Meh. Order the portabello "fries" appetizer. That was good. I had the brick chicken and it was meh. I also ordered truffle parmesan fries and I BARELY detected any truffle and scant parmesan.

"Fine; but not inexpensive"...that is the best way to explain our experience. Am unsure where this restaurant sees itself - no longer a farm to table/ fresh food experience, it feels like a hamburger joint that overcharges on the beverages? As a local, this used to be a go-to for us, but the menu, pricing and overall inefficinces of service (no silverware, ask specifically for ice water...get the water, no ice....then, ask for ice...crickets, then no soup spoon, etc) leaves this low on our list.

Great spot to take a break from shopping and people watch. Really enjoyed their Maple Bacon Old Fashioned, and LOVED the house made bacon maple donuts. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nice happy hour menu. We will be back!

Flat bread and hummus was excellent so was the happy hour burger, but rib eye meat flavor was lacking but the toppings made up for it.

Unique bacon maple glazed doughnuts. Even I, who don't usually eat bacon, like out very much. The fat of bacon is really dripped off, quite lean & not greasy at all.

However, the noise level is very loud and annoying at times. I guess it's holiday season!!

Didn't start off positive. After being seated, waited at least 15 min before anyone came to our table. They apologized, said the section was really busy that night. Then, our appetizer(which we didn't receive until our meal), was given to another table. That being said, an employee came to our table & apologized for the mix up & comp'd it. By the way, it would've been nice if he told us he was the mgr., etc. The Portobello fries with aoli sauce was delicious! A must try. Their specialty cocktails are really, really good. Despite the service issue, I'd definitely come back.

Overall our food was very good. The veggie burger was outstanding and everyone in my party enjoyed their food. The only letdown were the beignets, the tasted like fried, stale ciabatta bread covered in powdered sugar.

Pleasant experience but restaurant is noisy and sides with Market Fish were very underwhelming. More bread should come out at once with larger tables. Dessert was quite delayed. Bathroom paper goods were not well stocked. Waitstaff was friendly.

New menu from the last time I dined here. Ate outside where noise level is much more comfortable . Started with the mushrooms for ‘the table’ - absolutely delicious . Had the chicken - was told there were a lot of bones but that was not the case - excellent. We ended with caramel ice cream that was sensational. Was not expecting such a 5 Star meal and was very impressed. Cannot wait to go back.
