Came here for dinner and was able to get in without a reservation. Mussels were amazing and the cheese plate was superb. Food is presented well. Excellent blackberry crisp dessert - I will talk about that for weeks back home. Server was friendly. All around a great evening.

Nice little restaurant located in a great area of downtown Asheville. Parking garage is nearby for easy accessibility. Limited bar space but nice selection of bourbons and whiskey. The menu was not large but entrees were excellent. The menu leaned towards "healthy" items to choose from. All in all, a nice experience at a reasonable price-point.

The food was very good, had the specials of the day for appetizer and main course. Beautiful decor. They had live music playing in the front which we could hear from our table near the windows but it did not interfere with conversation. Our server gave excellent advice on wines and food choices. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for... More

This restaurant is on Wall St which is very cute and is in-between two major streets. Instead of an alley feel, it's been filled with restaurants and shops. Very nice. We sat outside to enjoy the fresh air and ambience of the street for dinner. All items ordered were delicious. Recommend highly.

We stopped by on a Friday evening for dinner due to the great reviews. The hostess seated us right away which was nice, but we were only the second table seated at 6:00pm which should have been an indication of what was to come. Our server paid us minimal attention and our food took 45 minutes to prepare and was... More

My husband and I ducked in here for a late dinner. We sat at the back bar where a small band was playing live music. It was a nice, cozy setting. We shared the charcuterie plate which was good, and the lamb pappardelle, also good but the fresh pasta was a bit thick. Overall a nice meal.

Lovely two-level space on Wall Street, which is a very cute street full of restaurants and shops. Casual-elegant kind of a vibe. I had an old-fashioned made with bacon-infused Bourbon and maple something or other. Pretty good - the bacon flavor was subtle. I had two small plates, which were a little too similar (my fault, I ordered them!) First... More

technically all the ingredients are there. just no spark. tomato sauce with the scallops was muddy. cheese grits had good texture but no significantly cheesy flavor. scallops had a bit of a crust but not enough. eggs benton had changed the hollandaise out for more of the muddy tomato sauce. only one of the two grit cakes was sauced-not sure...
