“This place kicks!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

What a great little find. A wine bar with a great selection of wines and good selection of beers and awesome food. The staff is fantastic and the owner is a great guy. This place uses top notch ingredients and I ordered a dark and stormy and the bartender pulled out fresh ginger root and started pounding it mojito style to make the drink, which was excellent by the way.

“Do not miss experience”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Great staff, outstanding chef, a do not miss for the discerning palate .From presentation to delicate mix of texture and flavor, an all star meal. We had the lamb and the special pork tenderloin both of which we literally passed back and forth to celebrate the flavors each dish offered. The owner Mike has a flair for making and developing cocktails. We just asked, and he made us a wonderful concoction he's been developing, not on the menu, very special service.

“One of our best dinners in the Virgin Islands”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The owner couldn't fit us in when 8 of us dropped by (flight delays due to crazy weather meant we were "stuck" in St. Thomas without a plan.) Then he did the most amazing thing - he walked us around the corner to the Twisted Cork. We had a beautiful meal and great night there, but returned to Epernay two night's later (still stuck:)) and experienced the intimate, cozy and fun atmosphere that is Epernay. Our meal meal was delicious and there was something for everyone. Not to be missed.

“You'll love everything”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

My family was walking around Frenchtown and the owner was standing outside. He stopped us to ask if we knew the area and gave us a 2-minute rundown of the restaurants. Very cool.

We walked around a bit more and came back to have dinner.

Calamari and Leek soup to start - The Calamari was tender and really worked well with the chutney they serve instead of tomato based sauce. The Leek soup is served tableside (nice touch) and is creamy and not over powering.

I moved on the Lamp Chops which were superb. The only complaint I have is the waitress didn't try harder to talk me into a medium rare instead of medium. The only thing that stopped them from being perfect was completely my choice.

My oldest son had a Kobe Burger. Big, juicy and tender. Hard to review a burger except to say it was perfect.

My Wife and 8-year old both had Steaks Frittes (I love saying Frittes). Excellent. Perfectly cooked. Simply but perfectly seasoned Frittes. I'm embarrassing myself with all the gushing. :)

We were having an early meal so I didn't get to sample the excellent selections of scotch or bourbon, but next time might be different.

Great place. Highly recommend.

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 via mobile

Awesome wine list! Great food at decent prices. Best meatloaf!!! Fun and knowledgeable staff. Risotto fritters were sublime. Sweet patio seating is romantic at dusk and after dark. Wine served in correct stemware, and treated with respect by staff. Parsnip puree was just yummy! Got there in an argument, left smiling and holding hands! Literally dancing with the staff. Great find!
