Our dinner was excellent and we both had minestrone soup and fish which were excellent. We called ahead and they had a table for two ready and walked from an our temporary home within the neighborhood. Loved walking and having a great meal with wonderful service. I would recommend it!

Enjoyed a wonderful soup and salad lunch. Service was great and food was even better. This east Nashville eatery shares the informality of the neighborhood without losing the excellence of Margo who is often seen working her magic in the kitchen.

Lovely evening out with friends. Interesting and delicious menu choices, fantastic apps and excellent drinks. Definitely upscale in a funky brick ware-house type building. Everyone loved their meals. Outstanding service as well.

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B hostess. A warm atmosphere in this small bistro. Friendly, knowledgable staff explain the gourmet, affordable menu. Sensible portions made with quality ingredients. Try the lemon tart after dinner. A fine selection of Madeira finished our dinner.

If this place isn't at one of the legendary Five Points, it's just a block or so away. So, it's easy to find, in a prominent Nashville neighborhood. It came highly recommended and it lived up to the hype.

For Nashville this is a very hipster area and hipster style of eatery. We really had a nice time here with amazing food and friends. It is quiet enough for large groups to chat but not noisy. Service was fun and friendly with a overall great time.

Cozy restaurant in a charming area. Service was excellent,menu fresh and exciting. The food was great and the cocktails very interesting. My only qualm was the appetizers were very small portions for the price.

We had a party of 16 and the staff was absolutely wonderful to work with. Both by phone and in person. Atmosphere is great. Service was impeccable. Most everyone in our group loved their meal. My pork loin (with swiss chard and pears) was the best I've ever had. The only reason I'm giving four stars is the desserts. We... More

Five of us ate here. Myself and my partner and our three American friends (two are East Nashvilleans ) Exellent food all round. Wine good (French malbec) a bit pricey but it's come a long way I suppose! Everything on menu is of high quality, a lot of thought had gone into it. I had Monkfish which was as good... More

I went with a friend for an early dinner and it was good. It is not my favorite type of food, so I probably won't go back, but I am glad I tried it. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

Thank vicfreak
