“A less than pleasant experience.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Did not see a dress code, so we went in wearing golf/casual shirts and shorts/capris. We were promptly shuttled to a side room and forgotten about. A brief conversation with individual at desk at entrance to dining room did lead to a server finding us. We placed our lunch order and received our food in a reasonable time. I understood that the restaurant served smoked food and barbecue, but did not expect my pastrami sandwich to only taste like smoke. Having lived abroad, I am not a fan of "boutique" brews which was all that the restaurant served. Bar staff had a problem understanding that someone might not appreciate their limited selection of beer. Past experiences in better, and even lesser, restaurants involved staff much more interested in providing excellent service and menus with a much wider selection of drinks and food.

“OVERRATED”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Unfriendly bald old men as hosts. First strike. The waitress looked like she just woke up from a nap. We experienced extremely slow service from start to finish. Actually, the waitress was really quick in grabbing our payment at the end, but that's about the fastest we saw her move the entire night. Food was mediocre. I could have cooked a better steak at home. The full rack of lamb was only 4 ribs of meat. The sides were clearly prepped way ahead of time and the cheese on the potato was crusty and tasted like cafeteria food. I'm not sure what all the rave is about. Oh, and it's way over priced. Never going back again. Try Lightfoot or Vintage 50 for better service and food.

“Lovely restaurant with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had a lovely dinner here. Great food and service. We shared an appetizer of fried green tomatoes with burrata and spicy tomato sauce. Then most of the main courses come in two sizes so those with a smaller appetite can chose a smaller portion - what a great idea which cuts down on waste. This left room for a full sized dessert although they do a tasting size portion of this as well. They have a great selection of beers and wines. We loved it even though my husbands lamb was slightly overcooked it didnt spoil the meal.

“just a great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I really like this restaurant and try to go when in Leesburg visiting my children.
Service is attentive and acommadating - bringing out a child's meal (special kid menu) in just a few minutes. Food is excellent and thoughtfully prepared. We often share several appetizers and an entree between 3 of us. Good selection of beers and wines. The fruit napolean is just a great dessert. I've never had a bad meal here!
