“Great overall experience”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

What a nice surprise. It’s an old church converted into a restaurant. The prices are on the high side but well worth the overall experience. Great place for couples and families. Its small but we didn’t feel cramped. It was very busy. We were there two hours and there was a constant crowd but they seemed to handle it quite well. The inside is elegant and classy. Not overdone but just right. Great bar atmosphere with excellent service. They were extremely accommodating and professional. The food was excellent. Great bar service with an excellent Manhattan. That is a great indicator of the bartender’s skill. We initially sat at the bar waiting for a table but decided to stay for dinner. The wine list by the bottle was nice with some excellent high-end varietals. Wine by the glass was adequate. Our entrées, scallops and crab stuffed trout were perfect as was the appetizer. The cheesecake is made in house and it’s fantastic. The quality of the coffee was exceptional. My 5-year-old daughter made friends with one of the bartenders and had a great time. She even walked us out at the end of the evening. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It’s great to see a new high-end restaurant come to Old Town. The business has a second floor that hasn’t opened yet. I will assume when this opens this will be one of the hottest spots in the area if they do it right. I am optimistic.

“Great New Place in Manassas”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a must-go for dining out in Manassas. We went with another couple and had an outstanding experieince. The food was fantastic and the service superb. We ordered rock fish, trout, and the pork loin for the main course and everyone at the tabled raved about their food. Excellently prepared and expertly presented by the staff. This restaurant is a keeper! It is situated in an historic church in Old Town. The dining is downstairs and they are remodling the upstairs to be a lounge area. Looks promising. My ONLY (seriously) oops was that it is rather loud, so be prepared to sit close to catch conversations at your table. Our group is already planning the next adventure there. Do call for a reservation as this place fills up quickly.

“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

It's been 35 years since the Presbyterian Church abandoned this building and I have lost count of the restaurants since then -- but this could very well be THE one to make it. Appetizer, main course and dessert were all perfect and the excellent service made everything taste just that much better -- Thanks Brandy!! I should try something different on my next visit, but the seared salmon was so perfectly prepared, it will be difficult not to repeat. Both the owner and chef made stops at our table. Great bar and wine selection as well.

“Excellent”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We have eaten there twice now and both times the food was great and the service was excellent.
Must go and enjoy. The atmosphere is perfect too, for a crowd or a quiet dinner for two.
Love the scallops and the salmon.
