I could write a book about this place. Never had bad food or service. This place rivals the best restaurants in Dallas . It's not inexpensive, but it's worth every penny. Extensive wine list, and the waiter was very helpful on making selections. Menu selections imaginative and beautifully presented. Been coming for 10 years and have not been disappointed yet.

This restaurant is housed in a relatively historic building somewhat inside a shop with unusual and antiques. the food is excellent. White table clothes, great service. It is good for couples, family (without small children), friends and business or even solo

Such a cool restaurant. Great ambiance. We had a group of 4 and all ordered different things. We loved all of them. My blackened mahi-mahi with mango, poblano salsa was great. Had some great wine. Followed my dessert (bread pudding and chocolate cake). We enjoyed the bread pudding, but I am a chocolate connoisseur and the cake was to die... More

Great customer service in an interesting setting in downtown Bryan. Food that comes out is very well prepared - my only complaint is there are only a handful of items on the menu. Two salad choices, two beef choices, two seafood.... you get the picture. Just check the menu before you go and if you are in the mood for... More

I ate here twice while in town and both meals were wonderful! Service was good and the food excellent! I had the crab cake which was amazing and soup and sandwich the other visit! We could not decide on dessert so we shared the sampler . . . wow they were all wonderful but the bread pudding was our favorite.... More

I ordered the tenderloin with the chocolate and coffee bean rub. It was flavorful and could be cut with a fork. Friends shared bites of their duck (perfectly prepared), stuffed chicken (delicious), and Hawaiian sea bass (my mouth is watering just thinking about it). This has always been a great restaurant in a neat setting.

The food is gourmet, the service is very good, and the atmosphere is quiet & interesting. The furniture/clothing/jewelry/home shop, in the same building, is both unique, and high quality. To go there, is a fun, and entertaining experience.

We came here to celebrate a birthday. The tomato bisque soup is divine! Creamy and full of flavor. I had the seasonal special, sea bass. Oh that was amazing! The fish is sweet, succulent, flaky. It was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Another person ordered the sea scallops and they were also delicious. I would say the sea bass had a bit more... More

This place is nestled in one of the most unique, must shop, shops in Bryan! It's a little pricey but every single thing I've had has been amazing!
