The food here was incredibly disappointing. I was served “waygu beef” that was less than average sirloin. Not tender not flavorful! My wife’s lobster was poor, it was off. The second drink I was served was not what I ordered and when I called them out they fixed it. I felt like they were just seeing if I could tell the difference!

Run, do not walk, to this amazing gem of a restaurant!

We had a tasting menu for lunch and every dish was a delicious surprise with many layers of flavor that kept surprising you: grits with egg and parmesan first hit the mouth feel of parmesan and then smokiness of bacon, and then the richness of egg yolk. Smoked duck breast was smoked just right and grilled pineapple added just the right sweetness. Dessert of chocolate soufflé was crusty on the top with heavenly melted hot chocolate below; minty ice cream was a perfect palate cleanser between the bites.

All this deliciousness was a bargain at $70 for 5 course tasting lunch!

Service was attentive, wine choice good. Restaurant is pretty.

Go!

We were here a year ago and were just as pleased. Very sophisticated, but unstressed ambience. Much like a michelin starred place...still not sure what keeps it from getting one. Waitstaff all very attentive. Prices correct for this quality standard. Wine list has good.mix of top notch appelations as well as less expensive choices
We had sea urchins with angelhair pasta, lobster, squash soup, lobster ravioli and chocolate soufflee for dessert. Everything was well paced and served correctly and attentively . Really a super place for a consistently great restaurant experience.
