A dinning experience different from any we have experienced in Chattanooga. Menu offerings are not run of the meal creations. Our taste buds were exhilarated with fabulous flavors never tasted. A restaurant definitely placed on our return list.

Pricey but good. Atmosphere is ok but you will forget about it when you taste your food! The menu changes often with delicious entrees try out.

The tasting of Heritage farm’s pork was some of the best food I’ve ever put in my mouth. Food doesn’t get much better than this. Everything on the menu was wonderful. The cocktails were creative. Once you get past the snooty maître d, the staff...More

The service was certainly what you would expect for fine dining. The atmosphere was elegant but comfortable. I had preconceived idea of my selections for dinner from menu on website but chose from the Fall menu specials, The results were wonderful.
