“Great food with a neat atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten in the lounge area a few times now, and the food here is really good. The atmosphere is what keeps me coming back, though. It's swanky like a '40's theater lobby, only modern. There's not many places like this around. You can tell they put a lot of money into it. It's one of my top picks in Fort Smith.

“Great atmosphere but food has gone downhill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

This place is a boon for Fort Smith. It has a chic, sophisticated atmosphere, and an excellent side room for private parties. I have been there several times. However, they lost their executive chef in November and you can really tell that the kitchen/food is not being run by a professional. We had nine diners(all professionals in our party, and four had to send their food back because it was burned. The "flatbread" pizza on the menu, which used to actually be served on a genuine flatbread, is now on a thick, round pizza disk with skimpy sauce and toppings (not to mention burned). We waited forever for food that was not edible for nearly half our group. Our waitress was a 20-something girl who spent more time standing around talking to another waiter than waiting on our tables. She could have made a much higher tip if she had actually waited on us, and the place wasn't that busy.We had to ask two other servers for more drinks, and one friend was so annoyed at the bad service, she didn't leave a tip at all. There is an older male waiter who is very attentive, and he actually waited on us the most. The bar area is very nice and the bartenders are prompt, and the front desk host/hostesses are very pleasant. It's too bad about the food, but my group is now only agreeable to meeting there for drinks and then moving elsewhere for dinner service.

“Great atmosphere and food variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

A friend and I went there Saturday night because we had never been there and read good things about it. We were not disappointed!! The atmosphere and decor is neat and they have done a great job with the place! The menu is varied with lots of entrees that you don't find in most locations and that was appealing to us. We had the quail and the stuffed peppers and both were awesome!! Prices are a little on the high side but I would consider this more of an upscale eating experience than the normal restaurant. And that is exactly what we were looking for! The staff was very attentive and friendly and the chef even visited with us for several minutes. Definitely will go back again!!
