“Great food - if you don't mind the wait”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

One of my favs in Annapolis. Menu changes with the seasons but flatbreads always available and excellent. Very good wine list also. Only complaint is they do not take reservations. People will line up get in when they open at 5:30. There is outside seating in the summer which helps. With a very small bar area, it is difficult to wait around for a table and with no defined hostess desk getting on the waiting list can be problematic. On more than one occasion my husband and I have driven by, seen the crowd waiting, then decided to dine elsewhere. Best advice is to go early when they open or late - after 9 pm.

“WOW, WOW, WOW!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you like great wine and great food, this is the place for you! We went on a Wednesday night....it was packed but we got a table right away. We started with a cheese plate....loved all 3 cheeses. Next we tried the crab roll.....yummy! Very different. Next was the skirt steak. If my husband could have licked the plate, he would have. Then our waitress talked us into the butterscotch pudding for dessert. I didn't think I would like it.....not a pudding gal. LOVED it! Our waitress was great.....always there when we needed her but not overbearing. What a wonderful night...wish we could move this place to our town!!!

“Upmarket tapas......fantastic!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We went to this restaurant after doing a little research on tripadvisor. Otherwise there is no way we would have stumbled on it. We had a meal in Annapolis on a previous evening and were so disappointed. This was such a contrast. The food was really tasty. The review has recommended ordering a few plates to share and we did just that. Amazing. Gorgeous food and really good wine. We succumbed to dessert and coffee too. The buzz was great but we were lucky to get a table really quickly (I was prepared for a wait as warned by tripadvisor). This is a great example of the benefits of other people's experience. Definitely give it a try if you're in the area. Our server was so friendly and bubbly. Just a great wee night.
