This place is a gem. I enjoyed every dish we had. The sriracha wings and rock tempura shrimp are absolutely delicious. The short rib is some of the best I've had anywhere. I've found my new favorite place.

Went for brunch a few weeks ago. It was exceptional. Not the same last weekend. It was good but not running back. Saw waitress twice. Eggs were cold. Oh well we didn’t hit it right

I was pretty disappointed, I wanted to take my boyfriend here after seeing really good reviews online. We went on a Saturday night, the restaurant was packed. It took us quite some time to actually have a server come over to our table to provide us with water. The cutlery was dirty, and our server kept disappearing, but, we she was tending to a larger party. It was uncomfortable, my boyfriend actually had to get up to go find a different server to ask for clean cutlery. The server was friendly, she was a younger black woman, but she definitely was not very attentive to us often being gone for extended periods of time, not clearing the table. Ultimately, I was just really disappointed. It's such a beautiful restaurant but the service made us feel more burdensome than welcomed. I wouldn't recommend a couple going on a busy day, you'll get ignored.

Unfortunately the host had a hostil attitude. I almost turned around and left. He did not even looked at me when asking me for my last name. The waitress though was great. My niece thought that has been the best and nicest waitress she has ever had

Great food and atmosphere but I feel like the drinks and dessert were lacking. However I would go again. Maybe the bartender last night was new and we'll skip dessert. There's really nothing special anyway. Just some gelato and cake

Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day a month and a half in advance and was put in a spare area that they made up which was cold and had to wear jackets while eating. Very disappointed as I have been here multiple times before. You would think a reservation made so far in advance would have first preference in seating in the main dining area.

We had gone here once before and had a good experience, however this past time we were very disappointed. First, we shared the Greek salad, and that was ok. The burrata caprese was very runny and the presentation was dull. Next we had the Margherita pizza and that came out cold. We asked the waiter to heat it up and he came back a few minutes later and it was warm, not hot. We asked for spicy sauce and it tasted like honey, definitely not spicy and again cheese was not good. Lastly, we ordered the grilled asparagus and it also came out cold and bland. We were served 5 meager pieces and we both laughed when the waiter placed it down on the table. At 9:30 they brought the check and didn't ask if we wanted coffee or anything else. We (wife and I) were very dissatisfied and disappointed with the poor quality of food and presentation.

Had 8:15 appt, arrived before 8 and had a drink and an app at the bar. Bartender was personable and attentive. Table became available before reservation but available table was not a preferred table so we continued to order dinner at the bar. Ordered Ahi Tuna which was delicious however instead of being paired with wasabi, which they ran out of, chef substituted with green avocado maybe hoping I wouldn’t know the difference.

I go often and service and food is usually very good. Clearly things have changed, food still decent but the service was very off. Maybe due to covid, however it doesn’t take a lot of brain power to know not to serve the main course when your guests are still eating the appetizers. On top of it while serving our drinks the bartender banged one of the glasses so hard it shattered across the table. Then never completely cleaned it up.

Staff is terrible with manager Matthew leading the way as the worst. No customer service skills at all. It’s a shame as the food is real good but will not return because of the staff.

Overall the food and service was very pleasant. However, we specifically went to this restaurant because it is advertised on Instagram to offer $12 bottomless brunch. There are also signs outside the establishment noting “brunch.” When we ordered and asked for the bottomless special we were told it was no longer an option and you actually have to pay $12 at least per drink. This is very disappointing as a customer as it was clearly false advertising and we were looking forward to enjoying a bottomless brunch.

We were rushed during our dinner. our appetizers were not even half way finished when the main courses came out. the server kept pressuring us to order dessert right after they cleared the table. when i said that we want some time to digest our food, he said that there was another reservation in 15 min. i replied that we were told there was a 2hr limit, and we had only been there for an hour and 15min. i understand that there are time restraints but that does not mean you have to rush us through our dinner.

This visit was during restaurant week. The appetizer portion was smaller than usual but everything else was the regular size. Each item ordered had tremendous flavor and cooked to perfection. It was a wonderful dining experience.
