, good wine selection! Deserves a 5!! Best place in Walker if you are a foodie/wino! Only side note-wine is a little high priced, must be doing full mark-up!

“An attempt at fine dining...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

The place has more upscale hype than a real fine dining experience but this is not necessarily complaint. I would say the ambiance is nicer than the average restaurant but without a view of anything, it lacks the wow factor. Prices are way overpriced but the food is good. The seasoned olive oil, parm cheese dip for the bread was a nice touch, something a little different. Husband had the ribeye, I had the pasta primavera with shrimp both were tasty. Creme brulee was a nice ending to the meal too. Overall I would recommend. I would actually tell people not to fear going here because its "too fancy."
