The short version of this review: the staff will blow you away and have you wondering why no one has ever provided this level of service to you. The long version is this: Our visit to this restaurant was one of the best experiences purely due to the professionalism, friendliness and attention of the staff. Our server Kierra, was attentive, polite and a joy to be waited by. The manager on staff blew us away from the start. We sat at a 2 person table and without us verbally expressing it, he perceived we preferred to sit side by side rather than across from one another. He moved us to make us more comfortable doing this with genuine attention and care. When we got to our dinner one of our dishes wasn't quite agreeing with our personal taste and again, the manager completely blew us away. He perceived something was amiss, asked us our opinion and thoughts about the dish and sat down to discuss the variations they had available that we would enjoy best, highlighting the options that would cater to our tastes. Never have we had such a genuine conversation with someone in the service industry. This experience could have left us paying the bill and not returning and instead made us fans of this establishment because of the people it employs and the attention and environment it provides.
This review is for the bar only as I have not had a chance to try any of the items in their menu. My boyfriend and I went there before dinner for a few drinks and had an amazing time. The bartender Salim is professional, friendly and had a great attitude! I was very impressed with his Old Fashioned - I will say that is the best I have EVER had. We ended up leaving for dinner and coming back two hours later with friends because I could not stop bragging about my overall experience. Thanks for the excellent service and my new favorite drink in NC!!!
If you are looking for unique this is the place. Their menu is definitely that! Though, their restaurant week menu wasn't the greatest there are other things off restaurant week menu I would have tried. It's a little corner restaurant and good for those who are a little adventurous with their food. Definitely for foodies!
Cheese empanadas and great cocktails. Other great dishes, but better to share. Come for the great live music (saxophonist Dante is the best). I'm coming back to watch Sunday football in these killer soft couches. Edit: I've been back three times for lunch, which they now have a condensed, cheaper menu for. Noticed more rotating, seasonal dishes, and I'v'e never been unhappy with the food I've ordered.
Will definitely be back! We had a party of 10 and service was great, but the food was excellent. From burgers to short ribs we had numerous dishes and each one was delicious. Not one single complaint.
