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.

Always good and this visit was no exception!! Eclectic Italian inspired menu. Everything was good. Small but adequate bar with a shops selection. Highly highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

This great restaurant is across street from Southern Hotel. We ducked in to get out of sudden rain storm. Enjoyed fabulous corn chowder, good drink from bar and great atmosphere. Loved it!

Personally, I would go across the street to Ox Lot 9 in the Southern Hotel for better food and atmosphere for a comparable price.

The restaurant has recently expanded giving even more room to enjoy the delicious food. Service, as always, is impeccable. The white bean puree is divine and great for sharing. The luncheon salads are a great size too. Gem in downtown Covington.

While dinner is amazing, this is the perfect girl's lunch venue! The fresh fruit martinis are amazing and white bean hummus is a must! Be sure to make a reservation for dinner as it fills up. The dishes are not too heavy and perfectly portioned. One of my favorite restaurants in my home town and stacks up well against any... More

Went with my family. Our waiter was nice and personable. We ordered the caprese, pate, and white bean and artichoke for the antipasto. The pâté was good. The caprese was the best of the three though. I had the short ribs. Very good. My honey had the special, a halibut dish with mussels. He prefers his fish a little on... More
