“Omg foodgasim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

The food here was like heaven will be. I had the Edamame light fried in a sesame sirrachi sauce that had just the right amount of heat not to hot, then the caprese salad which was fresh and crisp, they used a cherry balsamic and garlic olive oil from fat Louie's olive oils yum, ended with a mushroom strudel which was like nothing I had ever had. My taste buds were happy. I had a drink made with their own vodka smooth, the drink was dazed and confused and it would be easy to get that way fast with a drink so good. Service was excellent. Price was affordable .

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We decided to go here for lunch because we wanted the fried mac & cheese balls. Once there we found they had been taken off the menu. We waited to be seated (as did three other parties) and it took over 10 minutes for someone to come greet us and take our name. All 15 of us were just standing in front waiting. The host wasn't very friendly or apologetic when he told us it would be another 15 or more to be seated. We won't be going back. There are plenty of other delicious places to eat with more affordable food and great service.

Laura, our server, was very knowledgable and friendly. The food was delicious and the wine was refreshing. This place is a "must go to" in door county.

“wow bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This was such a gorgeous restaurant we looked forward to eating here. When we arrived there were about 4 tables and we waited and waited to get seated. The staff glanced at us but not one said hello, we will be right with you. Finally after 10 min. we were given a table. Sat again, no water, nothing. Finally the bartender came and gave us water and took our drink order. Our waiter was a great guy, young friendly and wanted to do well. However our food was horrible, the garlic mashed potatoes were scoop our of the refrigerator. I had the waiter stick his finger in them and he was appolgetic. He took them into the kitchen and came back without anything saying how can the chef make it right. We asked, what are our choices, he said a couple of things that didn't sound appetizing so we said nothing. The waiter brought our check, yes full price check with 2 $1.00 off coupons for another restaurant they own. ( I guess it was good to know not to go there either) Sad that such a beautiful place won't hire an excellent chef. Our bill with tip was almost a $100.
Since they didn't do anything for us we told a car full of hungry people not to eat here and they left too.
We later asked lots of locals and they all said, no, don't eat there.

This restaurant is fantastic, the pannins and wine are delicious! This place is connected to Door Peninsula Winery and the Door County Distillery! Great food!
