    while the food presentation was lovely and so many things looked good on the menu, nothing tasted very good! many items needed salt, or some sort of flavor, and the flavor profiles of other items didn't fit with the description. disappointed b/c it's such a cute space!

    Very disappointing Thanksgiving dinner! Food barely warm, presentation unappetizing: 2 slices of turkey breast on a cold plate, dry flavorless stuffing and ice cold apple tarts for dessert. Great waitstaff but will not return or recommend.

    This was their first year doing a Thanksgiving service according to the waiter. We both had the crispy skin turkey breast and it was outstanding. The pris frix menu came with a choice of starter - soup or salad, we had one of each. The squash soup was wonderful (per my husband) and the salad had a great fall feel to it with lots of goat cheese, nuts, cranberries, etc. The sides were mashed potatoes (delicious), classic herb dressing (so light, flavorful and fluffy), and cranberries (hubby loved it). You could choose between brussel sprouts or roasted carrots - we chose the carrots. They were so delicious. Dessert was a choice between a pumpkin or apple tart. I don't eat dessert, but we picked one of each. The hubby loved the pumpkin tart and the apple tart is waiting in our fridge for a late night snack. Service was great and the restaurant has great ambiance. Highly recommend!

    We arrived at the restaurant & had to inquire twice at the bar before we could even get someone to speak with at the host stand. The bar staff was dismissive, at best, seeming to think that guests left waiting without so much as an acknowledgment was reasonable. Once finally greeted, the host indicated that there was a wait, despite the fact that we had a reservation & there were empty tables. Other guests left after 30 minutes past their reservation when they still had not been seated. We waited until 35 minutes passed our reservation with no follow up from anyone. We decided not to stay but unless we wandered into the dining area to hunt someone down, there was no one to inform of that decision. We tried calling after we left, hoping to at least tell them we wouldn’t be staying, but after ringing 17 times with no answer, we gave up. Do not recommend. Would not return.

    For a higher end restaurant, our experience felt like a diner. Out of stock on just about every bottle of wine I mentioned - server did not mention this until I ordered. The server broke wine cork in the bottle and tried pushing it down into the bottle and poured a bunch of cork into the wine. Low staff, but it wasn't busy at all for being a Saturday - service was very slow and unprofessional which is incredibly confusing. Buratta salad cherry tomatoes were overly salted, along with balsamic. Squid ink risotto with octopus was immensely overcooked - might as well have been day old black rice repurposed. NY Filet was overcooked and overall low quality meat for being $40+. The restaurant from front of house to back needs an overhaul, already. Immensely disappointed for a $200+ meal (with wine) for two...on a Saturday night.

    The location and restaurant itself are definitely eye candy. We loved the atmosphere and the attentive and friendly service. The food was good. However, if you are a picky eater it will be difficult to find a few dishes to order. Most items either contain nuts or shellfish and I liked neither. We had the meat and cheese platter which was delicious. The bass was a little hard and not as flaky and soft as we would have liked it. I had the Kale salad which was tasty but I think the restaurant can work on their presentation and selection. It was also very very cold in the restaurant.

    The short rib was shredded beef pressed into a rectangle. I can't think of any reason why you would serve "short rib" as a shredded beef block except that it's easy to make in advance and reheat.
