Love this neighborhood jewel! I've been coming for many years. I hadn't been in quite awhile because the last time I went the quality wasn't what it had been. However, happy to see that it is back to its previous excellent fare. Went there for the brunch with a few friends. We started with the little cream filled donuts - yum! I had the hash and eggs, and although the eggs were a little underdone for my taste, the hash was homemade, which I loved. Everyone I was with very satisfied with their food. I am looking forward to trying it for dinner soon.

We arrived late to our reservation and yet was happily welcomed. Our server was patient and guided us very well in making options and was super kind and happy to have us as her guests! I’m just bummed it took me over ten years to finally eat here, everything was delicious!

Meh, a fair experience at best. Not sure I’ll return. I thought the quality of the food in the presentation left much room for improvement tables were crowded restaurant was noisy service was a bit snooty, post was a jerk not the most pleasant experience.

The burrata and Kung pao calamari were out of this world. I had the lamb steak which was cooked perfectly with a yummy chimichuri and my friend enjoyed her bolognese. 10/10 will be coming back for more!

Super friendly staff- cute little place. Almost more of a bar casual feel on one side of the restaurant and then on the other was white table cloth dining so perfect for any type of meal!

Food was outstanding, the service was excellent, the value was very good. I have been a regular customer for years and was slightly disappointed a couple of times after the ownership changed hands. However the improvements over the last year have been terrific and both my friends and I have all agreed that 224 is back as one of our very favorite spots. We will be returning at an increased frequency.
