Can I Bring My Own Wine?
Even though we have a diverse wine list, sometimes our customers want to bring in something special. As long as it's not on our list, that is OK. Corkage fee is $25.
Is Your Restaurant Kid-Friendly?
Please be mindful when bringing toddlers to the restaurant. We think before 6:00 pm is the best bet.
HIGH CHAIRS & STROLLERS:
We have 1 high chair. No high chairs are permitted in the restaurant on Friday or Saturdays after 5:30pm. For the safety and comfort of our diners and staff, strollers are not permitted in the restaurant.
We realize that happy kids mean happy parents. We can usually adapt a menu item for a child.
Are You Hiring?
Do You Have Gluten Free Options?
Of course! We are well trained to deal with food allergies. We have a menu at the restaurant that highlights which items are gluten free. We have real chefs cooking in the kitchen, and when possible, are happy to tweak an item on the menu to suit most dietary restrictions.
Is There a Dress Code?
As Annie & Daddy Warbucks sang: "You're never fully dressed without a smile!"
Who cares what you're wearing, on Main Street or Saville Row,
It's what you wear from ear to ear, and not from head to toe that matters!
Who Is the Cook and Who Is the Cork?
What Is a Small Plate?
A small plate is another word for an appetizer.
What Is a Large Plate?
A large plate is another word for "entree".
Do You Have Gift Cards?
Yes! They are cool looking and make a great gift. They are available in any amount and re-loadable.
Your Water Is So Cold and Delicious. How Come?
We use the Natura water filtration system. It's awesome. Through the use of two high-grade, long-lasting carbon filters, the system removes chlorine, surfactants, nitrates and active carbon chemical contaminants from water. Then, the water flows through a filtration system. This technology is the only one in the world that provides TOTAL IRRADIATION thus allowing Natura to reduce the bacteria and virus count to almost zero including the elimination of E.Coli and the coliform bacteria. Then, the water goes through a refrigeration system with ice in reserve. Allows the unit to dispense volumes of water at a constant temperature. We love it!
What Temperature Do You Store Your Wine?
Most of our wine is stored at a constant temperature of 58 degrees, and digitally monitered and alarmed. But depending on the type of wine, the serving temperature ranges between 40 and 64 degrees.
Serving temperatures vary. For example, we will get your sparkling wine or champagne to a crisp 40 degrees before popping the cork!
Do You Have a Happy Hour?
Every hour is happy here! But, we know what you mean: do we have drink and menu specials between 4 & 7, or something like that. We have only been open a few months, and started our hours at 4:30, but we didn't get too much of a bar crowd then. We would love to have happy people during the happy hours. If enough people request it...sure! Let us know! But for now, we have 30 different wines offered by the glass, and great priced appetizers for anytime.
Does the Chef Cook at Home, Too?
Chef loves to cook and mess up our kitchen at home and at work, but that's OK!
Can You Do Paleo Diet Items?
Sure! We will walk you through the menu
Can I Rent Out the Restaurant for a Party?
Yes! We have been hosting awesome parties on Sundays, and during the week before we open for normal business hours. We also have a new fenced-in garden area which is perfect for private al fresco dining, such as a "farm to table dinner" or an "octoberfest" beer party.
Why Did You Open in Coral Springs?
For a few reasons. One: We live here. We have a client base, we have been involved in the Parkland/Coral Springs community for 16 years. Two: Our town needed a place that was not a chain restaurant or bar. We wanted to bring to our town a place that was like our home; filled with color, liveliness, great food, fun people. Three: Coral Springs deserves a great place! Four: We envision Sample Road to evolve into something more, and hope to pioneer the rebirth of the area, bringing non-chain cool places to town!
