I recently returned to St. John's for a business dinner. We had a large group so they placed us in a room in the back that is built to accomodate larger groups with an area for a presentation. The food was very good as is the norm here. Service was outstanding as usual also. The prices are pretty expensive, but... More

This place is the epitomy of elegant, I always feel like I am Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn as I walk into the chic white and black restaurant. My daughters were so impressed with our server-they bring you napkins to match your decor (white or black)so as NOT to contribute white napkin lint on your beautiful black cashmere sweater dress-how...

I ordered the antelope since I gave never seen it on a menu and it was also very good although I wish it had different sides. The restaurant has beautiful... More

Read the great reviews and stopped on my way to Atlanta to give it a try. Certainly glad I did. Was a special dining experience. Chef Rebecca Barron does an amazing job of making each dish special and unique. Was sold from the first course of foie gras...brilliant. Good wine list....and do order dessert. The dessert chef is gifted as... More

Who sells Japanese Wagyu/Kobe beef for $60?! Everything was well seasoned and plated in a great atmosphere. Worth every penny. I wore dark jeans and while many were dressed much nicer, I felt at home.
