Great food and service

When we were first seated our server announced he was a cook filling in - and wasn't a great server. How wrong he was! Very accommodating and supremely knowledgable about the food, drinks and even where they sourced their coffee. The food was exceptional as was the experience. Plan to go again... read more

Our server was rude and inattentive. She'd be a better magician with her having mastered the disappearing act. Took 25 minutes just to get drinks. The food is overpriced & mediocre. The sweet potato fries were good but not sure how you can mess that up. It was a 2 hour dining experience which consisted of mostly waiting for our... More

I can't get enough of this place! I have to admit, I was a little "scared" the first time I visited...I heard it was a fusion of Modern Korean and Cajun and was at first hesitant. Since that day, we've probably visited about 50 other times...no kidding. The place is small so MAKE SURE you have a reservation. The service... More

Who would guess that this gem is nestled in a strip shopping center? Amazing. We had the Korean pot roast sliders, Chicken Ssam, & foie gras dumplings. They were delicious. They have an extensive cocktail, wine & beer list. We finished off our meal with cobbler which was blueberry & huckleberry topped with ice cream. Perfect late lunch date on... More

Place is good. Pretty pricey but different so on occasion it's worth it. Give it a try. Great brunch

Everything is perfect about this place - the size of the restaurant, the service/staff, the drinks, the atmosphere, but mostly, it's all about the food. An exceptionally creative menu that changes on a regular basis so you're always exposed to something new and delicious. It's a very 'approachable' place too - which is not a common thing once you've established... More

We tried this based on recommendations, and were so glad we did. It was easily one of the best dining experiences anywhere. They were busy but we found seats at the bar which may have been a blessing in disguise - the bartender was very helpful and truly honest about what dishes he would and would not recommend for us....

Found this unique place on Trip Advisor and it is very near our home! Never knew it was there. We loved it! Food was creative, unique and full of flavor. Service was personal and excellent. We will be back many more times to try all of the dishes - had a hard time narrowing it down on our first visit.... More

This place was awesome. Definitely a unique experience. If you are into different food combinations then you found the right spot. I sat at the bar to get quick seating. Bartender was really jovial. She introduced herself and was very knowledgably about the menu. I would definitely go back here. And recommend trying it.

Cute, unique gem in Potomac Falls! The food is great - the small plates are perfect to share so that you can try so many different things. the bottled beer selection is awesome and every waiter we have had is friendly and attentive. Sitting at the bar has also always been a great experience.
