“Perfect Snack After and Active Day”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

I rate this an excellent based on the entire experience - location, service, food, price, etc. Obviously this is not Per Se.

After a couple of hours of snow-shoeing we were welcomed by friendly people, offered food that was quite good (olives, fresh bread, a wonderful beef on kimmelweck (even the horseradish was sharp and tasty!)

There was a very nice wine list with variety and without pretension (our server even offered up that they were listed in order by certain traits).

If you are luck enough to be spending some time in the Adirondacks, and near Gore Mountain in North Creek this is worth going to. I just wish they were opened for lunch on days other than Saturday.

“Great tapas and drinks”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Even though at first this tapas restaurant seemed a little out of place in the sleepy mountain town of North Creek, but in fact it's a great addition to the other, mostly standard-fare restaurants. The tapas were excellent, fairly well-priced, and the selection of craft beers and wines was terrific. The place had a wonderful atmosphere and seemed to attract locals as well as tourists.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here!!

My husband and I were surprised to find this amazing (and reasonable!) gem of a tapas bar in the quaint town of North Creek. Since we were hungry when we arrived in town mid-afternoon on 12/31/11, we stopped in to hook up with friends/grab something to eat/drink since our dinner reservation at another restaurant wasn't until 8PM (yes -- we ate again!). While we were disappointed that we had to wait until 5PM to order food, it was well worth the wait and we were happy to indulge in the fabulous selection of 100 wines and 30 beers. The co-owner, Mike, was so friendly and knowledgeable -- and gladly steered us around the menu. The food was delicious. We tried the coconut fried shrimp, Thai style beef skewers (yummy!), curried chickpea fritters and mussels with green curry, lime and cilantro (to die for!). We loved the place so much that we went back the next night for seconds! While we ordered some of the same dishes, we also tried the abbey ale/spinach/bacon mussels (good, but we liked the curry ones better -- make sure you save the sauce to dip your bread in!), olives, frites, gnocchi, antipasto and beef brisket sandwich. This is a great place to go with a group so you can try a bunch of different small bites. The salads and top sirloin steak looked great too -- something you should order if you don't want to share. Don't miss the adjacent wine store. Many thanks and best wishes for much success to Mike, Jeremy, Patrick and, of course, the phenomenal chef and rest of the wonderful staff!

“Awesome Meal. Amazing menu. 5-stars.”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

The service was outstanding. The menu was exceptional. We had an order of curry mussels - Wow! Cooked perfectly, and the remaining broth was like a bowl of cury soup from Thailand. We asked for bread so that we could soak up the broth and enjoy it. We also shared a cheeseburger, a Gourmet burger.

It was so good. Great wine list. The owner was buzzing around and chatted us up for a while. And they have free high-speed wi-fi, so I could use my phone to catch up on a few things..
