Locally sourced deliciousness in a quirky intimate setting

Tasty, tasty, tasty. What a fun Friday night experience! Great artwork on the walls, nicely but casually decorated. A choice between bubbly and tap water meant we bought a bottle but that was ok because there weren't a lot of non alcoholic drink choices- some hibiscus tea and fruit juices... read more

Well I was not sure how to rate this restaurant. It is in a rather strange location. When we got there we saw a man passed out in the bushes and 2 people laughing and taking his picture. On a side street in a strange area. We went inside and before I could put my purse down the waitress asked... More

the Stove has a high end menu, the portions are adequate, very little parking and its on the street. I thought the prices were a little high.

One of our favorite restaurants. A bit eclectic? Yes! That is most of the fun! Menu is limited, but some of the best food I have had in a restaurant. Cooking classes are a blast too! We have never had staff issues as some have mentioned, and not sure what other folks have encountered, but Kim and her counterparts have... More

Very surprising but nice place, the chief is very inventive and all cooking is very very sweet but spicy. Thank you for all we tasted in this restaurant during our three visits

I've been a fan of Sidney's since the old Dumbwaiter days. He never fails to serve up something special. You won't find this kind of food anywhere else. Like his decor, his food is eclectic and off the beaten path!

After a good friend and her family celebrated her birthday at Stove in late January, I called to inquire about reservations for Valentine's. Until the night of the event, looked forward to it as I had made the reservations as a surprise for my husband. The afternoon of the reservation, someone called to confirm we were coming. Had a great... More

Went here for the first time and no thoughts on what to expect. I did look at the menu online and had somewhat of an idea of the food offerings. Which I highly recommend you do prior to going. The menu at the restaurant is limited and in my opinion relies way to heavily on Goat Cheese and seems there... More

Went with friends to dine. Made reservations and had an enjoyable meal. There was no problem in the food itself. Stove utilizes local foods and does a phenomenal job incorporating it into their menu and making limited foods very appealing. My review is rated as such due to the staff. In the course of my time there, the party I... More

Great and knowledgeable service, but catering to one distinctive palate..spicy. If you like heavily seasoned; intense spicy southern food you'll probably love the dishes. Limited menu. However, the best grits I have ever had the pleasure of eating.
