Great food, great wine, great story, beautiful atmosphere. I have been here a few time and the food is outstanding. Fish is fresh, beef is from a farm owned by Richard Childress. High end everything! Very unique for a town this small. Lexington is lucky!

A great bistro with a view of the vineyard. Service is excellent. Food is delicious whether it is just a salad, sandwich, or entrée. I recommend the fettuccini and scallops or the fresh salmon and of course WINE.
