An authentic food restaurant. this is probably the best local food restaurant in Roanoke. I would suggest, however, that you order your meats rarer by two degrees than you like as meats and eggs have been overcooked the last three times that I've been there....More

The food was excellent, although a bit pricey for the portions. I do love the incorporation of local produce and products. The menu changes frequently, so there's always something new to try. The Grandin area where the restaurant is located is lovely and very walkable.

$70 brunch for 2 with a drink each. Burger was bland but all other food was pretty good. Drinks were fantastic.

Everything was very good. Except for the pig cheek(I think it was) it was house cured and subpar. Besides that this place is pretty spot on. Great atmosphere as well.More

We love this restaurant. The food is always wonderful and the service is very friendly and competent. If you'd like to experience the atmosphere of an Impressionist painting of a French bistro... this is your restaurant!

Have been here twice for brunch/lunch. Everything was delicious and locally sourced. Decor is both chic and comfy. Specials change from week to week. Little pricey, especially if teenage boy in family who eats a lot.
