We went here for our anniversary dinner. We had a reservation, but arrived an hour early to try their wine tasting experience. This actually did take most of an hour although you could certainly do it faster. As for the wine tasting, they have two menus for each month. One is called the basic tasting and costs $7 pp. You get eight different one ounce classes and they do a good job of explaining what each wine is all about. The second tasting is their "Lux" version. Basically their more quality wines. This costs $12 pp and again you get eight varieties. My wife got one and I got the other so we could try them all. In a couple of cases the wines overlapped and our server (Samantha - she was excellent!!!) allowed us to switch out for other choices. From there it was to dinner. I had the crab and lobster bisque - very good but almost too much stuff with the broth. Not quite enough sherry but I would get it again. From there I had the crab cakes for dinner. They were excellent with lots of crab and perfectly cooked. My wife had the lettuce wraps- one of her favorite dishes- and was very happy. Our service was excellent as well. Overall it was an excellent experience and we plan on returning with friends in tow to try out the monthly wine tasting.

Very surprised by the great service and extremely knowledgeable staff. As a group we tried their Lux Wine Tasting. Highly recommend it. It even came with a gourmet dessert and was inexpensive. Dinner after was truly amazing. The portions are excellent sized and the quality of what they offered was top notch. Out of the 8 people we were with everyone had something different and no one had any complaints and all made reservations to bring others back the following week. Highly recommend the gnocchi carbonara.

We have been going here ever since the Tampa location opened. Every meal I have had there has been very good. The pretzel bread they serve with the meal is reason enough to go. If you go, you need to try the pork belly nachos as an appetizer.

This place was a perfect balance between classy chic & fashionably mod. The food was amazing and the wine is outstanding. We took clients here and they requested we take them to the same place again.
