    My friends and I went out for dinner during Howard County Restaurant Week. We chose this restaurant because the menu looked so creative and different. We liked almost all the dishes. The chestnut soup, goat cheese appetizer, and grilled endive/fennel/shrimp/blood orange salad were delicious. The steak and chicken cacciatore entrees were good. And we all loved the frangipane tart with pear and persimmon!

    I asked for a taste of the Cream of Baltimore soup to see if I wanted to order a $12 bowl, as the waiter, nice guy, was unable to accurately articulate the flavors. I didn't want to waste a bowl of their soup and my $12. The waiter obliged and delivered a sample. There was no mention that I would be CHARGED $4 for it. That was completely uncalled for and ruined what was otherwise an ok meal. On a side note, the restaurant is in need of a major refresh. The 80's called and want their decor back.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our NYE dinner. There were plenty of options on their prix-fixe menu everything was executed well. The timing of the dishes from the kitchen was spot on. We enjoyed the charcuterie plate, wild game pate, cream of baltimore soup, smoked duck breast salad, bison filet mignon and the stuffed chicken breast. I thought the service was a bit pushy, but the food definitely made up for it. This is one of many great experiences we've had here over the years and I'm sure we'll keep coming back.

    Great experience as always with awesome service, amazing food and good company. The lobster and shrimp bisque was great, a little cayenne pepper made the spice pop just enough. The filet mignon was cooked just right and was very tender. The veggies were fresh and I believe from their garden on site. The cocktails were a little basic so I would suggest going with wine as they have a good wine list. As usual, great experience.

    The food was delicious, me & my date sat upstairs at a table for 2. Our server was very energetic, very comical as well great energy. I had the steak with au gratin potatoes. Which by the way was very delicious, The chef personally stopped by, & we exchanged a few words. My date ordered well done for her steak, but a part of the steak was too bloody wasn’t really cooked all the way. Everything else was wonderful overall. We also took pictures 🙏🏾.

    After a long work day, to take a leadership team to a local, high-end restaurant where we could enjoy cocktails, a wonderful dinner with attentive, engaging and expert service, where it was quiet enough to talk at a normal level, in a lovely setting-- what more could one possibly ask? Oh, the food was perfectly prepared, from the lamb shank to the duck gnocchi to the sauteed shrimp and beef potpie, complemented by the lobster bisque and french onion soup. The suggested wine pairings were perfect, and the desserts: blood-orange parfait, maple bourbon crème brulee and bread pudding wrapped up a remarkable business dinner that we all truly appreciated. The restaurant was very busy but everything was perfectly timed, the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff ensured we were well taken care of. Thank you!

    Excellent experience, highlights were the service, ambiance and overall friendliness of the staff. The pork chops were quite good, loved the combination of the honey nut squash and the red cabbage. Crab cakes were also a hit, the only very minor non-plus was the wild rice, it could have used a bit more seasoning. It had been a while since we last visited, we won't wait so long before returning, definitely a Howard County gem.
