Went in with a reservation of 5 that quickly turned into 10. They quickly accommodated us with no problem on a Tuesday night. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to split our check into 10 separate bills and didn't make a single mistake. Would definitely recommend.

It would be a 5 star review based on the taste of the food alone, but this day (Mother's Day), service wasn't that great. However, the good outweighs the bad. I had an excelent pork belly, on a bed of blue corn grits, topped with a fried egg, and some crispy onions. I also had a really grear wild mushroom/arugala salad that is place on too of a toasted piece of bread (I'm not sure what type it was. It was about 6" long). At the end of your meal they give you a little piece of white grapefruit chocolate. It is lightly pink in color and is a great palate cleanser. Others has the "Yardbird" (bone-in chicken ), and it looked excellently cooked and juicy. The only negative: Many of us were left without water for a significant amount of time (there is not that many tables (10 to 14 - not all occupied) and they had at least 4 to 5 servers).
