Absolutely incredible food and service. There are separate stations for GF food prep and servers were knowledgeable.

Some of the best food I have ever had. We started with shrimp, then had trout and pork osso bucco. The gluten free corn bread was delicious. For dessert, we had a blue cheese cheesecake with lemon sorbetto. One of the best desserts I have ever had.

Highly recommend if you can get a reservation. Without a reservation, you may be able to get a spot at the bar.

Absolutely amazing! Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten anywhere in the country. You can dress up or be casual. The waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable and checked with the chef for multiple food allergies. Menu indicates what is GF.

Just moved to Knox 6 days ago and this was a perfect find. My boyfriend and I had our first great meal here!

I am celiac and everything GF was marked. You can also see the chefs if you sit at the bar. We both had perfectly made dark & stormy’s (home made ginger beer was awesome). Salmon was perfect and the color was not of the farmed fish, bonus.
