I had dinner here recently with a large group; there were about 25 of us celebrating a birthday. The service and food were great. Their wine parings are very good. I recommend you try this restaurant for a pleasant experience.

We went there with our son, daughter-in-law and her parents, and we had a delightful time. The service, ambiance, wine selections, and food were all too flight and we recommend them without reservation. (Uh, you should have a reservation, I meant...., never mind.) :)

Went here with friends, based on recommendations from them and another couple. Thanks OpenTable, for the reservations! This place is a gem in the small town of Driftwood. Everything was top notch. The local area and the facility are absolutely gorgeous. The hostesses greeted us with big smiles and seated us 15 minutes before our reservations. Our server was stellar:... More

Well, the setting reminded me of Tuscany and the food and wine were suburb. Great out of the way place to spend a lazy weekend day. You know the place is worth it as we had two helicopters land with prospective diners while we were there.

We dined for lunch with our server,... More

We had a party of 10 and had reservations for the larger party on a Saturday night. I have been here on several occasions but never posted my opinion.
