Wonderful food. Blair our server was extremely knowledgeable and accomodating. Made for a terrific dinner. I live out of the state, but looks like a great neighbor restaurant. Enjoy all!

Friendly staff, chic environment, tasty menu, and cool location. Try this place! You'll like it! I live nearby and mostly go on Sundays for brunch, but evenings are great, too, especially if you're out on a date. :)

I was in town and decided to look for a place with good wine and a bit to eat. I was blown away with this place. Great character, great wine, and even better food. Blew me away. The staff knew wine so well and made great recommendations. Couldn't be happier and can't recommend it enough.

You will not be disappointed here. Interesting, adventurous and quite delicious offerings, in both food, wine and spirits. Friendly, professional and knowledgable staff. Portions are not all that large but presentation, taste and attention to detail make up for that.

Incredible selection of wine, flights are wonderful showcase for their by the glass list. Staff knowledgeable and friendly. Food good to very good with a few opportunities for improvement (homemade fries soggy, not done correctly). Salads, cheese plate very good, Duck Confit Panini absolutely killer. Favorite spot in Ghent.

The atmosphere inside is wonderful as well, a bit bustling and noisy as we happened to arrive on a Monday, Ladies Night. We chose to be seated at the bar, and more's the better for us, as... More
