Open kitchen, delicious food, dedicated service, all in an environment that could be in any European city. Ate over the holiday weekend, so it was very, very busy. Marianne, the hostess/owner, gives a fun description of wine by the glass specials, even to one who doesn't drink. Sarah, our waitress, was sweet and took the time to ask the chef... More

Visiting from Pennsylvania, came in with friends at the last minute on Saturday of 4th of July weekend. Had a delightfully friendly and helpful waitress - especially since we couldn't narrow down our choices. Our table ordered French Onion Soup - probably the best I've had in years, and Lobster Rangoon to share to start (if we lived here it... More

Trying to find the proper words to describe how poor the staff and food is at chef warrens is difficult. Words like profound and exquisite is what you might expect but this is not the case. Vile people and terribly prepared food is what you should expect if you decide to go to this establishment. I will briefly describe each... More

Tried this restaurant for the very 1st time, and yes BTW the last time. Horrible service. Waited 45 minutes for appetizer. 1 hour+ for entrée. Noise level intolerable. Couldn't hear the person sitting next to me. Food gets less than 1 star. French Onion soup or whatever you want to call it, not edible. Filet of beef so tough I... More

The restaurant has great atmosphere and the menu seems to hold promise, but the end result left our taste buds unsatisfied. Bland Mahi Mahi, cold tacos (They said they were supposed to be served that way, but cold mushroom tacos? Really?) and "classic" escargot without garlic. The waitstaff was unapologetic.

This is a favorite restaurant of our hosts and they chose it for their anniversary dinner celebration. There were 26 of us and we thought they put on a lovely dinner for us all.

Was there recently on a quick golf getaway. Only three tables taken. Pate app was very good as was the French onion soup. Sweet potato soup was a big letdown...not a lot of flavor. Most had the steak and fries....nothing memorable...I tried the kangaroo...somewhat like boar but had a bite that didn't work for me. When Chef Warren is in... More

Chef is owner - buys from local farmers. Supports local charities and events. Hostess is wife and owner, Fabulous food and wine menu. Food prepared in open to the diners kitchen. No smoke or other distractions from kitchen. Lovely room, small and intimate. Great for special occasions. Fine dining and worth every penny! Not to be missed.

I have been told over & over through the years by multiple friends about Chef Warren's delicious mustard crusted Lamb chops. People would rave " This is the best lamb chops you'll ever taste". Well I finally decided to plan ahead & book for a special New Years dinner with friends. When I called to make the reservation~ I was... More

We wanted to get out of Fayetteville and explore a unique restaurant in Southern Pines. Our experience couldn't have been better. We started with crab tacos for an appetizer. I will order this everytime! Unique flavors and served just right. My husband ordered the duck, delicious and the sauce made it perfect. I ordered the fish special-Cobia and the chef... More
