Dinner time

Great little place, great food. The calamari was really really good, get it if you go. Also, even though we didn't get them, we saw the oyster sliders looked very good and many people around us got them. The tenderloin was tender as can be and the sea bass was cooked perfectly. Dress nice.

A foodies dream in Greensboro. Top notch presentation and ingredients matched with 5 star service. Interesting decor and not what one pictures when you think of fine dining. NC grouper with lump crab cake was perfectly prepared and everyone at dinner commented on how artistic the presentation of the meals was. Will definitely return, especially for business dinners. Good wine... More

Across the board great experience: excellent service (Damian was friendly & provided great food & wine recommendations), wine list is broad with superb choices from a variety of regions, food is flavorful with intriguingly creative presentations. Nothing in GSO compares for fine dining. For casual dining, don't miss Crafted, the Art of the Taco - the authoritative purveyor of gourmet... More

Simply fantastic. Some of the best food we've had (was in town with son for swim meet) in the country. Didn't love atmosphere, decor (felt like NY when we were in NC), service was good, not amazing, felt as if weren't quite as important as not large party and one of us wasn't drinking. That said I WILL give a... More

I'll start with the one downside. This is the noisiest restaurant that I have ever been in, so this is a hearing aid alert for all! Having said that, the food was excellent, and if possible, the wine was even better. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating, the chef visited our table and there was no wait for a... More

What an amazing place. The food was simply outstanding! I had a cucumber ahi tuna role that was perfect, followed by the scallops and lobster medallion. That was unbelievable. Also if you like Old Fashions, this is the place to go. I've been to London where cocktail making is an art and I have never had a better Old Fashion... More

If presentation ranked superior to taste we would highly recommend this venue, but unfortunately, looks can be deceiving. For a restaurant with such a high overall rating and whose specialty is seafood (or at least that's what their name says) it didn't deliver. All of our seafood entrees were overcooked (Mahi, Flounder and Grouper). The service was good, but didm;t... More

Amazing menu, everything I've tried has been fantastic. Service is also great - last time we went, a rowdy group sat next to us (which isn't a big deal) but, without saying a word, our server gave us free dessert as an apology. Without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Greensboro.
