Loudest restaurant I’ve ever been in. Couldn’t even have a conversation with the person across from me.

The food was so fresh and amazing!! Drinks were good but a little on the odd side. When we did switch to just a regular Cosmo it was just ok. Limited beer selection but the food, ambiance and service made up for it.

Wanted friends to try the Chopped Salad and no one was disappointed! Menu can be difficult for non meat or pork eaters, though. Biggest issue is how noisy it is inside. Will probably wait till it warms up enough to sit on patio next time.

We arrived at 5:45pm for dinner and were in an area with a lower ceiling. We could talk easily at that point. By the time we were finishing our dinner, we had to talk a LOT louder to be heard. The food was excellent and our service was top notched. But it was not conversation friendly.

Everyone was extremely happy with their food. Everything was very flavorful, and perfectly prepared. Service was excellent. They were very helpful with my food allergies. The cocktails are inventive and delicious. My only issue is the noise level.

Fabulous food, great wine list and house cocktails. It’s a fun and vibrant atmosphere, great service. This is one of our favorite places. We always bring our out of town guests here and it’s always a hit. The chop salad and pork belly pastrami are wonderful starters. The scallops, short ribs and the meatloaf are our favorite entrees.

Always a great experience. From food to exceptional service, this is why I’ve been back a dozen times now. I craved the pork belly and salad for almost 2 years while away in DC. It’s good to be back home.

The ambience needs a lot of work - it felt tired and old. The service and food were moderate, at best. Not the vibrant unique dining experience we were hoping for.

I had the famous salad on the menu, which was absolutely the best salad I have ever had (I don't typically eat salad or like salad). I would definitely order it again. My husband had the snapper, which was cooked perfectly - it was delicious! The service was appropriate and professional. The ambiance was very nice, but not so fancy that I felt out of place.
