    The Central Ave location has a beautiful, inviting interior, comfortable seating, and we loved that the tables came from local Smoky Mountain Vintage Lumber! Michelle made us feel welcome right away, provided top service, and guided us through our first visit with solid suggestions. We started with Oysters Rockefeller and an incredibly rich Irish potato soup, then moved on to the duck and scallops for our entres. All were flavorful and beautifully presented. We shared an espresso cheesecake for dessert and enjoyed every bite.

    The staff were excellent and the atmosphere was palpable. It was a busy night when a group of five went and we all had an overall great experience. Two of us had the market ribeyes, and while birth delicious, both were two temps above what we ordered, rare, mid rare. Nonetheless it was a busy night, and they were great. All entres were great as well. The appetizers were well thought out. The drink selection was one of the best around. Top level staff here combined with a smaller yet will curated menu. Living downtown we'll be sure to be back. If you want a reservation book ahead of time. Nothing like the old bistro by the tracks in Bearden, expect better than that right here.

    Best meal I have had in Knoxville. We went for my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary and it was phenomenal. The service (Mike) and the food were outstanding!!!

    Very good; could be amazing with very little effort. I love the idea behind the restaurant and I think it could become a fine dining place very easily. The service was excellent, they serve delicious and generous drinks, and they’re very reasonably priced. But the waiter could have either warned me about the level of spice in the bouillabaisse or it should have been marked in the menu as spicy. Also, we noticed the kitchen doesn’t time the dishes well, so they sit in the window and arrive lukewarm at the table, which I dislike especially with red meat. Basically, nothing arrived warm enough tonight; and it’s too bad because I can tell they try very hard. In addition, all food could use more seasoning, especially salt. And tone down on pepper; it doesn’t have to be on everything, including the crouton bread pieces in the appetizers. Lastly, they don’t serve espresso, which to me is disappointing because I like a small shot after a heavier meal. They can’t aspire to be a fine dining place without serving European style coffees. But it is by far the best restaurant in Knoxville I’ve eaten so far, with excellent service (they didn’t make me pay for the mean dish because the bouillabaisse arrived spicy), and I do want to go back for more sometime.

    Our server was Anthony and he was great, very informative, kind, welcoming they helped me decide on the chef pasta which was delicious! Had an amazing time, the atmosphere was inviting and warm. They also had really lovely nonalcoholic cocktail options. Definitely look forward to coming back.
