Had dinner here for two. The place was very cute and comfortable. Good wine selection. The wait staff was very friendly and kind. The prosciutto wrapped asparagus was good (the asparagus a little tough, but good). It is a large portion so a good one...More

Dined at this (previously) favorite SC restaurant last year during a winemaker dinner event. My group was not part of the event (and yet they allowed us to make a reservation that same day, so...?) The restaurant was packed and we were seated in the...More
