“Small town surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Expecting great food and service from locals who raved about this bistro like restaurant, we were not disappointed. The chef and very professional staff provided attentive and individualized care, and the food was over the top exceptional. I was intrigued by the menu and clever use of 'southern ' ingredients with an inspired uptake. We wish this restaurant would come south to Tampa where above average ratings are more expected and difficult to find. This is a gem Nashvillians need to notice....

“Outstanding presentation of food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Loved the appetizer, entree and dessert I had. Phenomenal presentation on the entrees and a great waiter made our experience very memorable in this small town.

“Accommodating and worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

We brought a large party in to Lugos to celebrate a birthday and a family reunion. We were greeted warmly and treated graciously. We sampled every appetizer and couldn't decide which we liked better--they were all excellent. My vote was for the mussels, tho the dish should have come with morecbread to soak up all the goodness.

Between the 15 of us I believe we tried almost all the entrees including the specials. They were all prepared perfectly. Everyone from the 2y.o. to the 86 y.o. left full and happy.

The restaurant had an extensive wine list, and, considering they are in a town that does not sell bitters, did a fine job with cocktails.

When we are back in town we will definitely go back.

“Trying to be upscale...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Overpriced. Watched too many cooking chef shows and trying to copy them without doing so...my opinion. Noisy and small portions...give me a meat and three and I'm happy. People around here go there for a "see and be seen" type setting...whoopee!

“Another good recommendation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Very good food. We both had fish dishes - preparation and presentation get an A+. Not far from I-40. When we travel, we like to avoid chain restaurants for dinner. Very obvious owners really care about their customers.
