It was my birthday didn’t acknowledge it at all. Which is fine but we were a big group and the waiter did a very poor job of getting us to understand the vibes and how to order abs such. But the food was goos will def come again and order takeout

Happy to be back and love the food but to be honest a little surprised at how close they were seating guests during covid-19. The plexiglass “separators” kept falling on our table also from the air flow or the guests next to us getting us to go to the bathroom.

Experience was outstanding. Don’t get discourage by their reservations 21 days in advance. Totally worth it! Food and drinks were amazing. Our server Ginna was attentive and great.

We sat way too close together for the pandemic, that I wanted to leave. Also food was not good - I barely ate it.

I was shocked to see tables that cleared not be cleaned with disinfectant. Quite obviously the table I sat at had not been wiped down with disinfectant either. The spacing between tables was also inadequate! Given we are in a pandemic — SHOCKING

We had an outstanding meal in a flawlessly designed space with friendly service despite the restraints of wearing a mask. This place is perfect for every day or would make an outstanding celebration destination. It was perfect!

The food is good and everyone was nice but they don’t have any sort of outdoor dining vibe. It’s literally picnic tables under a renovation site with no heaters. I’m surprised because in non-covid times their dining experience is so fun. I thought they’d bring more of that effort to an outdoor scene.

The grill menu options should be for one and should come with a side. Also if I order a dessert for a birthday ask if I want a sparkler or a regular candle or both...don’t just add it to the bill. If waiters or waitresses are changing an introduction is best. The bartender in the royal blue and grey 3 quarter shirt was the best!!!! The DJ played mixed music which was AWESOME!!!! He should include some soca and afro beats. Overall a good time 👍
