We stop for lunch or dinner every time we pass thru Macon. They have a nice selection of wines including the Vouvray we had last week. The Back Burner gets 4 stars in Moe's Dining Guide.

We arrived with reservations no wait as expected. Limited menu (no snails) but all entrees and appetizers were very good service excellent. A good evening on a holiday for all of us.

Excellent French bistro frequented by Maconites and a few visitors in the know. The new owners are even more talented than the original owners! Every item on the menu has been excellent and the portions are good size. You don't leave hungry, 5/5. Service: Friendly, helpful, and can be a little slower at busy hours, 4.5-5/5. Decor: Attractive small but... More

Visited several times before and Jason is great, food is good as well. Service this time with another server was less than desireable, not seated where we were told we would be. After waiting on several occasions for attention was lectured by another server in a very unprofessional manner. If not for anticipating a good meal we would have paid... More

Uggghhh..well, the service was good and the staff is friendly and the ambience is nice. But then there is the meal. Steak was awful. Supposed to be NY Strip..not sure what it was...bland. My husband's salmon was also bland but he liked the risotto. Dessert was mediocre, at best. We did like the scallop and crab cake appetizers. Should have... More

The good is always wonderfully prepared and the service is top notch. This was our third visit and it never disappoints. I had the sea bass which was amazing and my husband had the prime... More

Fell in love with the family own quint little spot. The food was heavenly and the service was impeccable. Prepared with love and perfection! Parking could be a challenge if it were to be a busy night. It's tucked away in a little corner, still easy to find though. All and all it was a wonderful experience and I hope... More

Cute little place with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor was unavailable on the cold December night we were there, but the inside is quaint and was decorated very festively for the holidays. The wine list is extensive and moderately priced, and the menu is fun and creative. We had a seafood trip and osso buco for mains and lobster... More

So glad I looked on TA to find this great place! It was just a really pleasant atmosphere - kind of fine dining with a slightly more casual vibe. We did apps, entrees, and desserts and loved everything. You definitely need reservations, at least on the weekend. Some were getting turned away on the Friday evening we were there. Would... More
