Crowded on Friday night - had to wait for 20 mins plus. Wonderful menu, good wine list, cocktails - mac and cheese is to "die for".Small plates are fabulous!

The food isn't as good as it used to be. The attitude of the waitstaff is rude as usual. We were told if we had a suggestion that there suggestion box was across the river. This happens to be where the outhouses are!

Definitely want to come back to this place next time we visit. Known for their small plates. They don't dissapoint. We tried rattlesnake sausage, curry shrimp, bacon wrapped dates, mango crab avocado dip. Everything was outstanding. Topped the evening off with homemade peach pie and ice cream.

Owner copped a HUGE attitude with us. Table was not ready when we got there so we gave him our cell phone number. When it became available he tried calling... except he wrote down the wrong number. We stopped in about 15 minutes after he had called the wrong number just to get a status and he gave us a huge attitude because he kept the table open for us and couldn't get a hold of us. Wasn't our fault. He showed us the number he called... not us.

We were a party of 10 and about to spend some money... first 3 people ordered water to start, with plans to order drinks later. Owner (who was waiting tables as well, and waiting on us) blatantly rolled his eyes at us when the 3rd person ordered water. When the next person ordered a dirty grey goose martini, all of a sudden he became nicer. He made a few rude comments that I can't recall because it has been a few months, just remember they were extremely rude... to the point where we considered leaving.

But then the food came out... and blew us away. I can't believe this place is in Salida, CO. It may as well have been in any trendy neighborhood in Manhattan. The food was insanely good. Best kale salad i have ever had in my life, hands down. Every dish was so different, so many different flavors, great presentation, just hands down AMAZING. It made us forget that the owner was a jerk to us for the first 15 minutes. It was a Saturday night so I understand his frustration with keeping a table open when there is money to be made, but again, not our fault.

I highly recommend going to this place because the food is awesome, but when you request a table, make sure it's not the owner who will be waiting on you!
