“We can't wait to come back for a date night!”

Attended a private party and everything was great! We ordered off a condensed menu, food came out quickly and was super tasty! Such a great time, and awesome staff, would definitely recommend for an event and we can't wait to come back for a date night!

“The gluten free options are amazing!”

I am from out of town and gluten and dairy sensitive. The gluten free options are amazing! Maddie was our service tonight and she was informative and attentive. Highly recommend.

“Best new restaurant in the metro!”

Best new restaurant in the metro! The ambiance is modern and chic. The menu is wonderful, so many great choices cooked to perfection and brilliantly presented. Finally a spacious, trendy patio! We love being elevated up on the 2nd level, the outdoor patio is spacious, inviting and fun.
