“Unexpected Spot”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

My hubby and I were driving around looking for a place to eat and I had seen this restaurant on trip adviser. We decided to look at the menu before eating. We had arrived 10 minutes before they started serving dinner. However, the manager didn't blink an eye. It was a limited menu and pricey. I got the pan roasted chicken and hubby got grilled scallops. Funny to say but the chicken was exceptionally good. Hubby loved his scallops. If you want large portions, however, this may not be the place for you. They actually serve the amount of food you SHOULD be eating per meal instead of way too much food to eat at one sitting. All in all it was pricey but very good. We didn't get any alcoholic beverages, and yet it cost, for 2 people $72. It would have been about $60, but hubby had a bowl of shrimp bisque for $12. Also salads run about $8 to $10.

“A little disappointed.”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The hotel staff recommended this "fine dining" restaurant and it was within walking distance of the hotel. We dined on a Friday evening and were immediately seated although the restaurant was busy and we had no reservation. The host was pleasant and efficient. The menu contained a good selection of entrees at reasonable prices. All the servers seemed to have more tables than they could effectively serve, which made service very slow. The food quality was very average and I've had better meals for less money. We shared the soft chocolate cake dessert and it was the best part of the dining experience. All in all a very average dining experience.

“OMG!!! My compliments to the Chef!!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

The food was delicious!! I must say, the food was the best part of the evening. The service could have been a tremendous amount better, but the taste of the food made up for it.

“Top restaurant in Knoxville”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

If there would be a Michelin guide assessment it would get the Bib Gourmand. The cuisine has a very high standard. Everything was cooked to perfection. The menu is also creative. The wine list is very good. I will be back here definitely.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

I was staying next door at the Marriott Courtyard and happened upon this jewel on a walk. The food was excellent. I had chicken confit. My waiter was very friendly, and the ambiance was very pleasant
