Atmosphere and food are spot on. Such great food! The deviled egg is amazing! Also had the charcuterie board that was outstanding!

Wow! Such creative interpretations, done well, presented by knowledgeable staff and made with a love of fine food. Their take on deviled eggs is my idea of heaven. Root beer float blew my mind (in a good way). Funky vibe, excellent service. Great!

Outstanding anniversary dinner tonight at Nightbell! Deviled egg was heavenly. Stake tartare was a mini cone of raw deliciousness! Chilled cucumber soup was the best I've ever had! Then lobster ricotta, burger, and duck to finish. All small plates with Big attitude. Cocktails were yummy...More
