Amazing food! Very intimate atmosphere. I recommend reservations as there is not much space available and with food this good it fills up fast! We could see the chef through glass hand making pasta. The risotto appetizer balls were to die for. A bride and groom came in later to enjoy great food as well. Highly recommend!

Dinner and waitstaff were superb. The bourbon pecan encrusted chicken and braised pork tenderloin were cooked to perfection. Healthy portions. Presentation was very impressive. Can't go wrong here. Wish they were in my hometown.

This intimate restaurant, set in a storefront, is a must-try when dining in Waynesville. The fresh ingredients (food is farm-to-table, using local vendors), prepared in a flavorful and unique manner, really gave us a wonderful treat! The Ahi tuna was perfectly prepared with a tasty balsamic reduction, and my husband's choice of the "pork belly" was some of the tastiest... More

Several of us went here for dinner last week and found the restaurant to be very good. Décor is good and Andy the waiter is the best of all. I had a steak, albeit for the price was very small but tender and cooked to taste. The scallops looked to die for and were delicious as well. All in all... More

Sharing dinner with friends who are vegan, in a non-vegan restaurant can be difficult. Not here. The waiter and chef were so accommodating, my friends enjoyed a great dish. My husband and I enjoyed the grouper with the risotto rice and chicken marsala. The portions are excellent, ambience wonderful and most of all, the prices are reasonsible.

Terrific find. Great food very personable wait staff. Only thing is if you go MAKE RESERVATIONS as the place only holds 40 people Menu varies but both the tuna and steak were exceptional. Never expected to find a great place in a small town.

A must visit if you are staying in Maggie Valley or Waynesville, North Carolina. Great food big wine selection, super friendly staff. The owner and chef, Josh, prepares the pasta in house, grows most of the herbs he uses for cooking. Suggest that you made reservations as the place gets very busy with locals and out of town guest.

Consistently great food in a cozy atmosphere. Chef Josh grows many of his own herbs and vegetables. Reservations strongly suggested.

Good food, servings the right size. Scallops were delicious. My husband enjoyed the duck. Good wine list, too.
