Went here on a recommendation from a friend. Warm modern restaurant. Food was absolutely fantastic as were the drinks. The staff is very quick to make sure you want for nothing.

We did not meet our server until 30 minutes after we were seated. Once the server introduced theMselves and the drink specials they literally sped away without asking questions or allowing us to place our order after we had 30 minutes to look over menus and prepare. They returned to gather drink orders and we insisted on including our meal orders as well, 25 minutes after the initial meet. Only after the owner came to our table to check in did our wine show up another 25 minutes after we ordered. We received our check around 9pm from a 6pm seating for 6 with 1 round of drinks and an entree, No appetizers or desserts were ordered and our party was never not prepared to cause a need for the server to give us more time.

The wine happy hour was amazing. You can do a "tasting" reasonably with full pours. The steak and lobster dishes were excellent. The onion soup was amazing. The staff is so sweet & helpful. Our only complaint was the shrimp & grits dish was unusually small compared to the other dishes we ordered, but tasted great. Wonderful place...highly recommended!

The food was extraordinary! Our waiter was Jamie who was very knowledgeable. He gave us outstanding advice and was very accurate in his descriptions of the various choices. Very nice bourbon selection. The crusted tuna was the best ahi tuna meal I have had. Two in our party ordered sea bass and also feel it was their best sea bass entree ever. Dessert was beignets which we’re outstanding. Great experience guided by Jamie. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a great chef driven menu and meal. Only slight negative was all staff are apparently required to wear masks.

Food was delicious. The prices on the menu did not match what we were charged. I ordered an 8 ounce filet. Menu says 48. I was charged 64. Charged for Pepsi when I only drank water. Even after the adjustment only decreased it by 15 when it should have been 22. That being said. The food was all delicious. Spin dip best ever.

Thank you Isaac, Chef Alex and our wonderful server for great service and food. We ordered 5-6 appetizers, 2 salads, main dishes and desserts which were all delicious. One of my favorites was the yellow watermelon and arugula salad. Butternut squash soup was very good too. Duck egg rolls and tuna tartare were daily specials that were a treat. It was ladies night out for 4 moms and we really enjoyed a quiet Tuesday evening out. The surprise favorite was the cheesecake dessert special. I asked Isaac in advance if he could make his yummy mulled wine and he did. I took home their awesome hamburger & fries and chocolate mousse dessert for my kids to share. Thank you!

Pleasantly greeted and seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. Our server (Kirsten S) was excellent in all phases of the meal. Clearly chefs prepared the meals, and not merely cooks - taste, combinations, and presentation. Pricey, so we can't afford to eat there often; but it will be amongst the few we'd eat at for this price range.
