Very good food. Mid century modern vibe. Very loud, especially with the type of background music. That being said, I would go back for a delicious meal.

One of the best meals I have had. I been a chef for 34 years. This meal will be one of my most memorable. I love Brussels sprouts any have prepared them in many different way. Littler has the best I have ever enjoyed.

Possibly one of the only restaurants actually worth the price in this area yet they have a humble confidence in their menu that makes you feel like you can't go wrong with any selection. This is how food should be. Wait staff was incredibly warm. Intimate atmosphere and cool music.

Welcoming space with delicious local, seasonal and creative food. Great wine list and helpful, knowledgeable waitstaff. Can't wait to return!

Even though the short ribs were swapped out for a Petit tender on the menu, our slight disappointment was overshadowed by the unbelievable food, service and atmosphere at this gem of a restaurant. Our server Cherry was outstanding as well.

Superb quality. Easily the best restaurant in Durham. The raw appetizers are impeccable and the mains follow suit. Cocktails are great as well. In the winter, they have a vegetarian, mushroom shepherds pie that I dream of. Really is the best restaurant!

Great experience! The atmosphere is quaint and intimate. Cocktails are fantastic- there is an option where you can order a mystery drink and just give them your parameters. The bartender actually comes out to your table individually to give you your cocktail and tells you what she made for you based on your preferences. They were some of the best cocktails I have ever had- she is an excellent mixologist! The food was outstanding- my friend and I were both pleased with our dishes. I truly believe this is one of the best restaurants in Durham and highly recommend checking it out.

Great food....if you go alone its fine, we went with a group of 4 and the music is so loud you cant hear anyone at your table. People end up talking so loud so you can hear each other. I dont know why they think it should be that loud its such a small place....just be prepared for the noise level.

Food and service are amazing - serious kudos to chef and service teams. Your restaurant is impeccable, and the vibe is super chill. Gorgeous interiors. Menu changes seasonally so be sure to check them out at least a few times a year!

Fabulous food with absolutely incredible service, but a very limited menu (otherwise would have totally given them 5 stars). There were only I think 5 entrees to choose from, soooo.... I'm not a picky eater, and devoured all of my Springer Chicken (and some of my hubby's lamb burger), and there were still items I'd come back to try. Not sure if their menu rotates seasonally, etc. but if you have dietary restrictions this would probably be a hard place to eat. Otherwise, come for fabulously decadent food!

I have walked past this spot in downtown Durham for years but finally stopped in for my wedding anniversary. I was surprised by how small it was, but we didn't need a reservation on a Wednesday night (but I am sure you do on the weekend). The ambiance is perfect for a date night. The tables are pretty close together and you will overhear whatever the people next to you are talking about (but that's a lot of Durham restaurants).

My friend and I had dinner here on a Tuesday evening. Pros: We thought the atmosphere was cozy and inviting, especially for those on a date. And the wine list was unique in a good way. Cons: Menu was too limited. We both for the beef tenderloin served with a corn cake or something (seemed like corn toast). It was fine, but that’s all. Beef wasn’t extra tender or flavorful. I didn’t care for the corn cake thing—very plain tasting. The tomato tart appetizer wasn’t all that good either. Thus, we were underwhelmed by the food and probably wouldn’t go back. But the wine and atmosphere helped balance the average food.

Great chef, great atmosphere, food is outstanding! Service is attentive and friendly. It is hard to get into and main dinning Sometimes and Its a bit to close together in the main dinning room Seating. But! The secret is to sit at the bar. Carla is amazing.! Sunday 1/2 bottles of wine and Monday $1 oysters are worth the experience. I recommend this place all the time!!

Food was for the most part great, service was not! We felt rushed and uncomfortable. Not sure it was worth the $100 a head we all ended up spending. Left feeling let down, which was disappointing as there has been so much hype about this place. Some of the dishes were excellent, but staff needs to be way more professional if you ask the prices this place is asking. I think they can do it, just needs a manager to intervene. Shame as some of the dishes were lovely.
