Excellent cocktails. Fun bar. Subpar seating for our special girls night out (super quiet room in the back). We were the last customers in the restaurant at 9:30pm on a Saturday night; we tried to relax while the wait staff tried to close up.

Food was good. Service was excellent. Our area was chilly and rather loud, but we had a nice evening.

We went for my Mom's birthday. We had a lovely table in a quiet room, which is just what we wanted. Three of us order the veal scallopini. It was very good, but heavier than is typical for that dish. I didn't have a chance to check out the rest of the restaurant, but it looked like there were areas that were quite lively as well as areas, such as ours, that were quiet and where we could easily hear each other. I would go back

Have been when food good, not great. Last visit everyone’s food great! Good pour on drinks. Very very cold. I am usually hot in restaurants, not this time ! Wooo it was very cold. Wanted to move to raised area, but hostess said she’d turn up heat. Got 2 sweatshirts and my coat out of car, my poor husband was still cold after several hours after we got home. Good thing for them we don’t have winter for more than a few weeks a year. Will keep this restaurant in our “go to spots “.
