    When we showed up, a delivery driver was blocking the parking lot. That is the only complaint we had at not fault to the venue. This place was such a wonderful experience as soon as we walked in. The drinks are on the pricier side, but they are definitely worth the amount paid for them. My favorite drink was Cloud 9 and the Life Water. We had an array of plates that we really enjoyed. Our favorite was the Braised Short Rib. It was so decadent. Our second favorite item was the Spac Balls. My favorite was the salmon, and my dates were the tuna. We were also allowed to try the bao that was not available on the menu yet, but the chef allowed us a sample. It was delicious. The only wish is that it was bigger but still delicious. The garlic fries are good, but definitely overshadowed by everything else we ate. We are definitely going to add this to our regular date night spots. The service was a 10/10.

    Super yummy Italian and a good vibe, perfect for date night. Would have been even better if their cheap laminate tables were not extremely worn out and dirty. We asked for our table to be wipe down since it had so many spots and looked dirty. They were super gracious about it. After it dried down it showed up the same dirt and sports as before, must be because the cheap laminate is worn down. They really need new tables if they want to create a good ambiance and compete at this price point.

    We had a wonderful meal! We skipped the Chef's menu because we wanted the pork ribs and no substitutions are allowed. We had the ribs, the red snapper, garlic naan with fermented chili butter (!!), short rib empanadas (!!!), and the chocolate cremeux for dessert! We also indulged in some very delicious cocktails. The service was very good although actually a little much for us at times. Our server was a bit of a close talker and very keyed up. However, she did give us excellent service, we just prefer things a bit lower keyed. All in all, though, a wonderful meal and a great restaurant. A bit pricey considering the size of the portions offered but so delicious we left very happy. Cool atmosphere in East Austin!
