Dine Out Special
Was really good. Portion size is small but that is how it is with this kind of quality. A lot of it was locally found so I applaud their effort.

This was our first time here.
This was our first time here. Terrific food for those of us with eclectic tastes. The chef is from the Congo (DR) and serves a range of plates from seafood to soup. The heart of palm salad is great, the peanut soup was tasty and we had the tasting platter, which was a variety of items from the menu in a small tasting size. Delicious. The service was phenomenal.

My spouse and I both had the
My spouse and I both had the Chef's Tapas Tasting Plate. Each item was tasty, especially the African chicken peanut soup. This plate is listed under the tapas section of the menu, so it is understandable that I found that it needed to be supplemented slightly to make a complete meal.

Food was great, staff was upbeat and fun. Noise level increased as the evening progressed due to two large groups seated near us. Overall, i would say it was a good experience.

The BEST martini I've had
The BEST martini I've had for a long time. I'm glad we gave this a try through Groupon. We will definitely come back.

A little more light to see
A little more light to see the menu would be great. Food was outstanding and unusual. The beer tap was down and no offer of specials on bottles as a compensation-given draft was supposed to be $2.oo off.

The food was ouststanding and the service good. The ambience of the restaurant was cool and we enjoyed our dinner very much.
We shared a flatbread and all three in our party tried the tasting sampler (a sample of 5 dishes). The peanut soup is so delicious I would travel to back to this restaurant just to have a bowl of it. The food is imaginative and the presentation was beautiful.
The hoighlight was Chef Bongo coming out from the kitchen to say hello to us!! Would highly recommend!

Great food but pricey
We had 5 people and wanted to order 2 sampler trays and 2 extra dishes on the side. The waitress recommended us to get an order +1/2 of each item in the sampler instead... so we did that and ordered way too much food in the end. I felt she could've warned us of the amount of food we're ordering... the Peanut soup, lamb sliders and truffle oil fries were amazing. Everything else was good too, but didn't wow us. The price was a little on the pricey side.

Great for late night
Excellent food for late at night; varied tapas plus a decent selection of larger plates. A bit too noisy, but better than some. A few sidewalk tables.

Chef Bongo is amazing, the food was fabulous, creative and everything we had was special! Try the tasting plate, and don't miss the peanut out!

Sharing is Better
Loved the shared plate, just right amount of food for two. Nice strong ceasar!

I went for dinner with 2 friends this past Friday evening. I had the peanut soup, Heirloom tomato salad and the lobster cakes and they were all delicious. My friends said their meals were just as good. It was quiet for a Friday night. For the neighborhood in Kits this is a keeper. Service was excellent as well.

I would definitely recommend the Risotto balls....they would make me come back. Side note, not as impressive of a scene as I thought for this neighborhood. It was very tame and quiet...and it took a long time for our cocktails...when there was clearly only our order in queue. (the tables around us only ordered wine). But this chef is worth a second visit....

Peanut soup was fabulous and
Peanut soup was fabulous and the tapasampler plates were great to share. Bun with lamb slider was dry but the lamb was delicious. The saccontini pasta was wonderful - a really delicious mix of flavours and textures.
Service was attentive and friendly.

Girls night out
3 of us went on a Friday night and it was surprisingly quiet, but we all really enjoyed the food and ambience. It's got a nice modern yet warm feel to the decor, and a fireplace with sofas! The food was great! I had the tapas tasting plate, which was perfect, because I wanted to try all the things that were offered. The chicken peanut soup was delicious! One friend enjoyed the risotto balls, and there was also a lot of options for our friend with a serious wheat allergy, she was pleased with her tasty chicken dish.
There is lots of room for a group and also quiet corners for a couple. We'll be back!
