Went to the Hill Country Galleria location to meet some friends for dinner. Arrived at 5:30 and ordered drinks while we waited for our friends to arrive. Place was not busy but took over 10 minutes to get a glass of wine and a cocktail....More

Out of shrimp at 7pm on a Friday? Walk across the parking lot to Whole Foods, or across the street to HEB. At least tell us BEFORE we order! Meh food, slow kitchen. Ended up with the traditional gnocchi with, boring sauce, a couple of...More

Feels like a small, cozy upscale bar with a wonderful menu - not "bar food". Some local/organic options, nice salads, wraps & sandwiches plus full entrees. They offer both full and half size salads & sandwiches.

Have been here a few times and absolutely love the food, although it's a little on the pricey side. Last experience wasn't terrible, but could have been better. We were seated at a large table with extremely high chairs that were hard to move, and...More

Not a good experience. Service was indifferent, ordered appetizer never appeared and food when it arrived was lukewarm. Lamb chop special was good but served without the accompanying chimichurri sauce. Price was ridiculously expensive for the quality.

Waitress forgot our water, forgot the appetizer and the main course was stone cold so we had to send it back to be heated. One couple shared an entree and the bill was still quite expensive. Banned.

There is nothing too special about this restaurant. The food tasted average and the service was sub par. The service was slow and the food was what you would expect. The prices were high for the size of the portions.

We arrived for a late lunch during happy hour, lucky for us...very good martini was $5. We selected a couple of appetizers: olives and empanadas (large selection, we had the spicy beef, chicken and spinach) to go with cocktails...all very good. The chimichurri sauce was...More
