Reviewed February 17, 2012

Loved the clams and shaken drinks. Good wine list. Service slowed down once it got crowded but very friendly.

“Made us feel like local regulars on our first visit”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Our neighbors at our vacation condo were raving about this place as they are friends with the owner (Jim Lippi also owner of Ivano's across the street) . This is why we began here for our New Years Eve "pub crawl" around downtown Sandpoint. We arrived early (around 5:30pm) and sat at the bar... They were obviously getting ready for a big night with a fixed menu. This did not stop bartender Rob from being friendly and attentive. Rob is an experience resort bartender and knows the ropes. He even upgraded our wine choice although I forget why. Local musician (and luthier) Joel Shoemaker sat and struck up a conversation with us as well which immediately made us feel a part of the community. We had three small plates while there, the artisan, marinated olives and smoked steelhead with rye and goat cheese... The smoked steelhead was absolutely the BEST i've ever had. I asked if it was smoked locally so I could find some to take home and was surprised to hear it was smoked daily on the premises! We reluctantly left after an hour to our next destination fully satisfied but we promised Joel we would return to hear him play, which we did about three hours later... Rob noticed us walk in and and greeted us like old friends. We found our way to a cozy room with comfortable seating where we listened to the live music, drank more wine (the waitress already knew what we'd had earlier), and finished it off with a wonderful americano and their "something chocolate" dessert choice. Rob checked in on us from the bar, Joel stopped over to say hi and thank us for coming back after his set... it was the perfect end to 2011.

“Try Everything on the Menu”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

With the tapas sized servings, sample a bite of everything, then order more of the things you likes best. Food comes to the table as it is done, not all at once, which makes it perfect for passing and sharing. Our group loved the chicken, was crazy for the polenta with broccolini, thought the brussels sprouts and the cauliflower were a hit, and raved about the clams. There is also a cool little bar up front serving specialty martinis, cocktails and wine. Bring a group and stay a while.
