Very poor service. Slow and unhelpful. We will not be dining there again and will not recommend it to friends.

Enjoyed an early dinner with a friend on a weeknight. We had the place to ourselves for the first hour and enjoyed attentive wait-staff, tasty small plates, and the World Series on the TV. Restaurant is upstairs above the bar in a surpringly large space.

Food is family portion but a majority of it seemed like it would only serve 2-3 people so we had to double our orders which was fine. However the service was extremely slow and forgetful

Someone wrote on Yelp review they were served burnt sisig. I was thinking prior to booking reservation here how could a Filipino restaurant ruin a signature dish? Well, turns out they can. Majority of us in our party has not tried Filipino cuisine before so we ordered sisig. When waiter came to ask us if everything was okay, we told him our sisig was burnt. They did not replace the dish, apologize or comp our bill. Waiter only said "I will tell the kitchen". So that was a big F for fail. Another review on Yelp called place quaint. We all thought the owner either ran out of fund/got cheap with the upstairs dining area. They certainly could use some major redecorating along with adding an AC upstairs. For the dinner, the adobo and garlic noodles were okay. The real highlight was the female bartender in the front of the restaurant on ground floor. She was friendly and made us felt welcome. Always nice to be greeted with a big smile with professionalism. Unfortunately, this place did not convince any of us we should seek out more Filipino cuisine.

Everything was delicious but it was so incredibly hot upstairs in the dining room. It wasn't very comfortable but the service and food were great.

Getting to the dining room you have to weave your way through a very loud poorly laid out bar. Our table was sticky and not leveled so it constantly shook. I pointed it out to the waiter and he tried to fix it but didn't really succeed. Our drinks were delicious and the food was decent. Would go back, but probably would rush back soon.

They have a very limited menu. We went on a Saturday night and they were out of most of the things on the menu. First we had to order things we did. It come for and even those were great. The long life garlic noodles was also just okay. Not a very great experience.

They try really hard--that's about the best I can say.
The service staff is sweet but not in the least bit professional. The drinks came long after the food and one of us didn't get his cocktail until we were all finished with dinner and ready for the bill.
The food was pretty good--we especially enjoyed the wings. The Brussels sprouts were too salty, the cigarillos were fantastic, cauliflower flatbread was made yummy by the fantastic curry sauce.
Did We enjoy? It was Ok.
Will we go back? Nope, too may good places to eat. Why go with 'just ok'?

I used to love eating here. My recent visit was disappointing. Got our orders wrong, food was lukewarm and did not taste good. Server gave us big serving forks as dining forks and did not give us any other utensils or napkins until we asked for them.
