Awesome, Best Restaurant in Town

IMHO Far and away, the best food in town and certainly the most interesting. Great service too. We went to the Sunday brunch for the first time the other day too. Excellent. If you get chance, go and enjoy. :)

We were seated after a short wait on a Friday night which is good. Server was young but polite and diligent. I ordered the mussels which I now regret. They were small and some of them were fishy tasting. I did not eat the mussels that had not opened which was approximately one half the order. I don't believe it... More

I have visited twice and enjoyed it both times. The breakfast salad is delicious. (I have tried to re-create it but not so successfully.). The atmosphere is way too dark and it makes it frustrating trying to see the food clearly. I had to take a picture so that I can examine it before ate my food. The price is... More

I dined here a year ago and had a horrible experience-from wait staff to bartender to the dining/food. I was hesitant to go back to eat here. I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. The waitress was very informative on menu choices and descriptions. She recommended brussle sprouts and they were delicious-best ever. We had an all around good experience... More

Excellent service and food. I had the seafood boule base it was excellent. My husband had the rib eye special. The char was perfect. We also tried the crab tacquitas and the tater tots - loved both.

We were surprised to find a concept restaurant such as this one in Springfield. The whole idea of local, responsible fare was very appealing to us. We are in the middle of a cross-country trip and stopped in Springfield to see the Lincoln House. Perhaps we expected too much and were disappointed? I think the quality of food was uneven.... More

Ate here with friends tonight. Never had a bad experience yet so decided to get the 6 course chef selection for my meal. For those that don't know you leave it all up to the kitchen and they bring what they select (which turns out to be what no one else wanted that day apparently). Others chose off the menu... More

I had the pleasure of trying the 6 Course Chef's Tasting menu one evening here. One word to describe the experience: Wow. The food was great, it was thrilling to be waiting for the next dish to be served since it was the Chef that decided what to serve next. During my visit I was served: Fried Edamame, Crab Taquitos,...

We went for a couples night out and loved the atmosphere and the food was great. The waitress took care of our party very well. The food presentation was beautiful. They also have a great drink menu.
