I have eaten here a few times before, it's a little more expensive than ordinary food. But when you eat the food, you can tell that it is made with fresh quality ingredients. The smothered pork chops on top of smoked grits is my favorite. I liked the roast beef sandwich also, it's unlike any other that I've had. The... More

We walked by this place earlier in the afternoon and after reading reviews we decided we would dine here for dinner. We spent the day shopping and touring the museum then went back to our hotel to dress for our dinner. There was a large private group in the restaurant when we arrived but there were about 5-6 empty tables... More

Ate Apple Streudel which had a cream cheese center, was warmed and covered with a Dulce de Leche sauce. Bistro was reminiscent of one's I've visited in Paris, France. The owner was quirky and friendly and it seemed her teenage children... More

Really really slow, food was slightly above ordinary. Pricey menu. Bathroom in the kitchen. Untrained staff.

My husband and I split a Mardi Gras. Sandwich was very small for the price. I thought it was good, but my husband said the sauce was overpowering and he couldn't taste the rest of the sandwich...only sauce. Service was very slow. We asked for our ticket and waited 10 minutes while our waitress chatted behind the counter. I finally... More

10 family members ate here for dinner. The food was great, and their wine options were great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was very good as well.

We were driving through coming home from Hot Springs Arkansas and decided to stop in Jefferson have lunch and do some shopping before heading back to Spring Texas. After waiting for 20 plus minutes for a table (which the 6 ladies that were behind us (they had only just walked up 8 minutes before) and the party that was in... More
