“You never know what you will get here.”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

You really need to know the menu. Some items are very good and some are awful!! Most of the wait staff are good. The one that has been there quite awhile is very condescending. I will not stay if it appears she is going to be my server. You can ask her opinion on a certain item or wine and you get the same answer every time. " oh this is just terric. Well, I am sorry but there are some items that are awful and if you complain, she takes it very personal.

“intimate, urban-feel setting”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The restaurant is cozy, but we enjoy going here. We've never had to wait for a table. Food/menu is always interesting. From hot dogs to steaks and seafood.

“Great unique entrees and upscale atmosphere.”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This restaurant is one of the best in Moorhead and has a changing unique menu. It also has a martini bar. The only problem is that the restaurant is so small that reservations are almost a must. $$$

“Food is very hit or miss, nice location”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

It is a great little location for a date, anniversary, etc but the food has been very hit or miss in the four times I have been there in the past two years. I do appreciate the very wide variety of prices on the menu and the nice downdown Moorhead location.
