This restaurant meets all expectations. Is a maven. No reason to eat elsewhere. Will eat there again. Try the salad.

Our meal was exceptional. The dishes not only tasted great, but also were plated as a work of art. My only complaint is that they had no kids menu.

We had high hopes for this ultra-popular restaurant. I was delighted to learn that they have a truly delicious ginger beer, and the drinks ordered and delivered were fine. Food was a little slow in coming. We could see happy faces all around us, mostly on the faces of those ordering the Osso Buco and the Steak. My Cioppino was... More

I've been here on a couple different occasions. Each time I have been thoroughly impressed with nearly all aspects. The servers are very knowledgeable in their menu and are happy to answer any questions. I've tried about four different main dishes in my visits and each one has been above expectations and served with a beautiful presentation. Though we were... More

This is arguably the best restaurant in Pensacola -- and it would be a great restaurant anywhere. Our first visit was a terrific surprise, the menu was small but a nice assortment of choices, all remarkably well prepared. Our server -- Danielle -- could not have been nicer. The secret of this place is a talented chef, a lot of... More

Walking in, the casual modern decor is dominated by the beautiful open kitchen. Dishes going by gave a sense of the artistry of the food to come. Some real care and thought has gone in to the wine list, with many intriguing and original choices on the red side, and we settled on 2013 Languedoc-Roussillon region red that was just... More

Make sure you get a reservation early for this jewel in Pensacola. There are not a lot of tables and they are full at all times, for good reason. Seating is tight but you do not feel that you are eating at someone's table. A problem that exists for too many places with tight quarters. Enough about that. There is... More

They took chicken and dumplings to a new level. Really satisfying and well worth trying. Great cocktails and a lovely atmosphere. I did not like my partner's Nutella pie too much, but my Panna Cotta was great. We will definitely return.
