    The chef seemed to be having an off day, I would say. The food was a bit too salty and nothing that would make a foody like me go back for food. The ambiance is great and the servers were amazing!

  • I came to DL for my bday party.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/5/2012
    I came to DL for my bday party. Couple things you have to know before you get there... 1) Party over 10, you will have to create a prefix menu. They don't want to mess up the kitchen order 2) Limited seats. Max 44 chairs 2) After 10, tons of ppl come for the rooftop bar at 3rd floor. Make an extra reservation for the rooftop. Then you can get in without being line up. 4) Their drinks are on the expensive end. $6 beer, $13 cocktails. ok... my experience was very good there. Food was great, especially the chicken meatball!! Yum. The most amazing one I had. The restaurant manager was very helpful. We got to have $20/2hr open bar for our dinner. Do the math, 2 cocktails, your money is back already.

  • A very strange place indeed.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 5/4/2012
    A very strange place indeed. It took over 30 minutes to get our drinks. When we did, mine wasn't even potable. The atmosphere is like a lost puppy looking for a look that it doesn't quite capture. Great location, great bones, missed potential. Maybe I was there on an off night.

  • The food was really tasty
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    The food was really tasty and it's all served small plate style so it was great for a group. The service was pretty bad. Our waitress forgot a few of our dishes and took forever. The place seemed a little cheesy, but it has a great corner location open on both sides. It seems a little bridge and tunnel, but the food definitely saved it.
