I travel to Austin for work and dine solo. I favor going to the wine bar and happy hour is great! Half price bar menu and the wine selection by the glass is more extensive than most restaurants. Wait staff have always been friendly.

Very quaint and lively operation, the menu selection paired with wine was very well done. The standout was the exceptional friendliness of the staff. Every person there was just terrific. Great meal, good vibes and the ability to relax on business for a few hours.

We made a reservation four our anniversary. It is an intimate place so be prepared for a rise in the noise level as the seats fill. Our waiter was engaging and attentive even with a large 10 top. We really enjoyed the 5 course tasting....More

Smart casual to fully dressed up. It is a reasonably relaxed and friendly place, but don't turn up in flip flops and shorts!
