Wonky internet app required for ordering drinks and food. I wasted so much time on my phone trying to order bunches of drinks and food. Not bad if you want something simple quick without much human interaction.

No Reservation is required. There is a sign saying “Please seat yourselves.”

The service was quick given it was a Friday night and we were ordering pizza and cocktails before a show nearby.

Highly recommend going for a couple of drinks before walking over to a concert at August Hall.

We came here for brunch on a Sunday. It was very quiet and we were a little put off by all the TV screens showing football, but in the end it was fine and not at all loud or rowdy. They have a fireplace close to the front door which I didn't spot until we were leaving, otherwise I would have sat there. So cozy! Food was good and they have good selection of drinks, including some interesting draft beers. Friendly service, although they need to sort out the table numbers for the online ordering (orders are placed via the Toast app after scanning the QR code on the table - very common these days and we prefer it). Overall, I'll definitely be back.

No vaccine checking no mask requirement. Food and wait staff were fine but felt like it was the place you could go without being vaccinated.

Service was good, food seems to be not quite as good as it was.
Not a fan of the phone ordering thing, but I understand the need. But you’d think that the order would be correct, it was not, though it was quickly rectified

Kind of interesting experience - you order and pay all through your phone and just have servers bring your food! It was fine just not expected. Also no more happy hour ;(

It's a good place for casual dining, food was good and it was value-priced. The only downside was we were seated adjacent to a very loud table. There were many other tables available, so we should have asked to be moved, so that's on us, not the restaurant. I'd go back again.

This place is great. The cauliflower and the craft were super! And the burger and fries...perfect. They didn't have fried pickles back on the menu and I can't wait to eat them again.

Ended up leaving, would never support a place that discriminates for choosing what you want to do with your own body and doesn’t support customers freedoms. There were only 10 people inside, wonder why!!! Ended up finding a local up beat bar, had a blast!

I had the buffalo cauliflower and the fish tacos. The cauliflower was very good, the fish tacos were alright. I was here on a Wednesday night and it was not busy at all, I think COVID is still affecting things. The people and servers were attentive and nice. I will probably give it another try when thins pick up.

Burger nicely rare as ordered. Fish and chips tasty, not greasy, though cod size a bit stingy in view of the size of the burger. Both plates had fries that were exceptional.

Appetizers were good and menu has good options. Service wasn't the best. Our server was rude and kept rushing us. She stood over my shoulders while I signed the receipt which was invasive.

Very loud restaurants. It's more of a bar than a restaurant. I could barely hear the person sitting across from me. We sat there for about 15-18 mins before we met our waiter. The drinks were fine. The food was another story. Lacks flavor, any zest. The fries were cold and old. The chicken sandwich and fish and chips were just okay. I don't recommend and would probably never go back. Too many restaurants in the city that are better.

We went there Friday night for drinks and had a great experience at the bar. Good service, friendly bar staff, good happy hour prices. Decided to try it for brunch on Sunday. Great food but it took forever for us just to get the waiter’s attention. He finally came over and although he was very friendly, it took forever to get our drinks and once we got our food he never came back to check and see if we wanted refills or if everything was all right with our meal. The people next to us got there after us and he walked right past them even though they had their menus out and obviously should’ve been asked if they wanted drinks. The couple behind us waited forever for him to come and take the bill with the credit card. The customer finally put it on the bar to get someone’s attention. I would go back there again because the food really was delicious but the one waiter needs to work on his customer service skills! Not good!

We needed a place to eat good food before a show and our original plan was set all akimbo when the ferry from Angel island didn’t work at 3:15. This place had great food (vegetarian could even find a few things) and the server was nice. The hostess was not there when we arrived and seemed less than diligent about her duties, but the rest was great. I would recommend.

Good place for beer and bar food. Pretty crowded on a Tuesday night, reservations are recommended. Took a bit of time for our server to show up. The food - veggie burger and salmon showed up quickly. We asked for water and had to remind them, which came towards the end of the meal.

The salmon we had was delicious. But it is mostly a bar menu so "non-bar" food choices are limited. That said, it's a fun place and a good choice for that area of downtown.

The waiter made this a hard place to like. Avoided eye contact when we were looking for him and told us to hold on when wanting to get more drinks. The food was great but definitely need to hire more people.

Staff was friendly; however, it was very noisy for those mature people who are hard of hearing as well as seeing. I had a hard time seeing the menu. I had to tilt the menu toward the very small dim lit votive candle and I had to tell the server that we would like to order dessert. Other than that we really enjoyed the meal and service. We will definitely return back if we are staying at the Hotel Nikko.
