    I thought my meal was very good, I ordered 3 small plates on a stick , Lamb, Mushrooms and Pork they were all seasoned perfectly and were tasty. My only critique, the hostess stand was not manned and we waited over 5 minutes to be checked in for our reservation and were not greeted or welcomed to the restaurant by the host and our server was slow to take our drink order but fairly attentive there after.

    Overall very good food and service. Not sure if the food lives up to the cost. Again, food was very good, but I would expect something more for the cost.

    Great food, lively vibe, friendly service. Esp good are the burgers, salmon and salads. However, it’s very loud. It’s in a basement, the sound bounces off surfaces, the music is loud, and the tables are large- you may have to yell to the people sitting across from you. One of the reasons we came was for the excellent burger - but they were out. Of burgers. We tried two desserts this time and do NOT recommend. The “smoked chocolate bread pudding” tasted like someone’s week old frying pan scrapings (actually, more like someone got too heavy handed with the liquid smoke). I had just said “it smells like bacon, someone must have gotten the pork belly nearby” but it was the dessert. I couldn’t get a forkful down. The Lime pavlova was a slab of merengue with a lime basil goo on top and strawberries. I ate a bunch of it but the other people with me thought it tasted like chalk and was bad. Also, skip the coffee.
