Quick stop for a glass of wine

Derek behind the bar was on top of things even with 8-10 people on him plus the waitresses wanting drinks for their patrons in the restaurant. The wine list was reasonable even having a French Rose. Nice late-night venue.

We can't honestly say we enjoyed this restaurant, even though one of our entrees was outstanding. Even though the restaurant appears from the outside as a quaint, secluded, romantic hideaway, it is anything but immediately upon entry. The building and motif are old, thus the acoustics are horrible. There were only about six tables in the room in which we... More

My husband and I both came away with the same feeling about this restaurant. The service was fine, as was the food. We found the atmosphere not to be for us. I believe it is meant to exude a distressed feeling in decor, but to me, I felt it needed a good scrubbing. Don't get me wrong, the mirrored wall... More

I happened into this little gem on a business trip and fell in love! It was a Monday which is their Service Industry night, so the bar was busy with local waiters talking to the chef to see what he wanted to cook, talking about the food, and just having a good time drinking. The group was loud and fun... More

An evening out with my hubby for my birthday, excellent service, food was wonderful and tastefully served, and server very personable and fun. Even put a lit candle on top of my cheesecake dessert. This restaurant is out of the way but well worth the hunt. Reservations advised as there is limited seating.

Loved this eclectic restaurant / wine bar! Staff and crowd were very friendly, food and wine were excellent and the restaurant was set in a very stylishly decorated old home right behind the Renaissance Hotel. Truly a gem!

Restaurant is in an old house typical of this city, with tables scattered in various rooms. Service and food quality were excellent. Portion size a bit on the small side.

My meal was great, and the atmosphere is great. I did feel like I was paying a very premium price for a pretty small portion, but the quality was high, so I wouldn't be opposed to going back.

Right across the street from the Renaissance in a little old home. Tables are tight so not a lot of privacy, but we got lucky next to a really nice local couple and joked with them all night. Had a the daily catch which was a locally caught trigger fish, not something you find often and it was amazing. Very... More
