This restaurant was wonderful. The seasonal menu had a variety of offerings, all presented beautifully. James was an outstanding and very attentive waiter. The old bank, repurposed, was artfully converted, and everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves. One tip: get there early!

Pure class. Unique menu. Excellent food. And the service is the best I have ever had at a restaurant. And the atmosphere is intimate. Get there early to get a table.

Very good food, small space though. Wine list is excellent and I can't say enough about the food. Come early in the warmer months as this place fills up fast.

This little restaurant is a gem. It's small, and gets packed, but it's fun, the owner is great, the wine selection is amazing, and the food is fantastic! The menu is creative, and the fish board was varied from fried oysters to the best tuna...More

Quiet, modern, with a wonderful wine selection. The small plates are just the right amount of food, and the cheese, meat snd fish boards are terrific! A 'must'visit.

I can't answer re a menu, but it was ALL GOOD. Great wine choices, and beer, too. Lorain isn't too far--take a drive over and see. My only advice is that 4 is about the largest top tabled that is putting two together... More
