Located among the lofts in Poncey-Highlands, this place is pretty cool upon entry (once you wind through the complex from the parking lot to the front door). Interesting menu and strong drinks!

Exceptional, and one of the top five restaurants I've visited. The space is standard mod aluminum and wood, and could use a little sound treatment, but still acceptable to someone hearing impaired like myself. Service was acceptable but not gracious - our waitress was a little more "take charge" than I'm used to but not offensively so. For entrees we had salmon grilled in grape leaves over wheatberry couscous, and duck breast a la plancha over burgundy risotto. Both were perfectly executed and presented. The salmon was exactly the right doneness, which I would have to think is hard to pull off when it's wrapped in grape leaves. I paired that with a spicy Hungarian white Tokaji, and was very pleased with the result. My girlfriend happily tucked into her duck and pronounced it "yummy", which I promptly verified. We looked at the dessert menu, but were so pleased with dinner that we decided we were finished for the evening. The dessert menu was tempting however, and the chocolate terrine with olive oil and sea salt especially so... perhaps next time.

We came in late on a week night so maybe that's why we found the service so exceptional but the food was also delicious. We had a hamachi tataki appetizer, as well as crispy fried oysters wrapped in bacon! The special entree of seared diver scallops was the best, and the sides with that, mascarpone stuffed pasta and greens with pancetta both complemented the scallops beautifully. they brought us a complimentary dessert, as it was my birthday and we will definitely eat here again!

I rarely have bad restaurant experiences, but this one was not pleasant. I was with a large party on a Saturday night, so that does make it difficult. We were seated roughly 90 minutes after our reservation time. Also, we were limited to a fixed 3-course meal with only 3 options under each course - the restaurant said that this would speed the service. The service was very slow - it was ~30 minutes before the starters arrived - even with just the french onion soup, salad or meat plate as starter options. In the meantime, no bread was offered (this is after the 90-minute table wait). Main Course choices were only the steak & fries, scallops or chicken...not much interesting there. Food was OK, but nothing to mention. Nothing was "comped" nor anything regarding a better return visit. The restaurant was hot, the wait-staff was sweating, but nothing could be done (until very late in the evening, he owner came upstairs, went into the back room and then suddenly the place started cooling down). I had read the menu online and was looking forward to the experience, but I got a "no return policy" on this one. I'd head to Vine, Toulouse, Atmosphere, "One MK" or "Two" ... but a re'-turn visit to Re'past might get me re'-pissed!!

Had a very nice dinner here. We walked in with no reservation and waited at the bar -- enjoying their interesting wine list until a table was ready. I had the dates wrapped in bacon appetizer -- sounds simple, but it was killer! I also enjoyed my seared scallop entree. My husband thought his soup was more like a minestrone than what he expected for a Tuscan bean soup, but overall we were happy with our meals, and expect we will be going back.

I went here before a show at the Fox and it was great. Excellent scallops and coconut rice, service very attentive and superb iced tea presentation. Not crowded before the show like other places.
