I travel to the Tri Cities area on a regular basis and was blown away when I found a restaurant of this quality. It has a European feel to the menu and both the chef and the atmosphere are wonderful. I have returned several times after my initial visit and I am looking forward to the next time.

This restaurant provides a great selection that is hard to find in this region. Excellent chef options and very well done food. Service is second to none in this region. I would highly recommend this locations.

Just outside the hustle bushel of Johnson City, but within the City. It more expensive than other restaurants in the are with dinners about $60.00 a plate. We found it to be worth it. The chef kept bringing out extras. We had the chicken special, pork tenderloin, lamb chops and tuna. All were quite good. The atmosphere was friendly and... More

This is one of only a few fine food and dining experiences you can have in Johnson City. There are a few more options for fine dining in JC but this place makes its mark on the quality of food and service. The dishes are romantically presented and artistic. The staff is very professional and extremely well versed in GF... More

Came here for our anniversary after reading on trip advisor. Everything from the appetizers, salads, bread, entrees and dessert was absolutely amazing! The combinations of flavors in each were exquisite and one of my favorite restaurants ever. We will definitely be back!

We've been here a few times, while it is pricey, the food is different than the other restaurants we eat at and is very good. Wait staff was very attentive without being overbearing. Lights are dimmed, creating a romantic setting. We come here on special ocassions.

Its a different dining space. The restaurant seems to be in an older house originally. As a result the dining space is very VERY close, cramped even. With that being said the food is fantastic. One of the best dining experiences in the area. It is an adult dining experience where people tend to wear evening attire not jeans and... More

We were visiting area and looking for romantic birthday dinner. Seated in noisy room with large party on other side. Décor was overly busy to point of distraction. Food individually was good but with pairings that overwhelmed. Most dishes way too sweet.

Got there and had the place mostly to ourselves. We were seated immediately and the server was very attentive. We needed to know about gluten free options and the server knew exactly what my...
