A great experience. Seemingly organic ingredients. Loved the smoked whitefish dip. Excellent wine selection.

My fiancé stopped in looking for a glass of wine but found so much more! The cheese plate was to.die.for. And the service equally as pleasant. Not to be missed if you're looking for a quality cocktail hour.

If you are really hungry, choose another restaurant. Went with a group of friends and none of us left feeling too happy with the experience. The selections were interesting but very small and overpriced. The atmosphere was not very warm or inviting. I would not return.

In spite of unappealing (grey walls with huge gouges in the drywall) décor, and poor initial service (no water, no server to take orders until we went and asked for them) -- follow up service was fast, food was prepared very quickly, and was delicious. Portions of the bucatini carbonara were on the small side, but for such a well-seasoned... More

I was hoping for more Michigan wines when I visited, but regardless I enjoyed the wines I tried! You are able to get wine flights which was a great way to try a variety! The food was good as wrll!

Wanted to try a different place other than our usual spots when we are there. For a busy downtown, the place was not crowded. It is a bit upscale with a limited menu. Everything is ala carte. Food was good, portions were limited. Service was good.

A really nice wine bar with good food. The menu is limited and pretty simple, but things were well prepared. Nice simple wine list with good choices. And they have bottles for sale with an excellent and very diverse selection which are quite shockingly reasonably priced. For a small town this place is great.

We enjoyed our mushroom, pesto, and goat cheese flatbreads with a glass of wine. My son says his pulled pork sandwich was one of the best he's had. It was a great relaxing place to stop for a late lunch.

Very nice restaurant in downtown Frankfort. Dropped in for a light meal. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a salad and burger along with local brewed beer from Storm Cloud. Very good salad and the burgers are very tasty. Festive atmosphere as the bar area was packed but our barkeep did a wonderful job managing drinks and food orders. Wine... More
