    This restaurant was incredible. From the minute you are ushered through what feels like a secret “speakeasy” door inside a shop, to the bid farewell from any staff that sees you leaving, we were completely amazed at the unique qualities of this place. The restroom has someone handing out soap and towels making it feel old fashioned and, I felt, more sanitary. The ambience of the interior is inviting you into a world of pure class with drooping crystal chandeliers and warm colored seats and floors. The food comes out in shareable courses and to say it is delicious would be an understatement of this quality of fare. The food was entirely perfect. All was cooked to perfection from the chilaquiles being packed with chili and pork to the thick cut steak that was dripping with juices. The kale salad was fresh and not overpowered by dressing. The corn ravioli was a favorite and the drinks were some of the best I’ve ever had. Try the Woodsman!!!!! Our precious waitress, Courtney, made such an effort to find allergy friendly dishes for my son and then for dessert helped us celebrate our daughter’s 18th. We had the Ferris wheel dessert and I’m telling you, this is the way to go! It had macarons, cake pops, Madeleines, and brownies. I had a bourbon shot milkshake that was small, but massive in taste! The music had such vibe and if you don’t enjoy a vibe during dinner, go earlier than 8, as the conversation level and music picks about around then! The whole evening was perfect. Not a single complaint about this restaurant. We can’t wait to come back to visit!!!

    My family and I dined here following my niece’s graduation. None of us had ever been here before, so we didn’t really know what to expect. We were all quite pleased with the food and our servers, Courtney and Daniel. They were very attentive and our food came out quickly too! All of the food was amazing, but I really loved the pizza and the grilled cheese dumpling with tomato soup. My only critique, which I won’t take off stars for, was that the bathroom needed to be cleaned. To say the ambience and food was as amazing as it was, the bathroom was a bit dingy. Overall, I’d recommend the restaurant though and we’ll definitely be back.

    We celebrated my Husbands birthday here and it was amazing. From arrival to departure it was a great experience. We made reservations for a party of 10 while we waited for others to arrive, we went to the bar and the drinks were amazing. The vibe and ambiance in the bar was awesome. Our full party didn’t show up so they were still able to seat us. Our server was great, the food was so flavorful and filling for myself. My husband is a big guy, he liked the food but the portion for him wasn’t enough lol. He had a wonderful time though, the people were friendly and I believe its the staff and the ambiance that set the tone. We will be returning again.
