Food was just ok. Steak was over priced and the garlic noodles is just spaghetti with butter and parm cheese. Martini was really good though. It was very loud and we had a hard time talking to each other.

Unfortunately the staff was clueless ingredients and allergens. They didn’t know what gluten was. The server recommended a dish that was fried in a shared frier or a vegetable poke dish. When I asked the manager, he said was just as clueless. The chef was able to make accommodations. Other than this the restaurant and service were great. If I didn’t have a food allergy I’d go back.

Atmosphere is okay (noisy inside but looks nice outside), staff was friendly but if you're going for the food, just don't--can't stress that enough. We went because the reviews sounded great and we were excited to try several items on the menu but the results were consistently disappointing: salad was bland, lobster was chewy and the soup was gloppy and super salty. The wine list was boring and none of the food tasted fresh despite a great list of ingredients. We didn't even stay for dessert--typically my favorite part. Sad experience and would not go there again.

Server was very pleasant and enthusiastic, although clearly not trained. Had to ask for appy plates; mixed up items on bills even though we provided info up front about how to divide the bills; brought inappropriate utensils for dessert. Wait staff clearly had a hard time hearing us, as did our small group. Perhaps some fabrics to absorb the sound would be helpful. The food was unique, well prepared and nicely presented. While we all agreed we'd probably try it again, each of us is not recommending to others 'til we see if our uneven experience was isolated or a pattern. With some changes noted above, it could be a B'ham go-to place!

Excellent happy hour oysters. Well executed and interesting entrees. The desserts were delicious. The waitress was very nice but the waitstaff was a bit overwhelmed on a busy Friday evening.

This is a new establishment and doesn't know how to use open table. We booked outdoor by a fire pit and when we got there they didn't know we had reserved through open table and told us that they didn't do reservations for the the patio even though we were confirmed for outdoor seating. We had explain to them how open table worked.Service was slow and very unorganized. Very little choices for happy hour for drinks and food. Their web site was misleading on their dishes and what they were serving. The prices were way to high for casual dining. We received main courses before appetizers had arrived. One guest had to wait twice as long to get their food because they had messed up the order. Not a very good experience.
