Good service, everyone was spaced out which I like, not just becuase of COVID
Noise level was high due to a large party but that was to be expected and our server did apologize.
Food was really good, very fresh and presented really well
Keep up the good work!

Eh, it was okay. It used to be amazing, but now pretty average. This time, service was rough. It was 20 minutes after seating before anyone took drink orders. Took about 20 minutes to get the check after requesting it. We would of stayed for dessert, but we were there for 2 1/2 hours as it was. Could of been cleaner. The paper disposable menus (for Covid) were splattered with food, obviously being reused. Walls and floors tired looking, with scratches and soiling. Noise from other parties seemed to travel easily, making talking at our table difficult at times. Food was good. Fair value for money.

We had a nice dinner outside. It was a bit cool but obviously that was not their fault. The drinks were good and everyone enjoyed their meals.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was perfect for an intimate anniversary dinner and the service was outstanding. If I could give out some kind of Oscar-esque award to the waiting staff, I would most definitely give it to Jeffery.

In general, the food is very good. I think being a thai restaurant there are things they are better at than others, for example their curry is probably exceptional compared to their steak. The special for the night was a bone in cowboy ribeye which I gladly ordered and was disappointed when I tried it and it had 0 flavor. It was $75 and for the proportion it was good but the flavor was so subpar I almost asked for sauce to dip it in.
Their dessert is awesome and honestly my favorite part for going there.

Wonderful evening. Started out with Matt at the bar. Sooo friendly and soooo into making drinks. Guy loves what he does and it shows. My favorite bartender ever. Had a fabulous dinner outside under the stars. Sue was our server and she couldn’t have done a better job. Food was awesome as always.

Service was as expected, impeccable. The corn and crab soup was a perfect blend of flavors. The swordfish in the bistro sauce was delicious and perfectly cooked. Wine choices were good.

Hello I made a reservation on Saturday and was seated outside near a very loud party. Our waiter took our drink order but never returned with the drinks or to take our food order. We ended up leaving since the service was not good and the noise level from the other party was very uncomfortable.

We sat in court yards which was better tables in from as they were close street
Food was outstanding
We were lucky they still has the $35.00 special like Nyc restaurant week
Good selection some with surcharges
But that that high
Dessert not included were worth having
Highly recommended

I had dinner with a friend for restaurant week. We had spring rolls, dumplings and the duck for our main course. The Stiletto for Dessert was the perfect ending. We also ordered a bottle of wine. Everything was fabulous, service was just right and with a perfect night (we were seated outside) we were able to relax and talk without feeling rushed. I’d recommend this restaurant and we will be back.

I wouldn't sit in those seats again. We were seated at the far end on West Jefferson Street near the parking garage. The flies were everywhere, and the trashcans just down the sidewalk weren't what we were hoping for. The filet mignon on the dining weeks menu was very small for a filet. I will stick to their Asian food as that is much better. The steak wasn't seasoned very well, and was cooked medium not rare. First less than perfect meal I've ever had there. It's not cheaply priced but the experience wasn't ideal for the money we spent.

It was too noisy in the bar area with some obscene conversations from inebriated bar patrons. The language was vulgar and loud with no regard to other diners or the fact children were present

Lovely time. Went for Dining Week and a birthday. Dinner was fantastic, as were the desserts. They warn a lot about the spice level, but it isn’t actually too bad.

During these challenging times of social distancing I know it’s tough to have enough seating but they tried to seat us next to the trash cans outside on a 85 degree day. So i requested a different table and they did change our table. Then I received my menu and there was rice stuck to the back of it. The waiter got us drinks and took our order. He brought the courses one by one then you didn’t see him again Until the next course. The food was ok but not great. I had better curry meals from a shopping center Thai restaurant won’t be going back.

The food was excellent. I have never had a green curry that was that much full of flavor and had such a nice burn that wasn't ridiculously overwhelming but could absolutely make you feel it in your face. The service didn't seem to be absolutely on point that evening, but it may have been due to a miscommunication by me in the use of my napkin and putting on the side which made the bussers take all my silverware before I got my food. The decor was nice, it would have been great to eat inside, but the ambiance outside wasn't bad. I'm sure it would have been even better had we stayed longer and got to see the overhanging lights when it got dark.

Paying 30 bucks for pad thai is outrageous. Especially the portion was small. They had the dinner price menu for lunch. Never going again.
