Bonnie G., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on April 2, wrote, "The quality of every ingredient was fresh, crunchy, crispy, melted, just-made in their on-site massive hearth that's like a piece of art. The things to get: the cheese bread with egg and cheese, the Georgian chicken soup with ridiculously tender chicken, cilantro, shallots, the pork and beef dumplings. Can't wait to come back here and try the veggie dishes and mains."
And Yelper Zare R. added, “Georgian cuisine so divine! Great ambiance, great wines. If you like to try new things this is your place!”
