    My husband and I visited this adorable tapas restaurant today and were not disappointed! We do not drink alcohol, but did try the guava and grapefruit “mocktail.” It was perfectly sweetened and balanced with the grapefruit not overpowering the guava. The olives were a beautiful, top-notch mix marinated in olive oil. We also had a healthy portion of the mussels in a light coconut-lemon grass broth. The best part was their service, attention, and atmosphere. Lovely to sit outside looking out at Mountain Ave. This is a neat place to have a drink and a couple of tapas with friends or loved ones - highly recommend it!

    This is hard to write; I've thought about not posting because I know how hard restaurants are to run. This is a strange feeling I have. I came in with expectations… and it looks like that is the problem here again. Of course, I’ve learned that you only set yourself up to be let down if you have expectations. I guess that is true of this example. Bummed. FOOD: App: “Radish” Anytime I go to a fine dining restaurant and the ingredient is listed as the appetizer, I get excited and would expect something creative or elaborate to be done with the ingredient. In this case, they chose to leave the ingredient entirely alone other than washing it from out of the ground. FINE, I totally understand, that’s a very farm to table style of service….cooooool… HOWEVER, We were not serviced with any silverware or napkins and we were relinquish to eating the radish like an apple. Once the server noticed, I was eating the app like an idiot, I had to raise up and say, “could we please have some silverware?” That should’ve been thought about long before watching me eat like a rabbit. Not too long we got our silverware, but with sort of a shrug attitude of like “please don’t ask me to do things for you. I’m busy.” (Maybe it was a miscue, a mistake….ok, I can handle that…. We all make mistakes. Let’s call that water under the bridge…. For now) Mussels: The mussels themselves, were delicious! In this case, the coconut curried sauce, although on point with flavor profile, lacked an exciting pop from any angle. The coconut cream sauce was just, good. I feel a restaurant of this caliber, there needs to be an exciting take on something that is so similar throughout other restaurants. The mussels & radish also came out directly on top of each other, so we had two dishes in front of us at once. In fine dining, this is not the goal, allow your guest to appreciate what’s in front of them, one at a time. Porterhouse Steak: While always an impressive cut of meat, and always fun to see on anyone’s table, this is absolutely one of the hardest steaks to cook because of its size and what the animal ate before it showed up to the Grill. We asked for medium rare, and ultimately, that’s what we got. However, at the “T” end of the steak, about 1 inch in from the end was burned crisp, and as well, the center of the steak was blue. For fine dining this is truly not acceptable. • But honestly, I cannot lay this strange experience at this restaurant on the chefs. The food in general, was acceptable, however, not terribly memorable other than what I’ve mentioned in this review. Which is in this case wasn’t that great of a restaurant memory. The strange feeling of not feeling like a true guest but rather a table to be moved through the process of dinner, lied within our server. Our server was unfortunately incredibly impersonal. Was she having a bad day? What was going on in her world? I empathize, I truly do. And maybe on another day, she is a shining star, but the night we got her we didn’t feel very welcome to the restaurant the entire service. Understandably it doesn’t matter if you work at Chili’s or Little on Mountain, any server, at any restaurant can have a bad day. • So whats my overall elevator speech for Little? “Cool, but for the price compared to the experience, I'm not going back.”

    A hidden gem that is worth a visit. The chefs creativity with the menu is so intentional it creates the most beautiful and delicious meals. The cocktail menu is also creative and offers something for everyone. Fun Mocks are also available.

    Wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. Ordered the peppers, peaches and burrata, trout, eton mess, and a few other things between us. Zero proof cocktails were ultra refreshing. The eton mess (strawberry, ice cream, meringue thing) is one of the best desserts I've ever tried, and I eat a lot of dessert. The entire wait staff was welcoming, helpful, and attentive.

    One of the best restaurants in town. Very intimate, cozy atmosphere. This is high-quality food without being pretentious. The focus is on the ingredients and it shows.
