This is the best fine dining restaurant in Athens. Great cocktails. Great wine specials. Good price, $13-$30 entrees. Great service. The only thing that would make it better would be if they changed up the menu a bit more.

The wait staff and kitchen provided a good experience. In a town geared for bar food and pizza this is a good alternative with an interesting flair. It tries to connect with the local growers and producers. It is worth a return visit!
