    Perfect place to grab a light meal and drinks with friends. The small plate style dining allows you to sample everything. Venture in on a Sunday for a half price bottle of wine and some Sac Mac.

    SacMac is always a must (get it with bacon)! The wings are fantastic and a nice portion. The duck nachos were just alright because there was not a lot of duck and they just tasted like regular nachos.

    The food is so good! Come very hungry so you can have as many small plates as possible... Or come more than once... Get the wings... My favorite!!!! Wow

    Wino Wednesdays are great if you're looking to try a few higher end wines. They also have a middle of the road craft beer selection if you're not into wine...

    Quite possibly the best restaurant in Milwaukee. All small plates, and all of it delicious. Often a wait, but worth it!

    Order the petit tenderloin! The quality of meat is five star and the chef knows exactly how it should be prepared.

    Weird flavors but nice!!! The manchego custard was really good but don't try it if you don't want sth too sweet. The ribs were good but the portion is too small. Mushroom Napoleon were also good.

    Great, intimate place to have some wine. The bartenders are super friendly and fun to talk to. Try one of their wine flights.

    Service leaves a lot to be desired. 25 minutes for crab cakes while servers are reading books. Flat bread pizza soggy. Or if caviar for deviled eggs.
