“Excellent Food”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This gem of a restaurant, mostly frequented only by midtowners is one of the best midtown has to offer. If you don't see it on the menu, just ask...if Cullen has the ingredients, he'll make it for you.

“Great business or pleasure lunch in Midtown Memphis”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is my "go-to" place for lunch as it is convenient to downtown Memphis and Midtown Memphis,too. Their bacon wrapped shrimp in a cream horseradish sauce is to die for! Served in a generous portion with a small side salad, it is perfect for when you want more then a grilled chicken salad. They have daily pizza offerings( although none gluten free) and a daily Kobe beef hot dog which is a wonderful treat. I haven't been disappointed in anything there. I'm sure the evening fare is great,too, but I head home after work !!

“Big Disappointment”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

The interior is nicely done. Michelle is always excellent. The food, however, has been continuously on the decline since Michelle has left the kitchen. This is no longer a special place for us, as it once was. Unfortunately our most recent re-confirmed this. The food service was poorly timed, the steak was rare instead of medium rare and was uneatable. By the time the waitress got around to noticing it, the next course was on its' way. Big disappointment that does not live up to their previous history.

The space has been redone and looks much better. The food remains as good as always. Michelle is a charming host.

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Food was very good. Wine menu was somewhat limited, although a few good picks moderately priced. Had a larger group and could have used a second server to speed things along.
