My wife and I were visiting from Dallas and had read good things about this restaurant. I am sure glad we decided to try it.The atmosphere and service were fine but the food was out of bounds. My wife had "grilled shrimp and scallops" and was impressed with the flavor and freshness. I had the "sauteed shrimp" and found it... More

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant several times before as a couple and with large group. We arrived last night for our reservation for 8pm early and were seated within 7minutes. It was a lively atmosphere, although we were waiting for our table to be set even though we had a reservation, but that was fine. It... More

I am beginning to think that the Fredericksburg vibe is we do what we want and you have to like it or go elsewhere... "the customer is always wrong". Read any of the 1 or 2 star reviews and you can see what is going on here. Most of the high reviews are from people who live in the town.... More

We enjoyed the ambiance of this quaint little restraunt. Be sure you have a reservation as it is small and only a couple of waiters. We had excellent service and the food was very nice. We had the red fish which was cooked to perfection. Large wine list. Not a huge menu choice so might want to check a menu... More

From the very beginning("the slab of butter" mentioned by a reviewer was the best I have had in years), it was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, the service excellent, the atmosphere elegant and relaxing. Can't wait to come back! BRAVO!!

We felt as though we... More

Located in an old "Sunday house", this restaurant has outstanding food and service. Quiet and elegant, quaint building, friendly staff, diverse menu, I don't know what else you could ask for in a dining experience. This one will be on our list to revisit, soon.

We ate at this restaurant because of a friend's referral. The food was excellent, the ambiance was charming and service was just right. Be sure to make reservations.

We were 10 min early for our 6pm reservation and were told the server (older lady-owner I think) will get to us when she can since she was taking care of a large party. I guess one has to be exactly on time there. A slab of butter on a plate was on every table. I don't know how long... More

A slightly limited menu (vegetarians should check with the staff first), but some gourmet dishes on offer and a very good selection of wines. We both decided to try a chicken dish and were delighted with both the taste and quality.
