We have stayed in their cottage for an anniversary, eaten at their 506 Restaurant, used the Spa and never been disappointed. The service is fabulous and the food is exquisite. A special place for a special memory. We keep coming back here to enjoy all of their services.

My friends and I fell in love with this upscale restaurant with very reasonable prices. The gourmet food,service and ambiance were wonderful. The chef comes out to answer questions personally about the food preparation beforehand and returns later for our reviews. This restaurant is a JEM.

There were five ladies in our lunch group and we were able to eat and talk and hear each other as well as lovely, soft music. We all found something we liked to eat prepared in a different way and were very impressed - not only with the food, but the service was outstanding!!!!

We discovered this neat little place about a year ago and can't quit raving about it. The atmosphere is relaxing, the servers are friendly as well as timely, and the food hasn't once failed to be less than wonderful. So happy to have an independently owned, upscale venue close to home. *Pairs well with a visit to Theater Arlington.

I like more of a down home cooking - I had a hard time finding anything I would like to eat. I know others at the table had a hard time also

I love this place for a special luncheon. It never fails to be just what we expect. The only problem is that the tables are crowded in very close.

Amazing food and service in this quaint little dining room. Have never been disappointed! Even sharing a few appetizers instead of main courses is allowed and encouraged!
