We had drinks at the bar before going to our table. The place was packed and the acoustics are terrible. We could not hear each other. The acoustics were somewhat better at... More

We went for a nice dinner and were delighted at the nice choices. The waiter knew his stuff and was friendly without being over bearing. A nicer night out in Franklin.

Where to begin... I was excited to try this restaurant based on the reviews. What a disappointment. Service was very prompt, drinks served right away. Ordered the charcuterie plate, good, but ratio of savory and sweet was way off.The chicken skewers with peanut sauce were not good at all. Hard to mess this up, but they did, Fish taco's were...

I have been here with family, friends, and coworkers and it was fine for any group. The food is dependably good, the service is usually great. They're always nice to my daughter and will substitute raw veggies for the fries in her kids meal.

Happened to find 3 on the recommendation of a local chef. I was blown away by the jambalaya which was the PERFECT mix of flavors. My buddy had a fantastic filet with their outstanding risotto. I wish I lived closer but would consider making the trip just to eat here.

Nice local restaurant. They do not take reservations for parties of less than 8. We arrived at 7 on a busy Friday, and only waited about 15 minutes for a table for 4. Comprehensive menu, nice wine list. Prices are low to mid 20's for most entrees. Eloise provided very good and unobtrusive service. Food was delivered hot and in... More

One of the best options in the general area. Nice bar, ambiance. Our early dinner of chicken skewers, salad, burger, chix parm was all well prepared and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Drinks well made. Good spot.
