The food is ok, Jill the server is rude and condescending, the bartender is inattentive and rude also. I felt unwelcome and unwanted at this establishment. Over all a very poor experience. Won't be returning to this place. If you do go, make sure to...More

Great tapas styled menu and excellent wine selection make for a great dinner reservation that is close to uptown and a great location w/in Charlotte's Elizabeth Neighborhood. Never disappointing and always offering great service for a quiet + relaxing dinner. If ever asked by folks...More
