    Celebrated Father's Day with family. The food, including chicken and salmon kabobs, lamb chops, halibut piccate and crab cakes were delicious and the service was amazing by Kieylar M. However, entrees were, in my opinion having eaten at many restaurants in Austin, over priced. $32.95 for two crab cakes that, although listed as "jumbo" were the size of two fifty-cent pieces. $24.95 for a salmon kabob which my 12-year old grand-daughter finished in 4 bites. Anyway, the food is excellent, so if you have the money go there and enjoy. Also the Basque cheesecake was very good, as was the date cake. Good cocktail selection, fair wine list and no national beer brands.

    Decent good, great ambiance. The service was slow. Our server was missing for long intervals and we had to frequently ask the other servers to send her back to our table. It would’ve been understandable if the restaurant was full & busy but it wasn’t.

    Great restaurant in a fab location. Staff were perfect, food was delicious. Music had me Shazam-ing!! Our jet lag made it feel a smidge loud. Pricing was on the higher-end for mezze but the quality was perfect. Definitely recommend and will return!
