    Wonderful variety of dishes cooked to perfection. Nowhere in the area comes close. Our server, Wayne, was spectacular. It was an amazing experience that we will continually return for.

    Outstanding service as always. Good wine list as well. The chefs specials were on point as always, and I enjoyed being able to try meats that I had never had before. The ostrich and kangaroo were both quite good and I can’t wait to return to see what else the chef has up his sleeve.

    First time to try. Food was very good. Only complaint was filet and duck were over cooked. Lamb was wonderful. Ambiance was very lacking. Lighting and harsh tile.

    We happened upon the Tasting Room in a spur of the moment decision, and we are glad that we did. The small portion tasting concept was well executed, unique and lots of fun. There is clearly a lot of talent in the kitchen. Wayne, our server, was very experienced, and his service complemented the excellent cuisine. As you might expect from a restaurant with a wine focus, the wine selection was very good. Notable dishes included the lamb (we wish we had ordered a full size of that one), the grilled quail appetizer and mahi mahi. The side dishes, particularly, the cabbage were well executed and fresh. We will definitely be back when we are in the area.

    This is my third time to go for the monthly wine tasting event and it was awesome! Also had dinner and it was incredible! I had the lamb, quail and duck tastings with cheesy grits and carrots, finished up with bananas foster for dessert. Love this unique dining experience!

    Excellent food! Wait staff was attentive and recommendations were on point. The ambiance/decor is lacking but If given the choice between ambiance and wonderful food, the food will win every time. Best lamb chops I’ve ever eaten and the Bananas Foster was amazing.

    Going on a weekday, we avoided any crowds but was a bit surprised there was nobody there. Another 2-person party did come in, but we basically had the place to ourselves. We got seated right away and our server Cheyanne was attentive and knowledgeable. We got a shareable appetizer, different salads, entrees, and desserts. Everything tasted good and came out appropriately and wasn’t rushed. The food was great! Best food in Smyrna! The service was fantastic! The building is, for a lack of a better way to say it, used. The location is the old Omni Hut- the Polynesian landmark built back in the 60’s. The new owners have removed much of the old Tiki-hut decor, but feels a little like lipstick on a pig. The ambience does not match the food. With a little more work, it can work itself out though. It’s a pretty useable place with options for seating and entertaining larger events- which we were informed about. The need to get the old Omni Hut sign down and make a few interior changes. It’s pretty sterile and lacks character. It has so much possibility.

    We were really excited to go to the tasting room for our first anniversary. For the price, the tasting portion were tiny. Kind of like a restaurant that’s just trying to be fancy but not providing a great value to their customers. Clearly some of the decorations are left over from Omni Hut. The hostess was on her phone when we came in. Bad look for a restaurant with that kind of pricing. 10 out of 10 will not be back. I’d rather go spend more at a restaurant like etc. in green hills.

    This is not my first time to eat here and it definitely won’t be my last. The restaurant feels like a welcoming dining room in Amalfi with the amazing wine list to match. The other side of the restaurant you can sit in comfy chairs while trying craft cocktails and playing chess or other games. The ambiance is unmatched. The staff is generous, attentive, kind, and had a good pace. The food is exquisite. I personally recommend trying a tasting of every single thing on the menu. It is well worth it. The Chef’s special is always a fun surprise from elk to kangaroo, and it is absolutely delicious. This is the gem of Smyrna. There is no place like it in the general surrounding areas. It is a definite favorite and I am looking forward to the next time I enjoy time there!

    Service and Food are excellent! This is our favorite restaurant. We love to take our out of town guests. My niece said she and her boyfriend can't wait to come back and go again. It is the best restaurant they have ever been to. Wayne is the perfect server, if he suggests something try it, you will never be disappointed.

    The food was tragically over-seasoned. The chicken and rice soup had no chicken, and it tasted like nothing but black pepper (I love black pepper and it was far too much). The filet was nothing to write home about. The only seasoning on the duck, was on the fat. The lamb was really good. Didn't hang around for dessert after the disappointment.

    This is a hidden gem in Smyrna. The food was amazing. Our server, Cheyenne, was equally amazing. The restaurant is in the old Omni Hut building, which is a little dated, but we went to eat, not look at old buildings. We will be going g back. Wine tastings every 3rd Wednesday

    My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was fantastic. The mahi-mahi was cooked and seasoned perfectly, as well as the asparagus, carrots, potatoes, and key lime pie. Wayne was a phenomenal server, above the level of any servers I have had at other restaurants recently, there to help you at exactly the right time but not in the way. He made great suggestions. The atmosphere was calming and not at all loud. We will definitely return.

    The food was good. Lots of choices. It's very small inside. There was an overpowering smell of musty or moisture hopefully it wasn't mildew. There are so many ways to fix this problem. I was surprised. My husband asked for coffee they had no milk. The truck came the next day. For the prices you paid I would have expected much better than this.
