“Want attitude??? Go here.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Came here on a rainy cold day,and it had stopped raining about 45 mins. before . We came around 6 and wanted to be outside. Told hostess that we were ordering drinks and some appetizers and we would be out by 7.

Because we were not ordering dinner, she refused to seat us outdoors,notwithstanding that only two of the 10+ tables outdoors were occupied. She told us that all the tables were reserved. But guess what, no one ever came for any of the tables, and the folks at the two occupied tables even left!!! When we questioned how it was that every table was empty (as were most of the tables indoors), as we were leaving, the hostess said it was their "policy", admitting that she lied to us when she said she was "expecting" people to come for all the outside tables. Guess their "policy" is to lie to their customers. Can you then trust them when they say it is "hormone free " or "Berkshire" pork. Stay far away!

“Add it to your list of Must Try!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We tried this on the enthusiastic review of our bartender at the hotel. We've walked by it many times but never stopped so on a Friday night we gave it a whirl.
Disappointed that my first choice ($$$) in wine as sold out, and wasn't thrilled with the only other type they had.
Our waiter was excellent and a lot of fun. Meals had no compliants - a nice serving amount - quality over quantity.. Both had the spring roll appetizers. MBH had the Rabbit Torchon while I had the Brasstown tenderloins. Both delicious. Best part was dessert with the sorbet of belgium chocolate. OMG.
We will definitely be back to try more variations!

“Unique food!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The food was fresh with interesting combinations that went very well together. I started with mussels & had gnocchi as my meal and it was the perfect amount of food! The drink menu is as fun and unique as the food menu :)
