“Perfect portions”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

As noted by others, the food and service are exquisite in this elegant but homey small restaurant. Best is that portions are just right. A diner can enjoy a complete dining experience: appetizer , entree, and desert, accompanied by drinks. Yes, it's pricy -- but worth it!

“Amazing Rack of Lamb”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

My wife and I came to fredericksburg for her birthday from Austin. We ordered the shrimp and grilled snails as appetizers and they were good! What really stood out were the racks of lamb as our entrees! Having gone to culinary school and cooking in some top restaurants, I can honestly say the lamb is TOP NOTCH! Perfectly cooked med rare with excellent flavor and very generous portion size! We will definitely be coming back! Very friendly staff, with a great Texas attitude! We really enjoyed our waitress (Sadly, we do not remember her name) and a server named Bernardo, whom we talked with for a bit!! Thanks for an excellent dining experience!!

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Dining here felt like dining in someone's home. The town had been very crowded all day, but the atmosphere at the restaurant was calm and tranquil, even though it was quite full. The food was excellent, as was the service.

“Nice Enough”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

The little house was cute, a bit homey. Food was good, not exceptional, especially at the price point. Do NOT sit in the bar area, ask for a table by a window in the front. Shockingly, a small well vodka tonic was $10. NO Texas wines on wine list – a big disappointment in "wine country", especially for those of us who CAME to Fredericksburg to visit wineries. List was a bit overpriced, but had some decent California selections. Waiter was good, courteous, informed. Front of the house a bit sloppy – know the chef is a CIA grad, expected better.

“June 2014 F-burg Trip”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

WHAT a find! Spectacular service, supreme food, and very pleasant setting! The appetizer was a cucumber soup - YUM! My wife had pan-seared sea scallops and I had stuffed salmon fillet. The food was to die for! After hitting a local hang-out, we returned for dessert, which was homemade Mexican chocolate ice cream. This place is definitely a return visit kinda place. Be sure to make reservations!
