Matthews, NC 28105

RESERVATIONS: 704-845-1899


French/American eclectic cuisine exquisitely prepared and presented by New York Chef Adam Reed. This historic Matthews location is reminiscent of European eateries where candlelit dining is enjoyed in our cozy dining room or in our secluded year-round garden room. Our intimate atmosphere earned us "Best Restaurant for Romance" by Creative Loafing and a 5-star rating from Carolina Weekly. Vast wine selection and full-service bar.
