This is a fun place to go with a group or as a couple. They have so many martini and drink recipes to choose from. It is fun to keep trying different ones. The dessert ones are my favorite to experiment with. We don't care for the finger foods that they offer for hors d'oeuvres when you have a party.... More

Came in on a weeknight and was told that the couches were reserved. No one was there or ever came in to sit there. The person who greeted us was not very friends so we had one drink and left. Went to the bat across the street

Obviously trying to capitalize on the martini bar trend. Wine selection is weak, drinks sort of pricey, and slow service. Food tasted frozen, nothing great Nothing special and I feel they would be out of business if they werent right across from the best restaurant around.

I had pre dinner cocktails here and the drink menu is large and varied. Its in an older historic area with lots of charm. Only drawback was it seemed like the bathroom was not clean and had an unclean smell. Sorry to have to say that because i really liked the rest of the place.

Really enjoyed the casual atmosphere even though it seems more shiek. Good drinks served by good people.

After wandering some of the interesting Richmond shops, we came here for an early tapas dinner and a martini. We arrived at 4:45 as they were in process of opening for the evening. We were warmly welcomed, served in an efficient and friendly way and enjoyed our selections. Loved the pear-tini, a few warm tapas and the flatbread. For dessert,... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time this weekend with another couple. We ordered a round of drinks to start and they were very strong but good. She gave us 3 menus, said she was going to get another then never came back. We placed our order for 3 appetizers and 4 plates to share (which the waitress said... More

Do NOT eat here!!! We had the fondue "for two". Not enough food and the oil was barely got enough to cook the meat. My sister had a dish which came with potatoes & they were raw. Service was mediocre. I would say go for the drinks,but even those were not great. Went there for my son's 21st birthday, was... More

If you want a Hawaiian punch martini go to this place. IF you don't like what they serve she brings her telephone out and calls the Richmond police on you. I would stay away from any establishments in Richmond, IL!
