Loved the atmosphere although it was a little noisy. Had reservations and they sat us right on time. Server was attentive. There was quite a delay in getting food out, although management did seem to recognize this and provided an extra glass of wine and...More

However Tupelo Grille is ranked, they deserve it. Excellent. Poke appetizer is the best I have ever had. All other was nothing but excellent. Can't say enough. If you want fine dining, be sure to visit the Tupelo Grille.
