“Telephone reservation (F) Food and Service (A)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Our first experience. Almost changed our minds about going when the person who answered the phone wanted us to arrive 30 minutes earlier than we'd wanted to (5:30 p.m.) because "the table is committed at 7:30 p.m". Nice welcome, eh? NOT.

Food and wine were outstanding. Calamari was excellent. Scallops earned a B+. Loved the pinot noir recommendation.

Fire the person who answers the phone and this place would earn the top marks.

“A Focus on Wine and then Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Loved the restaurant in Columbia, MD and was excited to learn that they were opening up a branch in Warrenton. Although the quality of food is consistent with that served in MD, the selection of wines has been less so. Still to have an establishment that has a wine bar and qualitaive food in the area is indeed a plus.

“Down a notch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

We've been here several times and it feels like its slipping. Upfront, let me say that it has very good food, super atmosphere, and great wait staff. But...it's not up to the prices of the place and that's a detractor. I'd like to see a few more choices on the menus and more seasoning in the food, all our dishes were just ok. The atmosphere is great, but we didn't get a wine menu unless you asked and the wine taps had to be explained after asking twice, odd. Overall, it's a great place, but at $30-$50 an entree, it needs to be better.

“Excellent food...the creme brulee is top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I visited for the first time when my date recommended this place. I never heard of, or even knew of its existence. The location is away from Columbia's main routes and can easily be missed if not paying attention. The restaurant is very small but cozy. The server was very knowledgeable about the wines and gave great recommendations based on our different tastebuds. The food was excellent but I most enjoyed the creme brulee. Oh my goodness. It was better than the ones I tried in Paris. I hope to revisit soon.

“Great place for food, wine and friends!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

No better place for an evening with friends...the food is imaginative and fun, the wine selection is superb, and the atmosphere welcoming. Love the gas fireplace in the winter, and the wine tastings and special dinners.
