“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

This new restaurant in Tryon is very nicely done, lots of atmosphere, in a newly renovated building. Could be a wonderful place to eat or go for a drink. Had dinner with a friend, and to say the least, everything was terrible. Our server was not well informed about the wine choices, but we still made a good choice on our own. When he brought the wine, he opened the bottle but did not pour the wine - he just walked away. We ordered the ravioli which was bland and had a weird pumpkin sauce. The zuchini and squash veggie side was overcooked and mushy. We had the stuffed flounder which was also bland. The whole experience was very disappointing. Will not go back again.

“Fun place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

My husband and I had a most enjoyable light lunch in this relatively new restaurant
in Tryon. The interior was charming- a creatively renovated space with high
ceilings, exposed brick and lots of glass. Bright and cheerful. The service was
attentive and friendly and our meal was very good. I had a bowl of delicious seafood soup
with a hint of curry... lots of seafood bits, and excellent flavor. My husband had the french
onion soup and he liked it, too. We both had the house salad- which was mixed greens
with a few cranberries tossed in and a tasty dressing. We plan to go back again soon-
probably for dinner next time.
