    We arrived to our reservation and were seated. This was an absolutely awful visit from START TO FINISH 1. We were seated and gave a menu from next door la restaurant and took another twenty minutes to get an accurate menu.. 2. It took 36 (literally 36) minutes to get our drinks. In that time of waiting our server had not even been over to check, put food in, NOTHING. 3. Got our drinks FINALLY. Went to put in food. Ordered Brussels sprouts, rock shrimp, and VEGGIE gyoza. The other person in my party doesn’t eat meat. The Hispanic gentleman running food had our rock shrimp tempura, he brought it to THREE other tables, letting people look and breathe all over it before he realized it was ours. We of course asked for a fresh one and were insulted that he even thought that was ok. He then lied and said no this one is new, we both said sir. With our own eyes, we watched you take that food and show and try to serve it to three other tables that told you it wasn’t theirs. Please don’t insult anyone’s intelligence. He got angry and took it away. (To note. When he brought the fresh one. He slammed it down on the table with an attitude.) My partner who doesn’t eat meat was eating a Gyoza and it broke open. The filling appeared to be beef. There was NO visible vegetables etc. we asked our server, he said it definitely looks like meat. We then asked for a manager. Who said he didn’t know. We at this point, were completely fed up and let him know we would not be finishing any part of this meal and would be leaving. They called after to say that it’s a meat substitute they use in their gyoza. I have a picture of it. Why would you need to use a meat subsitute In vegetarian gyoza and not just fill it with minced vegetable? Overall this was an AWFUL experience, restaurant, service, attitude. First and last time and we won’t be back.

    The wine tasting and Umami small plate experience was awesome! I would not consider those small plates. We were SO full of when left, in a good way! It was a fun event. The food and wine were amazing.

    I’ll start by saying the food was all great, but unfortunately the service was poor. Our server was personable and friendly, but maybe a bit overwhelmed. We were a party of 9 and he had multiple other tables. We had to ask for a few things multiple times. The food runners also repeatedly mixed up our food/didn’t know what they were dropping off. For example, they dropped off the NY strip, but said it was the Duck so it went to the wrong person. We also got two different type of oysters, and they told mixed those up. I would go back for the food, but maybe with a smaller group so things would be less chaotic.

    Everything was very good, however, I did not like the Sunday user interface for payment. I’ve used many payment systems in restaurants, but for some reason the Sunday interface is clunky and does not function well! Recommend to get a new payment system.

    Bully Boy was just ok. It’s very loud. Our server was really nice and energetic. Drinks took a long time and the bar forgot one of them, which wasn’t his fault. We found the food to be underwhelming, though.

    Despite having reservations, we still had to wait to be seated. The tables were so close that we felt as if we were on a double date with the couple next to us. They served my husband his entree a full 15 minutes before mine arrived. And all they offered was a bland apology and excuses. They even had the audacity to ask us to try them again another day. Thanks, but no thanks!

    We arrived late in the evening and they were slow and shutting down. But upon our arrival the server quickly set us and gave us the menu run down as it was our first time there. He made sure that we got the most out of the limited time that the restaurant was open. He told us the most popular meal items and strategically brought out all of our drinks and meal items! The food was spectacular, but the service is what makes me want to go back! We’ll certainly be revisiting this establishment in hopes to have a similar experience again! We’ll go earlier of course lol

    The dining space is a bit small so it gets very loud very quickly. To the point that it can be difficult to hear not only your dining partner but also the server. Food: crispy Brussels, crispy tempura rice, spicy tuna avocado bomb, vegan roll, lobster box, spider roll, Godzilla roll. Food was overall pretty great. The lobster box kind of falls apart when you go to pick it up. The avocado bomb has a thicker layer of avocado to cut through than I expected but it was still very good. Favorites for the night were the Brussels and the Godzilla roll. 7.7/10.

    The food was really excellent everything was extremely well prepared. My only complaint was that their kitchen exhaust system could be stronger as we all smelled like we were in the kitchen cooking the food after we left the restaurant. But that would be my only complaint.

    Whatever you do, don’t go to this restaurant in the winter! It feels like an actual ice box! Everyone was wearing their coats at the table, and it was hard to focus on anything other than the temperature. Food was great, ambiance is awesome, but it was all overshadowed by shivering and discomfort. Please invest in some insulation or space heaters!

    The food is good, but I didn't find that it was as exceptional as it could have been at that price point. I've also never been served sake in a wine glass, although a unique touch, I would have preferred a more authentic approach. We would have really enjoyed some hot tea, and were disappointed to learn that no hot beverages are served here. I'm happy we went to Bully Boy, but I think I'll reserve my future Concentrics Restaurants meals at Two Urban Licks.

    Been here a few times over the years, last night was even better than I remember! Fun, great menu, delicious brussels and rolls. Split a few things and was delighted looking at the bill at the end of the night, excellent food at an appropriate price. Our server gave us great info when we threw some curve balls about cocktail options and really engaged with us to help us find what we wanted.

    We've been a few times before and had very positive experiences. This time was the exception. They claimed not to have our reservation even after I showed the hostess the confirmation email. We were seated in an unusually dark area at a high top. Two candles were the only way to see each other and the food. Service was extremely slow, especially drinks. The food was very good, as usual. Props to the cooks. This was a company holiday dinner which made the overall experience all the more disappointing. All in all, I'll chalk it up as a rare off-night for BB.

    We were excited to try a new place! The menu options look great but once the food came out it was slathered in sauce and overly seasoned. The wontons strips that came with the tuna bomb were so salty we had dust them off. The Alabama bacon had so much sauce on it that it was more sauce than actual meat. We had to return an order of Hamachi Kama because it was undercooked and too salty. Sorry the review is not great but this is our honest experience of what happened.
