Favorite little gem in Williamsburg. I also have a nice time & the food is always in point! This time was for our anniversary & it felt special. Service was sooo nice & accommodating even when there was a loud dinner party going on next to us. While the dividers were necessary, our table felt closed off & intimate which was perfect!

Ambiance was very nice until they sat another couple right next to us and the table was about a foot away with plexi glass that was as long as the table but didn't cover us at all. There were plenty of table open so I don't understand why they decided to sit us right next to eachother when we are supposed to be at least 6 feet apart. Anyway besides that the food tasted good. It was quality and quantity. But the service really lacked. My server was on another planet. He placed our drinks at another table and when he looked up and made eye contact with me he realized his error and proceeded to take the drinks off the table and bring them to mine. Now I didn't say anything bc the couple still had their masks on but come on that shouldn't happen or at least play it off and make the customer think you got them new drinks.

We were seated fairly on time and the food was okay. We did have to ask the bus boy to re-clean our table as he initially wiped it down with a dry rag after the previous group got up. We asked for disinfectant to be used to which they complied and then placed down paper place mats which had we not asked, probably wouldn't have been done.

Enjoyed the food but thought the waiter was rude when we asked to order another drink when the people on both sides of us were continuously ordering drinks. There were also tons of open tables but our waiter told us we couldn’t order anything else. Odd since it means he would have gotten a bigger tip? It was off putting and probably won’t go back.

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants in a Williamsburg - They never disappoint! The atmosphere is equally as amazing as the menu. I’ve come for brunch and dinner - you can’t go wrong with either! My favorite dishes would be both of the eggs Benedict’s as well as the lamb meatballs!

A gem of a restaurant. The food is consistently delicious, the periodic updates to the menu always give us something new to look forward to and the service is always lively and friendly. Definitely a favorite in the neighborhood, and it’s great to see them making the most of the current circumstances.

Food was okay, some meals were better than others in the group. Very expensive for what you get. Cute place with great, covid-safe out door dining. Just a little too expensive for quality/service

Definitely going back again!! My wife and I have lived in Williamsburg for many years and have visited many restaurants in the area. We have eating here twice in the last month and this is definitely our favorite restaurant in Williamsburg. All their pastas are great. Mushroom appetizer & the squash appetizer were delicious. Slight changes to the menu each time makes it nice to be able to return more often.

The only thing separating people was this little plastic standing partition. Not much social distancing measures being put into place. Service was a little slow but the food as always was phenomenal.
