    A disappointing meal. My cocktail, side to side, was great. So were the fries and the medjool dates. Other drinks, not so much. The “shareable” were almost impossible to share. Tuna tostada and the smoked salmon tartine had to be cut with difficulty. The shawarma fried chicken had no semblance of shawarma. It was very good, but more like popcorn fried chicken. The branzino was good, but it was plated with a single banana pepper and looked lost on the plate. My daughter, who was celebrating her birthday, mentioned she had gluten issues, but the server never seemed to understand. She had to ask numerous times, trying to be certain there was no gluten, but the server had to ask the kitchen each time. Then, there was no acknowledgement of her birthday, even though I put it in the reservation. Then finally, no coffee? I’ve never experienced that in ANY restaurant I have been in. On the whole, we regret the experience.

    We loved the place, the food and the atmosphere, but we found it very noisy. Difficult to talk to

    We had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation to be sat. Our server never checked in on us after we got our food, until after the food was gone to see if we wanted more drinks. Our server dropped the bill of at our table with no warning whatsoever that the kitchen had closed and the bar was going to close in 30 minutes. We had to ask if we could get another drink even though the bar was supposed to close in 30 minutes. The drinks we got were watered down. Server was nice but the service was one of the worst I’ve experienced in the city.
