I had the "special," which was gnocchi pan-seared with loads of garden vegetables and broth. One of the best meals of my life!

My sister was visiting so we decided to try a new restaurant for dinner. We got a variety of small plates to share. We had a great salad with watermelon, crispy avocado asparagus, butternut squash lasagna, potato gnocchi and Swedish meatballs. Every dish was delicious and I would get on a second visit. You must save room for the fresh... More

Simply put, the food was delicious! Here for the weekend and went on a site to check the reviews for a Sunday brunch spot and this restaurant had rave reviews. So, we tried this spot. The reviews were on point! This place is great. Food was delicious and a variety and our server Ashley were awesome. Highly recommend this spot.... More

We had heard good things about this restaurant and were excited to try it. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We ordered our wine, appetizers and entrees. It took 30 minutes for the appetizers to come out. These appetizers with chilled and did not have to be cooked just prepared. We asked about our wine. By the time the wine was... More

I recently stopped in for a brunch on a rainy Sunday morning. The brunch buffet was nice. I had the best brisket that I'd ever had. It literally melted in my mouth. Also the biscuits and gravy were amazing. The buffet also included cheese grits,desserts, cheeses and grits. The inside atmosphere is warm and inviting. But there seemed to be... More

We go out to eat at least 4 times a week in Charlotte. I would usually never leave a negative review but over the last 20+ years of dining at various restaurants, I have never experienced service like I did last night. Our server Ashleigh, was without a doubt the worst server I have ever had. The thing that kills... More

Outside unremarkable but inside was great! Waitress attentive and friendly. Had luncheon special with salad and was not disappointed. Owner/manager came to our table to inquire about service and to welcome us. Overall, great experience.

The most fancy and incredible brunch experience I've ever had, to begin. I would highly recommend having reservations (especially on a weekend) as my friends and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and had to lurk by the bar as the wait for a table was around 30-40 minutes. It was worth the work though! The buffet was spectacular and... More
