    Excellent food for a bar. It really doesn't feel like bar food, it's fresh ingredients and prepared in a unique way. The vegetable tart is phenomenal! The only downside is it's very loud, but it is a bar too, so I guess you just have to be prepared for it.

    Other than every menu item having an "aioli" sauce on it, the food was great. We ordered the special and a popular appetizer, which both were sold out. That was disappointing. The draft beer selection was excellent; however, extremely over-priced. I would recommend the Scotch egg as it was fantastic. Everything else was just enjoyable, but not special.

    The food was quite good and their beer list is incredible. Parking is impossible in this neighborhood, so be prepared to either valet or take a cab/public transportation. The service was pretty slow considering the place was full, but not packed, but since it was date night, I really didn't mind.

    The place was great!!! It is located on a side street so at first we thought our GPS was giving us bad directions... Once inside the place was unique and filled with a friendly, energetic crowd. The service was outstanding!! The choice of beers were excellent!! The food was mouth watering good!! I would highly recommend going off the beaten path for this one!

    very nice craft beer list! I came looking for that, my only disappointment was that the most rare beers listed were gone. Service was a little overwhelmed by the Sunday night crowd.

    The beer selection is great but it was so loud inside the overall experience was terrible. Also note, they don't take reservations for outside so even though there was a table available on the patio we told we had to take the inside table since we reserved it - although there was no mention of this when we booked. Food is decent but service was super slow.

    Don't walk past Small Bar, walk in. This restaurant features an extensive beer selection and yes, even some wine...all of which are outstanding. Make sure you grab some food...the scotch egg, fried cheese curds and mushroom on brioche are stellar. No dessert however I found finishing my night with a glass of cava was all the dessert I needed.

    Great beer list. The food, however, is a little too rich. We won't be going back. It seems like a great place to watch a soccer game though.

    Great casual date spot. The food was great and the cocktails were unique and quite good. It was crowded and noisy, but the energy was good. The staff was friendly and the service was prompt.

    We were there pretty early on a weeknight so it's hard to say how energetic the place becomes as the night progresses. The food was great and the waiter even better. We'll be back.

    Small Bar has the best hamburger. It might even be the best hamburger I've ever had! The ambiance was very good. A great place to chill and enjoy all the beers they have and the great food! Service was OK but the bar makes up for it!
