Trip Advisor needs to take them off the list! We drove all the way there for a nice dinner and the parking lot was empty!

On a recent trip to Gainesville I had the pleasure of attending the “Rename” party announcing the new name “The Mix Bistro”. The food and wine pairings were wonderful! I especially loved the Lamb Lollipops and the Ribs. The atmosphere is lively and trendy and...More

My family visited this location on the recommendation of some friends. The food was interesting, and I had some of the best hummus that I have ever had. However, the atmosphere is extremely poor. It is very loud, and this location is laid out on...More

Excellent food, good live music (Fast Lane tonight), cool upper deck indoor bar. Swamphead selections on tap, lots of TVs, wall of whiskey. A nice addition to the Gainesville area and a recent favorite.

I sat outside on a beautiful large couch, lit candles, soft music and great Gainesville weather. The waiter was attentive and the lamp starter was superb. Try the melon martini which has a nice display.
