I have never taken the time to write a review before but I felt it was warranted this time. Not only was the service extremely slow (even though there were empty tables) but the food was truly awful. Don't waste your time or money!

Emma was our server and was great. The food was out of the world. Very eccentric and very gourmet. You can’t go wrong with anything at this special place. We had duck pheasant and mussels. All out of this world. Can’t wait to come back....More

The chef has a creative bent that makes this a fun spot for Duluth. The combination of ingredients and the sourcing of local produce (when in season) is wonderful. We have many times and this was a pleasant surprise for breakfast!

This is the best kept secret in Duluth! We enjoyed the freshly made food and the unique beverages. If you’re looking for a chain restaurant with processed food this isn’t your place. The service was also excellent. We will definitely be back!
