    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We had reservations at 5:30. Our service was very slow and unimpressive. The woman did not have the people skills to serve customers. She did not smile or really speak to us. My wife's salad was very uneventful. Expensive for just lettuce and a few tiny peppers and red onions. I did somewhat enjoy my hamburger since it was cooked to my specifications. Very very noisy. Acoustics are not suitable for diners. We sat near the bar and the noise spilled over into the dining room. Beer was more expensive than 90% of all other places we have been to, even in Portland. We would not be inclined to return at this point. Thank you for wanting to know though.

    A litle hard to find on the 3rd floor, could use better better signage at the elevator, but the menu is great, the beer selection is awesome and wines are large pours, not skimpy. We had the pizza with that 150 year old sour dough starter, definitely one of Ashland's best. THe bacon jalapeno mac and cheese is very good although it could have used a bt more heat from the peppers. Definitely a place to go back too!!

    We had made a reservation for nine but when we got there the table had not been set up for us. The onion rings were great as was the tomato soup. My Caesar salad lacked flavor; I could hardly taste the dressing. The lettuce was limp and not particularly fresh. I could see brown where the knife had cut it. The service was very nice. it's definitely a neighborhood place. This was the second time we had been there and I don't think we'll go back again.

    I've eaten here a few times. I've always ordered Gluten free dishes (pizza, no meat burger etc.) and they've been OK, nothing fantastic. The groups I've gone with seem to enjoy the food off the regular menu, but no one raves about it.

    We always love the atmosphere at this bar and restaurant. It feels vibrant and fun and the mood is contagious. The food is great, especially the pizza. We want to try the sourdough pancakes for brunch sometime. We hear anything sourdough there is great and we can believe that based upon the sourdough crust on the pizza.

    Food was very good. Wait staff friendly and helpful. The location right downtown but up on the third floor meant nice views. But really very loud.

    We made a reservation through Open Table for 7:30 and it was confirmed. When we arrived just before 7:30 we were told that they could not accommodate us for at least a half an hour. Since we were tight on time and could not wait we left.

    Had a good table by the window and a view out over the downtown Ashland area. Service was very good; our waiter was attentive without hovering - and it was a busy night. We shared a salad send a pizza. Tried their featured pizza the had a white sauce with bacon and chicken. It was very good. Street parking can be a problem, but we ended up right out in front.

    The pizzas were uninteresting, the Ceasar salads ordinary at best. The signage was virtually non existent making it difficult yo find. The entry into the dining area was uninviting made worse by the giggling hostess. The air condioming was too cold perhaps because it was trying to service the entire dining area and bar. The service was cheerful and attentive. We would recommend to friends to put on their must list. Must not dine there.

    This was a fun place to eat with a lively atmosphere. I had a mushroom hamburger and my husband had a golden blue burger. Appetizer was popcorn with basil and white truffle salt .

    This is a fun new place! We were impressed by the 16 beers on tap and 8 wines on tap, the best onion rings we've ever eaten, and amazingly good pizza based on that 150-year old starter. Fun - will recommend to friends, and this is now on our must-go-to list whenever we are in town.

    It's very clear this restaurant totally "gets it." Warm, friendly welcome and service, great food and lovely decor (including some wonderful stained glass windows and other authentic items brought from Europe). The pizzas are delicious, with a yummy thin crust made from starter they brought from Italy, no less. The salads are huge and the popcorn with herbs and truffle oil is to fabulous. They only opened recently, so haven't had a chance to try other items on the menu, but there are lots of them we're hoping to try very soon.
