We were in town in vacation stumbled upon this place for dinner, we sat at the bar and had some great conversations with the locals about the food. Inhad firecracker shrimp and my boyfriend had the jambalaya- both were amazing! We also tried the oysters,...have to say they were our least favorite. Great date night spot for getting smaller portions and good drinks! Also, our bartender was amazing- she gave us lots of tips for adventure around the area.More

We were in town for the night and found this spot online and also saw it suggested reservations but we thought we’d give it a try. Arrived and found it really hot and muggy inside. Not certain they have air conditioning. They have a patio...area so we put our name on the waiting list to be seated outside, and we’re told it might be about 30 mins (providing them a number to call when table was ready). We checked in at 45 mins and the host did the “oh yeah, we have a table” kind of thing. When we were seated, we saw the couple (same size party) who had come after us and put their name in were seated long enough to be half way through a bottle of wine. We’d obviously not been the squeaky wheel so I am guessing our name was overlooked on the wait list. Next impression was waitress arriving to take order and we asked about a menu. She told us to look it up on the website. We asked if they had a QR code to move things along quicker, as this is a norm at almost all restaurants in the Twin Cities area (where we come from). She answered no and as we fumbled on our phones, said she could try and find a paper menu. The restaurant has a daily menu which is pretty cool but also seems to be another good reason besides COVID for a scannable QR code menu. We ordered three delicious items, Thai burger, scallops and bang bang shrimp. All very good and served as they were ready. It is Tapas so you need to order a number of thjngs and share and that is part of the fun. Enjoyed diverse drink menu. Waitress was very good and attentive. Manager seemed to be very focused on visiting with regulars. Possibly host stand could use some of his help on managing walk in reservations. Or again, maybe a waiting list app could be used like many places have implemented in the last year. Patio could use some love - flowers or greenery of some sort. We’d eat there again for the food but not much else stands out at this trendy tapas spot that we were told is all the rage in Steven’s Point.More

Love the tapas menu. Also like that they grow their own herbs and some produce in the summer. Very creative and unique menu.

We dined here on a beautiful Thursday afternoon in their outdoor patio. We had the mushroom appetizer which was perfectly deep-fried - crispy and moist inside. For entrees, we had the seared scallops (perfectly cooked - tender and juicy) and the half BBQ chicken (nice...smoke flavor but a little dry). We ended with tres leches and a shortycake desserts. Both were excellent.More

The four of us get together for light business meetings fairly often. We take turns hosting the meeting near our hometowns. We like to out-do the other by picking a place that has great food and is unique. All four of us loved this place...and the food. We each picked one or two plates and we shared them all. The Asian chicken wraps, Andouille sausage plate, and the cheese try were our favorites. The bloody Mary's were delicious also. All together we got to try 7 or 8 different menu items; all of which were very different and very tasty. We had great service and a good time. The only negative is that the table was too small to put all those plates on.More

Good food and amazing cocktails. Don't skip the Chinatown. Not sure there's a better drink anywhere. Solid small plate choices.

Wonderful time enjoying a meal as an event. We have become too accustomed to fast meals to be completed in a hurry. This place is not like that. We came on a date night, looking for an event of a meal, not a quick meal....This was perfect! We took our time, ordered items as we wanted them, and had plenty of time to talk as we leisurely enjoyed our food. Never felt rushed. Great date night event.More

Found this place while driving through and needing some lunch. The food is good and some things were great but we were attacked by flies the entire time. The menu is a wide variety of small plates. The highlight was the sausage stuffed mushrooms with...marinara. Service was excellent and the owner paid our table a very nice visit. Expensive. I’d return if in the area again.More

I am pretty sure you can because you can win a gift card on their Facebook page, so I would assume you could purchase one.

They will have a bruschetta and a flatbread of the day for around $7-$8. As usual, there is a soup of the day. The waitress will ask if you want to hear them.
