Beautiful setting for outdoor dining and the service was great. The brunch food was ok, somewhat bland. I split the summer squash eggs Benedict and the frittata with my boyfriend and both were a bit disappointing.

As always - great drinks and atmosphere. Felt like server was rushing us, kept asking to take orders for food while forgetting drinks and water that we already ordered. Very over priced food considering the quality. Ordered roast chicken, cooked perfectly but horrible presentation and skimpy, cheap side considering the price and the effort put into other aspects of the restaurant. Would go back only for drinks.

Disappointing as we were celebrating my daughter’s 30th birthday and I had requested the patio on Open Table. The hostess acknowledged her birthday; however we were seated downstairs with little ambiance. And it was a perfect summer evening. We could have waited 45 minutes or so for patio but one person was a taking an exam the next morning. Our bill with tip was $300 so seems pricey for the value. Service was good though.

The fact that they charged market rate for steak frites, and it ended up costing $42 is absolutely ridiculous. It was a decent N.Y. strip on over baked potato chips. That’s it. $42 for that???And why use market price and not indicate what the cost? It wasn’t a fresh caught fish. Disappointing

Two orders of short rib skewer. Both were tough and bore no resemblance to short rib.
Asked for a 2nd menu and waiter looked perplexed that we might want a menu for each diner. Busing personnel couldn't wait to clear plates.

I was rudely told by the waiter that she needed the table back after I was in the restaurant for a while. When I reserved a table, there was no specification of time limit. I felt rushed to finish my wine, as she already had the bill with her when she came to tell me she needed the table back.... What if I wanted to order more food or more drinks? Not going back there.
