Good food and wait service! This was not our first time so we knew what to expect as far as noise level. However, the after work bar scene on a Thursday night is very loud. Our table was close to the bar and we were glad it was large enough for us (2) to sit side by side. Otherwise, we would not have been able to have any conversation at all. Overall good vibe and good food.

I’ve dined here several dozen times and it used to be astounding. Over the years the quality has decreased. This most recent time was for Valentine’s Day and I don’t know if it was bc it was a fixed menu churning out dishes for quick turnover or if they’ve just gotten lazy, but the menu was in inspiring and the meals were over cooked. I love the beehive but I’ve been very disappointed in their kitchen the past few times. I gave up when I ordered a “chocolate mousse” and I received a hard chocolate cake the size of my shoe that I could stick my fork in and it stayed standing. I would absolutely go for a drink and great jazz in awesome ambiance but until something new happens in that kitchen I would recommend going anywhere else for the money you are gonna Spend.

We had come once before a long time ago but it was later at night and very chaotic and noisy, so we wanted to try it for actual normal dinner! They do have live music quite frequently so if that's not your thing, inquire ahead. The server was very laid back and friendly and easy to relate to, and the food was very good! The farro salad appetizer was our favorite! We would like to come back again to try more of the menu!

Got really sick from the food. Should have looked at the menu beforehand.

Eclectic crowd. Food was good but salmon portion was small for the price. Staff was nice.
