Order and Reservations



I had been wanting to try this place for over a year and a half and finally got to it tonight for my birthday. It was spectacular! I had a cucumber elderflower gimlet, golden beet salad and a stunning smoked mushroom soup to start. The salmon and a glass of Red Zinfandel for dinner were heaven. My fiancé had a grouper special that was a gorgeous, delicious dish. Service was impeccable. Fine dining without the snobbery. Very much look forward to a second outing!

Went on a Saturday night at 6. Not sure what I expected, but I assumed they’d be busy so we made reservations. Besides one other couple, we were literally the only diners. Even with that, service was slow. The app was delicious (blackened seafood fondue) but my lamb was overcooked and the menu was just kinda meh to look at. Two drinks, one app, and two entrees and we were bordering on $200, which i will say I’ve happily spent on fine dining elsewhere. Unfortunately this was just really not worth it. Maybe it’s more a bar scene in the late evening? Not really sure. Either way pretty unimpressed.

We were seated at a table beneath a dripping A/C unit. Was offered another table. The menu items we ordered referred to ingredients being lightly charred. They arrived burnt, as in charcoal briquette burnt. The server seemed surprised that we complained and stated that all items seemed to be cooked to that degree of doneness. I rated all three categories at three because I believe there is potential.

Would not recommend! Took my wife here for a date night and was not impressed. We ordered our appetizer and entrees together and we waited an hour and 15min for the appetizer and then another 35min for the entrees. When we got there we were 2 of 10 people in the entire restaurant and still took close to 2hrs for everything.

My wife and I wandered in late on Father’s Day and were amazed by what we found — an unpretentious bistro that served top notch food and drink. We started with vodka/cucumber cocktails — which were perfect — and then (gradually) became aware of the wine bottles all around which suggested a serious cellar. The “waitress” (she wore multiple hats) suggested Pinots (by the glass) to pair with our meals — but only because we asked, there was no pressure whatever — and I have to say the Noir she picked went wonderfully with my duck. My wife loved her Grigio too. Indeed, overall the service was excellent with just the right mix of hospitality and friendliness. Just don’t expect your food to arrive instantly. The combination of high culinary standards and low key vibe makes it a great place to kick back and relax. Best we’ve found in Little Rock, to date.

I don’t normally leave bad reviews, but…my husband and I came here for the first time and were disappointed. The drinks were good, but everything took forever. We went on a Saturday night and I’m not sure if they were short staffed or what. We were there for about 2 hours. Food was mediocre for what they charged us. We also had to go ask the bar tender to tab us out. Not sure if we’ll be back.

In May we had a company function here with around thirty people and the food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was nice in the back upstairs group room. Very accommodating area for a large group. The servers worked very hard with all the food and drink orders. The desert were delicious and we cannot day enough good things about this service oriented restaurant!
