“Upscale Restaurant with a Friendly Disposition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Ate here with several colleagues, and the service was friendly from walking in the door, and the food was very good. We had the pork shoulder, scallops, and a salad, and they were all very good. It is a nice place to go with friends - a bit of a buzz, but not too noisy so you can still have a normal conversation.

“Great atmosphere and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We walked to the restaurant in the pouring rain. Our server was very considerate and gave us napkins to wipe off with. That set the mood for a great evening. Really nice atmosphere and not too noisy. Great wood oven prepared food and especially the sides we had the beets and frites . Nice wine selection. Excellent service.

“Good food but pricey for what you get”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

The restaurant is pretty big and is really nice inside though the exterior is pretty cookie cutter in a strip mall. The food is served a la carte and we were told by our server that everything from dressings to breadcrumbs is made from scratch in-house. They are a farm to fork concept, with most of it being local. The portions vary so if you're very hungry ask whether a side is necessary.

I had pork spare ribs, slaw, frites the ribs had a great flavor I have no idea what kind of vinegar they were done in but it was very unique! I loved it but I must say the ribs themselves seemed very fatty and not an amazing quality but they were made to perfection! The fries some yelpers bragged about were just ok nothing special but not bad. My brother ordered the spice rubbed & smoked wings. Talk about flavor wow they were smoked to perfection I ate two of them before my brother was ready to stab me with a fork! The only problem is its 12 bucks for an order of either 10-12 not sure so very pricey! So all in all a good visit is remember you are paying high dollar for your meal.

For desert we ordered the coconut cake and the & caramel cake w/caramel sauce, praline gelato, both were really good above average quality and taste. I would say all in all this place is worth your time to give a try I really liked everything about it even if it a little price especially since the ribs had a flavor unlike any i have ever had!

“Not as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

On a business trip a colleague recommended this spot for drinks after work. It was described as a sports bar so we were expecting it to be more casual than it actually was. The bar seating was not great and the drinks were pricey...NO happy hour. The drinks and service were both good but it was a bit pricey.
