After reading some of the reviews, I was a little hesitant but am so glad I experienced this place for myself. We did have an earlier reservation (6:30) on a Saturday night, so when we arrived the place was all but empty. We enjoyed an expertly mixed cocktail and the bartender(s) were both friendly and attentive to our wishes. After... More

Slow night, pork way under cooked, so I asked for a little more fire to it. So the kitchen sends back shoe leather. Real professionals. Oh, and that took 40 minutes. Do they have a basketball goal out back or something?

Just returned (party of 4) from this up-stream sharing Athens eatery. Lovely room, nicely decorated, spacious seating. We shared beef carpaccio (nice but the meat overly marbled for this dish), cucumber salad (lovely, crisp & refreshing), Scotch egg (a recomened speciality and rightly so), the mussels, pigs ears, and poussin chicken. The chicken was red inside & unhealthily inedible. We... More

It's a Saturday night, 7pm reservations. We were running late so my wife called to say we would be a few minutes late. We arrived at 7:10pm. Waitress while nice was obviously inexperienced. Food was what we expected as we had been there a couple times before [Orientation, college visti, etc]. Food VG! Now for the not so good. We... More

Meats are the feature at this little gem. I'm going to review on the overall restaurant, because I am a pescatarian. They also serve fish and oysters, which are divinely prepared. Also, be prepared to pay for the privilege because each oyster is around $3 each. Sadly, that seems to becoming the norm at high end joints, like this. Every... More

I suspect this is the best place downtown. Scottish egg was terrific, as were the mussels. Strangely, the filet was not on the menu. Ambience and service were beyond what I expected.

We went with another couple to have some drinks and small dishes before going elsewhere for dinner. The drinks were well done and we enjoyed some differently prepared snacks. Definitely would go back for this. We looked at the dinner menu but did not see anything that interested us and kept our original plans. They have an unusual menu that... More

We had a very tasty meal and the service was excellent. Our waitress was somber but friendly and knew her stuff. She knew the wine list and was an obvious professional at what she was did. Everyone in our 5 person group enjoyed their meal and walked away satisfied.

Thank Jaydewald
