I've eaten here twice so my review will be a combination of both experiences. The first time I dined here at the end of May 2012 as a solo diner and the other was in July 2012 with two other colleagues.
The restaurant is located in an upscale area, but it is a bit hidden in the back of the shopping center. There was plenty of parking both times I came through. There is an outdoor patio as well as the indoor dining room and bar. I was greeted promptly both times by a hostess and taken to spots in the dining room. My first server was very good. He was courteous and checked in on my often, but not too often. He was a great server, even with me being a solo diner. The second time, our server was distracted by a very loud and obnoxious group of men and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt based on the fact that the group of 10 all asked for separate checks and were very demanding.
The first time I was here, I selected a beef filet with the onion rings and a glass of pinot noir. The wine selection is a bit small but the prices are good, roughly $10 a glass. The bread basket had some tasty selections and took the edge off while waiting for my meal. The filet was very good, cooked a perfect medium rare. And the onion rings are fantastic. I eat onion rings whenever I see them on a menu and these are in the top 5 for me. They were so good that I ordered them again when I returned here in July. This time, I ordered the beef medallions. The beef was slightly overcooked this time but the onion rings were still very tasty.
The second visit wasn't quite as good as the first, partly due to the inattention of the server and partly because I just didn't enjoy the medallions as much as the filet. The atmosphere is nice, either for business dinners or for a dressed-up date night. The food is pretty good, ranging from $15-30 for an entree. The restaurant is open until 10 however, so don't make it too late of a dinner. However, whenever I return to the Vinings area of Atlanta, I would more than likely return here.
