“Great Food, Quiet Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The restaurant is not large and does not have many tables, but is quiet and intimate. Great Saturday night date spot. We had a reservation but it wasn't needed. Service was good, but not great. Wine list was good, their by the glass wine was Viu Manent, which is excellent. App of goat and bleu cheese puff pastry w/sauce was excellent wine pairing suggestion from server. Steak and duck entrees were VERY good, and Kentucky Derby Pie was definitely the way to finish an excellent meal. Check out their website for a free app coupon.

“Hidden Gem - really hidden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Took a while to find the place, but worth the hunt. First impression was that it was SMALL, only six tables, but nicely appointed. Cons first: Paper on tables during lunch an odd touch for a higher end restaurant (I was half-expecting crayons); Bathrooms literally just a few feet away from diners; Pricey (see below); Only a few wines by glass.

Pros: Service bordered on professional; Limited but thoughtful wine list, which pretty much describes the menu as well; Food was excellent.

As to price, lunch for one (with a glass of wine, tax and tip) ran $27, and was worth it. Even without wine, you are looking at $15 to $20 at lunch, more at dinner.

When in Tyler, don't miss Currents, but make a reservation an plan some extra time to find it.
