I chose to dine here due to a recommendation from a guest at who dines at my bar. I decided to go there for my mother's birthday. A few things...the food was excellent, the champagne was warm. When serving a bottle of expensive champagne, it must and I mean MUST be at the point before freezing, not room temp. The menus were paper, which is okay, but they were crinkled and were dirty. My feet stuck to the floor of the restroom and the door was full of dirty hand prints. The carpet was filthy and looked like it was original. The ceilings were dirty too. The decor (the painted walls to resemble brick) was a bit cheesy. That all being said, I understand the reason why I have not heard of this place prior to my visit. This place would be packed, all the time, if they renovated it. They have a spectacular view of the river and a gorgeous patio for dining. Customers in Fredericksburg CRAVE a place for fine dining, but that means having the whole package/experience.If Truluv makes these changes, I GUARANTEE this place will thrive. I will come back to dine, but I wish they would consider this because it is truly taking away from the AMAZING food and view. It's the little things that add up.
