Without question, one of the finest meals we have had. Out steaks were perfect medium rare, the service exceptional, and the experience superb. Thanks Jordan for bumping up our seating time. We'll be back the next time we travel this way.

Absolutely the best meal we ate on a 4700-mile road trip. Excellent steaks, creative sauces, fresh vegetables from local organic sources.

Whenever near Harrisonburg we come here for a great dinner. Great steaks and great wine and great service. What else could I ask for? And the price is not overboard.

Really nice "farewell" to the area dinner. Upscale but casual and relaxed. Food was delicious and many unique offerings. Service was outstanding as server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Be sure to take advantage of the valet parking as parking could be a challenge.

If you don't mind sitting in the bar area you should be fine. If you want a real table in the proper restaurant, I'd make a reservation.

It was Easter Sunday when we went but it is mostly a casual restaurant. Patrons were dressed up after church so our experience was different. I really like this place!
