We ordered egg white frittata and I have had way better in other places than here. Quantity as well as quality wise. I wasn’t impressed by food options for kids as well. This is definitely not a place to go as a family. Adult only place. Staff were very efficient though. Great customer service but food not so great.

I'm trying not to sound old her but the uncomfortable volume made it difficult to enjoy my evening. Concrete floors, plywood walls, metal chairs, hard surface ceiling. It was nearly impossible to hear our table mates. We moved to a booth and it was much better. The food was top notch but don't go here if you actually want to talk to anyone.

Our server made the whole experience fun and relaxing. I have a ton of allergies and he was helpful and vigilant to make sure everything I ate was okay. They had to make some tweaks to menu items and it still came out delicious! Would highly recommend. Could not have asked for a better experience and better food!

Service was terrific.
Food was mediocre- pizza smelled amazing, but was disappointing- flat texture, no flavor. Menu has some interesting offerings, but doesn’t seem to present a specialty.
Kind of sterile decor.

The appetizers and dinner pastas were wonderful. Service was excellent. Biggest complaint was the fact that the drinks from the bar were served in completely wrong glasses. Red wine came in glasses that would be considered water glasses anywhere else, and a martini came in a vintage style champagne glass. For the price of drinks, it doesn’t seem like a stretch to have them served in the proper glassware.

Were were very pleased that they were able to adjust and move us from the high-top table that they had substituted. One of our party was not able to accommodate a high top chair. This was accomplished without significant delay.

I really like the food here. But the service was terrible. I asked 3 times for ketchup and never received it. The waitress gave our table a lot of attitude. Very disappointing.

They have really good pizza, thin crust. I normally did not like thin crust, but theirs is amazing. We love the spicy sausage with honey chilli pizza, yum!! The cauliflower salad is also good. The only thing is they did not have kids menu, yes they said they can make customized to kids, but without price , I was not sure how much it will cost us.

I’ve been here a few times before. I’m not sure whether there was new management or what, but the food took forever to get out - over an hour from when we ordered.

Also, my sausage was undercooked-still pink. I like this place and always have for brunch, but something was amiss Sunday.

If I go to one more Dallas restaurant, that puts us in the back of their restaurant because we are not their target demographic, I will leave. I think this is called age discrimination and
it happens often downtown. Our charcuterie plate had four kinds of meat , maybe two inches in diameter, four small wedges of cheese, four crackers and a few other accoutrements.
And that warranted $25.00. When we asked for more crackers, our server took twenty minutes to deliver same and we had to ask twice. We were presented with a bottle filled
with water when we sat down and it was removed and not refilled. Main courses seemed to have the same basic red sauce, married to different ingredients. Serving sizes were more
small plate than entree size. Unfortunately, we hadn’t been back to this space since Charlie Palmer’s left. Maybe having the beautiful space reduced to unfinished plywood on the walls
just didn’t sit well. I was asked by the manager how we liked it and if she could make things “right”. And I replied we wouldn’t be back. The valet situation is odd. We dropped our vehicle
out front but had to retrieve it from the rear of the building. Odd. Restaurant suited for twenty somethings who will run up a large bar tab.

What an excellent restaurant I found through Open Table! My friends and I just arrived in Dallas and after a hard and long day of travel, we wanted a place to regroup. Great service and the food was lovely. We started with an order of calamari which the portion was on the skimpy side. But! I ordered the chicken parm which was one of the best versions I have ever had. It was served on a bed of broccoli rabe which was delicious. The portion was huge! There were two half breasts which I split one to share with my friends. The broccoli was perfectly done. I only wish I visited the area more often so I could be a regular customer. Well done!!

Love the overall industrial/contemporary look with pops of color. Tables and booths spaced nicely for private conversations. The service was good. The food was good but small servings for the price. Sodas were priced by the small can so refills weren't free. Valet parking is definitely a plus!
