Went last night for the first time and am now hooked. Outstandingly crafted cocktails, small plates, salad and service. "Big" plates were great, but small plates were really where it was at. I also liked that the staff was knowledgeable, helpful, attentive yet relaxed. I highly recommend supporting this place as we don't have too many options like this in Austin.

    I love this place. The servers are friendly and know the foods and the wine. We always have a great time there, figuring out what small plates to order. One of my favorites is the goat cheese with honey.

      I have only been for happy hour, but the cocktails were terrific, and the apps were good. The standout app was the deep fried anchovy stuffed olives. WOW! These were really good. My favorite cocktail that I had was the Sazerac, and after a few of those, the bartender made us a Vieux Caree, which is a take on the Sazerac but with Cognac. Good times were had by all.
