A special occasion dinner with 2 other people. Our food was hit or miss, what was good was great, what was bad was disappointing. Service was nice but the server seemed rushed. Wine and beer list are both long with many great options. Would go back for apps and drinks nothing more.

Went there for a Valentine’s double date. Our waitress was excellent. All the appetizers were amazing and so were the drinks. I loved the Airborne. I had the duck special and it was very good. The ambiance was cozy and inviting. Parking was very difficult though and I almost thought we were going to have to cancel our reservation. Valet parking would be nice. We do hope to be back again.

The overall experience was really good. I just didn’t appreciate being seated next to the stairs that lead to the kitchen.

Service was spotty with limited assistance on ordering. Best feature was the Beer selection. Disappointed with the Bourbon choices. Very noisy and we were seated at a table directly under a speaker so we had difficulty conversing across the table. Food was inconsistent - shrimp and Brussels sprouts were over cooked, salmon was excellent.

Very hipster. Very hipster. The food was consistently good, and the service was commendable given the volume when we went.

We were disappointed as most of the menu items we liked including salmon, steak and fish tacos were not available by the time we got there for a 5:45 reservation. This was upsetting and the available menu was very limited. Our waiter said they were running out because they were closing for renovations. We would not have gone there if we knew this ahead of time but had show reservations and no time to go elsewhere. The main reason we selected this restaurant was for the salmon as we dont eat pork or much of the available options.
