“We stopped in for a drink”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We did not have a meal in this restaurant, so we couldn't speak for the food. We weren't impressed with the bar service [& the bartendresses lack of friendly attitude], so we probably wouldn't go there again.

“Fantastic meal in the middle of the mountains”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

This was a fantastic restaurant. The service was outstanding and the wine list superb. Dinner was great. One of us had the trout, superbly done with great flavor. The schnitzel was as good as we had in the Black Forrest. The hanger steak was very flavorful and prepared to perfection. Dessert was out of this world with great apple cake and ice cream.

This is a must visit restaurant. Not cheap but well worth the money.

“Relaxed Elegance”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Excellent food, service, ambiance. We came for a quiet private dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We recommend it as a place to dine and remember with plans to return. The wine list exceeds most high end specialty stores.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

They know how to make your visit feel special. Host, wait staff and bartender were all very personable, courteous and efficient. Great food. Atmosphere is just right, we could actually talk over dinner.

“Special dinner place...great wines!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We have dined her several times and are always impressed with the mix of cuisines...country meets New Orleans. Fun and inventive chef! Love the crab entree and the jambalaya !
A relaxing diner...you would never think you were any place other than a Bourbon Street!
Ask for a cozy booth for a romantic dinner.
