The inside is loud and trends towards cheesy. The back garden is lovely and great for a relaxed dinner. Server had no clue about the food and beverage. Bathrooms were a horror show. If you go, do it on the earlier side and sit outside.

This is just one of the coolest places I’ve had the pleasure of dining lately. My second visit and just as great as the first. Very accommodating service and the food/drinks are top notch. With the decor and vibe this place can be anything from everyday dining to a special occasion. And what ever you order, make sure and try the lollipop sprouts... not to be missed.

We had to wait 40 minutes for a table that was t even what we originally requested - if we had intended to wait that long for a table then we would not have made a reservation in advance. All the manager did was take ‘some’ of the appetizers off the bill for the inconvenience

Loved our server. She was friendly, energetic and when one of the meals was not brought out with the others she comped us for the wait. Now that’s great customer service.

The attitude on the hostess at the front desk really got us off to a rocky start, and I honestly felt like leaving within a minute of walking in. Between the eye rolls and her persistent questioning why we made reservations I felt pretty uncomfortable. Even after I told her that I was interested in small plates, salads or appetizers and drinks she continued with her attitude and quickly quipped “that tables are for dinner only.” I’ve been coming to Laurel Hardware for something like 4 years & it’s a neighborhood favorite of mine. But after last nights interaction it just made the place feel super cheep. Once we got past her our waitress was sweet and helpful which kind of turned things around.

The waitress was really nice, but we only saw her 2 or 3 times throughout our meal. She forgot our drinks and our food took much longer than expected.

This place is a gem. Laurel Hardware kept the original sign from when it really was a hardware store. What a surprise on the inside. Great mood lighting and it's very hip and fun. There is a fabulous "mezcal bar" inside with a seductive 1920s streamline decor and fabulous cocktails. The service was amazing. They made sure I was seated in the area I wanted and suggested some great starters to the meal. In the main restaurant is a vibrant bar scene and cozy tables for dining. The food and drinks are great. Super cocktails. I love the margherita bufala mozzarella pizza and the tuna tartare with chicharrones. Great service, too. Wonderful place for a date.

Saw great looking pizza when I ducked in one evening recently.
Dropped in for brunch with the wife.
Loved the outdoor inner courtyard!
Blood orange mimosa carafe was fun.
Bruschetta with burrata was nice. I enjoyed the distinctly charred bread. My wife found the charring excessive and the taste too bitter.
The bacon flatbread was a disappointment. We found the crust chewy. Our preference is for less density, more airiness, a la Mozza's pizza crust. I had hoped for something like it based on the appearance of the pizzas I had spotted there. We also found the top underpopulated, under flavored.

It is very noisy inside. This place is a scene. The food is good and the courtyard is lovely. Only pity is that some people need to screech and shout to prove how hip they are. Go early to avoid the scene if it’s not your thing.

Food and drinks were good but the place was over booked so we had to sit at the bar. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem but people were bumping into us and reaching over us all night trying to get drinks.

The food and drinks were good though a little overpriced we found. There was enough variation (from "just okay" to "delicious") that the prices seemed 15% too high. The short rib pasta was a highlight though the squid ink carbonara left us nonplussed. The mescal bar in front of the restaurant is a nice touch.

People are saying bad things about the service and I won’t give it 5 Stars just because that they serve the food with minutes apart from each order . My friend finished her seared tuna when my pizza was arriving. At the other hand our server Nadia was awesome , great smile , checking on us frequently and very nice all the time . I just had a great birthday party with my girls .
