    The server was attentive and very nice. Apps were good, but one of the apps was not hot, and the arancini needed maybe a side of sauce. For our main meal I had chicken & waffles and my husband had the gumbo, both dishes were very good. With my dish, I wish that there would, have been a side of honey butter also. Can't rave enough about the expresso martini, delicious! We would return for another meal.

    We had a really good meal with quality food. We enjoyed the brussels sprouts and spinach and artichoke dip that was actually made from real artichokes instead of frozen cans stuff. For entrées we had a combination of burgers, chicken, and waffles and a hanger steak which was excellent. They seem to take pride in the food they serve and the controls were also very yummy!

    Nice informal ambiance. Some very imaginative drinks, and they're willing to adjust for guest's taste. Highly recommend the street tacos and Buffalo Brussels sprouts. Mexican street corn was the most flavorful I've had. Not to be MISSED!

    Our party booked on Open Table, having never experienced this restaurant before, but looking for a last minute reservation for a Saturday. Overall, we had a decent experience. Our server was very good, and that in itself counts for a lot! Unfortunately, the restaurant is not really separate from the bar and the noise level was really high, making conversation difficult. The food choices and presentation were creative, but the food itself was fine, but lacked depth and flavor. I would suggest sharing some photos of the bar (with TVs) on Open Table so that the overall layout and ambience could be better judged on review. Would I recommend or go back? Yes, if going to the bar. Possibly not, if going to the restaurant.

    Really enjoyed this place. It was a Sunday evening so the place wasn't busy. Our server Emily recommended few dishes. They were all excellent. The portions were so huge that we couldn't finish them. Emily's service was awesome.

    We really enjoyed our dinner. The wait was reasonable, but it was also a quiet night there. We ordered arancini, baked wings, shrimp tacos, chorizo/chicken tacos and street corn. The shrimp tacos and street corn were especially good. We’ll definitely return!

    Excellent food, good recommendations from waiter on beer and cocktail choices. I was there midweek and the place was pretty empty. The ambiance felt lacking, but we loved the food and plan to go back when it’s a bit more “hopping” to see if that improves the ambiance/vibe. Definitely would recommend it!!

    Food was pretty mediocre, for a place that presented as a gastropub. Steak ordered medium rare but came out well. Service was friendly but very slow. An app we ordered never came out, and the beers that came were mixed up. Not a horrible experience by any means, but not one I’d rush to recommend either.

    Music was on loud side so conversations were not so pleasant. Air ducts were placed above each table and cool air was constant on you. Food was good, and there was a variety.

    After a few visits for cocktails only we decided to have a dinner at BluAqua. The staff is exceptional - very friendly while providing great service. Our meals and appetizer were great and the portions are very generous. We highly recommend the fried green tomatoes! Give BluAqua a try - you will not be disappointed.

    Food was great. My martini was fantastic with the elderflower. I had a salad an appetizer and I had to get a doggy bag... the salad was huge! Decor was fun. I always think of tapas as a little more intimate. But as a restaurant we both wanted to go back!

    The two of us were placed by a loud, for me, party of eight. I struggled at times to hear my wife. We won't be going back. But I had to try the place to see. In that regard, it was worth it.

    Great food and service. We went (Sunday night). Different kind of vibe than what I expected but good. Kind of a chic vibe. I had the hangar steak. My spouse had the fish special. Both were really yummy. My wife had a grapefruit martini. It was one of the best she's ever had. She likes them nice and chilled. It looks like they chill their martini glasses. Very generous too. Perfect. We would definitely go again.

    This place had a good atmosphere. Noise level is pretty high but it was still bearable. Food was very good, but not fantastic hence the 4 stars. Brussel spruots were really good. Arancini good but a little bland. Not crazy about cauliflower street tacos but street corn was very good. Painkiller drink was delish. I would go back. Probably for just drinks and apps next time.

    The food was average .The best meal was the Gumbo Chicken and shrimp Gumbo spot on but really needed bread to soak up gravy, Chicken and Waffels affels definetly nothing to write home about, Chicken dry waffel plain,did not serve with syrup. Flat bread was a small pizza. Arancini balls where very good pork belly lollipops for the price where just 4 small squares of pork belly. You cannot hear yourself speak because of the accoustics and ceilings. I am sure it is a great place for late night drinking. Not a place to go for dinner with friends.

    Food was very good as were the Drinks and our waitress, Emily was excellent. The noise level was very high and our table was close to the bar height tables which added to our uneasiness. Maybe a clear divider, separating the two areas would help. Will try again on a weeknight when it might be quieter and a better atmosphere for dinner.

    Nice stop on the main drag in Manchester. Opens up to the sidewalk int he summer time. Food is really good (try the shrimp and cheesy grits!!). The chef has a southern flair on many menu items (chicken & waffles, gumbo, grits, etc.) . Have been there twice and food was excellent both times.

    We visited for a quick bite to eat before a show. We were seated quickly and the hostess/server was very nice. The drinks were all served timely and the food (flatbreads and fried pickles) tasted great. The lower rating was for two items 1) it seemed something was spilled on one of the chairs we were seated at and not cleaned appropriately. The rest of the restaurant looked clean but it started the visit off poorly. 2) one of the flat bread orders was missed. This may have been a minor oversight but with only one server it may also be due to trying to do to much. I would go back as the food was good and service friendly.
