The white bean and artichoke hummus is a must and as a rule, you can't go wrong with anything you order here - including one of their specialty drinks. Wait staff is also consistently attentive and respectful of the diner - from our perspective. It is a small restaurant which is a blessing and a curse - it allows for... More

I took my wife and my mother-in-law here the other night. We were in the side room which lacks a lot of the character and view that the main dining room has so make sure you request a table appropriately. My wife admittedly ordered something off menu for an appetizer just curious if they could do a cheese plate since... More

The staff was excellent and attended to our every need. The food was delicious! There were passed appetizers to begin with and ended with an assortment of food on the... More

The 3 of us split the Italian salad then had 2 pizzas. We had a pepperoni pizza and the pizza of the day which was prosciutto, tomato, garlic and cheese. Wonderful!!!

love the food, martinis are wonderful and the location is open and light. Parking can be an issue, but that is what you have to deal with in Downtown Covington

We sat outside and it was much quieter and a nice evening out. The food was good, and the mixed drinks were very tasty and refreshing. My husband really likes the liver pate, but it was not for me. But I loved the pork belly and shrimp appetizers! Must try! My pasta was tasty, but a hint too salty. Overall... More

We have been several times. Great as always. Make sure you get a reservation!! We sat at the bar had a few drinks and were sat at our time. As usual the menu was fairly simple but eclectic and very good. We enjoyed the white bean purée, pate, and pork belly and shrimp to start with. Incredible. My wife had... More

For the prices you pay here, I expected much better food. The drinks are overpriced, too. I have to say, though, the service is second to none. We went on White Linen Night for the second year in a row (I've been there a total of 4 times in the past year because of friends) and I was disappointed.

We tried several dishes, all were awesome, the cocktails were superb and the homemade pasta made me want more.
