“pricey...but fancy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is an amazing place to attend when celebrating an occasion. While the prices are higher than normal, again, it is a great place to take someone out for a special occasion. Not a place to go to on a normal basis, unless you got the cash! Enjoy the desserts.

“Very Eclectic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The atmosphere is not "upscale", but the food was different because the combinations were not the usual. We absolutely loved it. The Basil Granita Margarita was to die for...seriously. Service was fabulous...I would definitely go back the next time I'm in Tucson.

“Not that Amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Was expecting amazing food and a fun upscale atmosphere. Although I had fantastic company and great service, the food was "ok". We ordered the "chefs board", what I expected based on reviews was a mouth watering experience. What I got was passable, not horrible, but certainly not amazing. I'm thinking a trip to any local farmers market could have secured me, much better food, high quality and freshness. In short if offered another chance to dine there, I would pass.

“3 Words: Red. Velvet. Cake.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Food was very good, and service was spectacular, but it is the red velvet cake that merits this 5-star review! The best red velvet cake I have ever had! Dinner was unique and flavorful, the service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was great for a date night. Portions are large, so remember to save room for dessert! I would even return just for dessert and coffee anytime!

“Great meal and service, worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

I very much enjoyed the Crispy Salmon a nicely prepared and presented dinner. The textures and flavors were great. I would love to come back more to try some of the other things on the menu. Everyone was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
