Still good but was once great

As you walk through the door you see all the awards, mostly 2004 to 2006. The latest that we could see was 2013. Mostly empty when we went for lunch, you could sense that this was once THE place to go, but no longer. The menu looked unique and interesting and so did the presentation of the food... read more

We chose this restaurant because it had different items on the menu compared to the usual offerings. While we were pleased overall with our visit, I have to say that the food prep could have been better executed. My Chattanooga barbecue was a pork chop that was a bit tough and overcooked. The sweet potatoes were dry. It just wasn't... More

My sister in law was visiting from Chicago. I wanted to take her to the best restaurant she had not visited previously. The food...the menu choices..the beautiful presentation...good service...a most enjoyable evening. The seafood bisque was the best I have tried at any restaurant...very nice setting...good downtown location...certified green is a plus

Very disappointed! Food was not even hot, small portions and bread had no flavor whatsoever. My son's fiancé ordered the ravioli...very small portion. She said it was tasty just felt it was a child's portion rather than an adult entrée. My son had lamb and I had trout. Both of our meals were lukewarm. Will not return!

Met some friends here for dinner. I must say the dinner exceeded my expectations. I started with the watermelon and feta salad which was divine followed by the trout that was cooked to perfection and perfectly seasoned. Waitstaff was attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better meal

Came here at the recommendation of our riverboat captain. Glad we did. The food was a nice alternative to the heavy southern fried diet. The lambshank was moist and tender accompanied by well prepared vegatables. My wife's black bean burger was excellent. Green tomato cake was one of the 7 choices of tempting desserts. Sat at the bar for the... More

Extremely pleasant atmosphere and excellent food. Staff very friendly and helpful with selections. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Interesting note; a woman entered with 2 children and her dog. She was guided to the upper level which had an outdoor section. Amazingly the dog seemed to know his way and led the group.

After a few days of biscuits and gravy for breakfast, pulled pork for lunch and BarBQ Ribs for supper, it was nice to have a healthy meal. Delicious Spinach Salad and grilled trout.. They have a variety of healthy choices. This is a nice restaurant, pleasant ambiance and right downtown.

Stopped in on our last day and had brunch on the balcony. We liked it the atmosphere and food so much we revisited the city in July. This is a must try place as one of your stops.

We had to book a big staff dinner. This place was really perfect. The food was good. We didn't have to pay extra for the private room. The service was great.
