Foursquare Tips

  • They serve The Prisoner by the glass! If you don't know what that means, ask David behind the bar.
  • It's ALL good here! Let yourself go and order something that is not part of your usual taste range... You're going to love it!
  • Sit at the bar and order small plates and wine.
  • The sweet onion, crab, and ham soup was great! I also enjoyed the grouper.
  • need to go!
  • Great scene right on DoG with excellent wine list. Guinea Fowl was awesome, and if they have soup, get it. You won't leave hungry!
  • The ambience and service are amazing. Menu is seasonal, portions more than adequate. The sweet corn madeleines were the perfect ending to our meal. Ryan was knowledgeable and so pleasant.
  • Everything I tried. Great Oyster stew special, great filet mignon, great ribs app.
  • Excellent choice .. Award winning chef..
  • Everything we ordered was absolutely incredible and melt-in-your-mouth flawless! Get the pork chops!...The decor, however, could use an upgrade.
  • Wide wine selection. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Ask your server for a pairing suggestion you will be pleasantly surprised.
  • Excellent meal. Foie gras was a sign it was going to be a great meal. Then heirloom tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Salmon and pork chop with goat cheese tart and key line creeps for dessert. Yum!
  • Great food and good people... but a controlling hostess with little desire to work to meet a guest's request can bring the entire experience down. Too bad...
  • Service and food were amazing!!! MUST GO!!
  • great food, but i'd still rather eat at the sister biz next door, the Cheese Shop
  • The meal was flawless: try the ahi tuna tempura, the quail w/ goat cheese tamale, pork chop w/ apples & walnut gruyere bread pudding... And def. the pear upside down cake w/ maple pecan ice cream.
  • Discuss the latest issue of Vanity Fair with David, behind the bar.
  • The pheasant! Good everytime...have 'em cut you a couple of slivers off of some cheese from the Shop to go with your warm bread. Happy face!
  • Everything was delicious and beautifully presented!!
  • Amazing meal.
