    It’s a fun place especially at the bar! We had 6 in the dining room and service was a challenge, food good. It is very loud or energetic as they say.

    Food was good. Expensive though. Ordered the chopped salad. Excited to try it because it said too many ingredients to list. It was sparse and plain. Disappointed with it. Those who ordered pizzas in our group made the best choice, price wise. Overall not sure we’d go back. We love to try new places to us. We checked the box here.

    Service not great this time, a bit slow. No offer for free dessert when it was my husband's birthday which we noted on the reservation and advised the server. It was really loud too. Food was great.

    Quite disappointing. My husband and I both had the "new" corn salad with chicken added as a protein. Salad was boring and somewhat tasteless. There was chopped romaine lettuce with just a few kernels of corn and a coating of oil (no detectable acid or vinegar or seasoning). Chicken was cooked to an inch of its life. Still a lovely place but food has really gone downhill the last few times we have been there. With the prices they charge, they must provide a good, consistent product. I hope they can find their groove again. Maybe time for a new chef? We won't be going back any time soon unless we start hearing positive reviews again.

    Love this restaurant. Been coming here for 7 years. They’ve had itemsnon the menu like the mussels, the burrata, the tiramisu that were replaced. Other new items are nice but not as great as a few years ago. I love the post covid remodeling. Overall a great value for a neighborhood local bistro.

    Seems like the finesse from kitchen was not there, the food was soso compared to what is normally tops. Chicken parm was way to thick, huge portions could be for the oldies but make it thin and the sauce was way to much garlic, it’s chicken parm not a garlic overload

    This is the second time in a row that I was very disappointed in the food. It’s seems to be going in the wrong direction. The salmon was very fishy and the chicken artichoke had no taste. Probably will not return

    Dined during Sunday brunch. It has changed with two noticeable added restrictions now: 1. $15 and $0.01 refills for one cocktail. If you decide to switch from a mimosa to a sangria, that’s another $15. 😳 2. No to-go containers. I understand this on the unlimited appetizers, but on the entree too? The waiter was blah.. service and attitude. Luckily, the live band made up for it with a great ambiance. This was likely my last visit.

    We were not as happy with our visir this time. Three of us ordered Salmon over salad...Salmon was room temperature at best. Salad was so overdressed we could not eat it. Ordered bread for an app, which never came. When our food orders came, we canceled the bread. Two of our party ordered pizza and they were good. Very disappointed.

    Dinner with friends. The food was excellent. My wife had the Salmon and loved it. I took a chance on the Eggplant Parmigiana and it was outstanding! It was very loud. Basically too loud to carry on a good conversation. We’ve eaten here many times and enjoy it. This time it was just a bit to loud.
