Bartenders are super friendly and accomodating. Ive been here a few times but never had a meal, just appetizers. Its a great place for a drink or to relax after work or an exhibit at Crystal Bridges.

I heard a great deal about this restaurant and expected a high quality dinner. However our dinner was just mediocre. The special short ribs that the server lauded were fatty and unappetizing. The pork chop had nothing special about just grilled. Pimento dip appetizer was...More

It just is not good. The service is painfully slow. When the food came out, the meat was room temperature. Everything was covered with salt. In fact there was so much salt on the vegetables, that they were inedible. I will not return. Do yourself...More

It was great. I sort of expected a lower key night, but I was very pleasantly surprised that I was in store for an amazing coursed meal. Server Jefferson was amazing as usual. I let him pick my cocktail for me. It was humorous finding...More

If you want a unique dining experience, go here. Honeycomb and vine decor complete with 4 ft tall green penguins join your dining experience. Service was outstanding, and food was good but lacked a lot of flavor.

Our favorite place to sit is in the furthest most corner 2-top banquette - at the opposite end of the room from the hostess stand. Because it is the corner, it is L-shaped, so it is nice and cozy and feels somewhat private.
