What a nice surprise in Newport News. We had dinner on a Saturday night and the place was hopping. I think you will need a reservation if you want to eat before 8:30. Tables outside and inside were all full. We had the lamb burger,...More

The food is amazing. Everything is fresh, selections are outstanding. This was my fourth time there and every time they out do them self. Appetizers to dessert,spot on. Red snapper was delicious, shrimp and grits appetizer was a favorite.

I wanted to like this restaurant as I like the inventive menu. However, the food just isn't that great. I dined here twice, and each time the entrees were so-so. Very expensive for the average food.

The food was lovely... excellent! The service was attentive and not intrusive. The atmosphere was LOUD, and we were seated at the "Chef's Table" even though we had booked on Open Table. We felt as if we were eating in the kitchen. Will we return?...More

We visited with another couple from out of town and had an outstanding experience. The food is fresh and local. The drinks are excellent and craft cocktails are the norm

The restaurant is very small with excellent service. The dishes are unique and carefully prepared. Chad Martin is the executive chef and owner.
