Average food. Small portions thinking as tapas but pricey for the size of portions. Very noisy, as it seems they don't know how to regulate the music to the bar noise. Everything just echoes, so don't think of this as a quiet place for dinner,...More

We had the most delicious brunch! So much fun with lots of different dishes for everyone. Service was great, & we got to see the horse & carriage go by out the front window! We felt like this restaurant could have been found in Europe....More

We went here for brunch on a Saturday morning. The location is very unique, in a old, converted building. I loved the warehouse decor with naked lightbulbs and industrial tables and chairs. Although I didn't partake, they had a make your own bloody mary bar...More

Amazing food and service from this hole in the wall gem. Sweet potato gnocchi is one of the best dishes I’ve had.

I love the fact that you can still find an old repurposed building in Charlotte that has not been destroyed by modernization. We ventured out here before the Cirque de Soleil show at Spectrum upon recommendation of a friend. Found that the Bloody Mary bar...More
