It wasn't bad what I ordered but it would be incredible if this were the case since there was barely anything to prepare and thus go wrong. I had three "dishes". While the soup was very good, although maybe a but too spicy for a Broccoli soup, the so called salad and Focaccia were less than basic. If you are... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch consisting of grilled eggplant, sun dried tomato pesto, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, arugula, balsamic vinaigrette on a delicious caramelized onion focaccia. The bread is freshly made at Flying Fig. It is absolutely the best!

We made it a point to make it to this restaurant after seeing Chef Owner Jonathon Sawyer on the Chopped Grilling Championship episode. The guy was a whirlwind of creativity and cooking. What we actually got at the restaurant was a far cry from that. Eggs Benedict were lackluster. Nothing technically wrong with them, but pretty ho-hum. And, my wife's... More

I have to say we were very disappointed with our visit. My daughter got the Ohio brunch burger, medium well. We had to send it back twice because it was rare, both times. We waited forever for our food. I had the open faced BLT, which was very tasty but the egg was hard. My other daughter got the bambino... More

Our waiter took our drink order and within minutes the bartender was outside asking how we wanted one particular drink. Then after we recd the drink he was right back out asking how we liked them. I can't remember the last time that has ever happened. Great service!!!! Oh and the drinks were excellent too.

We were visiting from out of town and really enjoyed a Sunday brunch here. I had the polenta, which was very enjoyable. My friends quite enjoyed their meals as well. They opened at 11 am and seemed to get busy pretty quickly!

This is another fine place for dinner in Ohio City. The menu is varied and interesting and the food and drink are excellent. While it was a bit noisy (what restaurants aren't these days?!), tables were not crammed together. Most impressive was our server, Lynn. She knew exactly when we needed her, and when we didn't. We enjoyed a relaxed... More

Wonderful service and delicious food. We were a large group and we kept having to change our reservation and they could not have been more gracious. When we arrived we were squeezed into a booth (our fault for changing so often) but when a larger space became free they moved us happily. Great beer and wine selection and whilst the... More

Had dinner early on a Friday night. The place was not very crowded when we arrived, but filled up as the evening went on. A creative chef with well prepared food. Special appetizer was an intriguing combination of mozzarella cheese, with tomato, grilled corn and grilled peaches. Flavors were surprisingly compimentary. Scallops with chilled summer veggies was very good. My... More
