My salad was disappointing nothing in it really but lettuce and two olives. Soup was good but very small portion. Still like to come here but many times disappointed. Beer selections very good.

We went for brunch, delicious mimosas and spicy tuna Benedict was great (a little too spicy with sauce on top) but delicious. Our server was kind and attentive to our needs. Very relaxed music and atmosphere loved it.

The pizza was great however the Gnocchi was out of this world. Drinks you have to try the smoked old fashined, not like the usual where the glass is smoking oh know it is another level and steeped. Just ask about it, it is great.

Food was awesome as always. Love the lamb meatballs and pizzas, lamb entree was delightful. Cant beat the Belgian beer collection and our waiter Robin was funny, charming, and attentive. Nice to see the place packed again!
