We had the duck spring rolls, hamachi Kama, Brussels sprouts, and house salad, and every single thing was amazing. Will definitely be going back to make my way through the full menu.

Our waitress was horrible. She was personable when she was with us but she had no concept of following up with us. There were only about 20 people in the restaurant and she took forever to serve us. And she wasn't the only server so there was zero excuse

Its so much to say about this restaurant! When you walk in the lighting is dimmed to make you feel relaxed. The playlist makes you feel like you're at your friend house grabbing a drink for girl talk. The drinks were phenomenal! the mezcal #1 is sooooo good. Its smokey but sweet makes you feel like you're on a beach in Mexico. It went well with the duck paella , Brussels, and duck spring rolls. I also got the whiskey #1 talk about holidays honey. That ginger and cranberry paired with the wagyu amazing. I was amazed to find out that the bartenders Brandi and Charles not only made the drinks but they were on the floor serving with their team to make the dining experience even more special. Borna the manager was very welcoming I felt like I was like his auntie he haven't seen in a while. Great Experience !!! Even with a huge party going on during service I still felt special. Thank you Chef Colby for coming by and telling us more about the menu and how you came up with the menu. Best anniversary!! see y'all soon :)

Date night with my wife, had duck spring rolls and smoked Hamachi for "apps". Then Hamachi collar and tuna ceviche over avocado flan. All of these were spectacular, flavors changing, etc. The house pickles sliced wafer thin and the radishes were amazing. Will go back soon.

Great food and beautiful ambiance. Service was a little slow but I think that’s because they had a few large parties seated. It was also very cold in the restaurant. Nonetheless, it was still a lovely meal and experience.

I believe this is a new owner, because quite a bit has changed since pre COVID. The plates are smaller, the prices are higher, and there was not enough wait staff for the price.

What happened to the old Bully Boy? The staff does not even make an effort to recognize us sitting at the bar. It was dirty as if the place has not need dusted off and cleaned since the beginning of Covid. The food is pretty mediocre. Oh boy, Bully Boy needs some help in getting back to old glory.

I really wanted this to be a perfect evening. The menu looked amazing. The food expediting was really bad. The apps trickled in. The chicken meatballs were raw. The entrees were delivered two at a time with 5 minutes between three deliveries and I never actually received mine. I was brought an octopus app to tide me over while they “expedited” my fish… after 10 minutes I cancelled it. There were no concessions offered. I think I may have paid for the fish that never came…

I wish I had better things to say. The drinks and food were very interesting. Lots to work on from an execution stand point

Food was excellent. Our only complaint was the whole fish that was market priced for $75. We had to filet it ourselves and it was over cooked. Buyer beware! Everything else was delicious.

The restaurant just recently reopened so I hope they were just working out the issues. Took us over 30 minutes to get drinks. After finally receiving our bottle of wine it took another 20 minutes to get glasses. Food was great but service was just not.

I did not realize the post COVID a bully Boy would be very different than the phenomenal one of pre-COVID days.

I was so excited to see that they had reopened that i did not do any homework on new business model.

Service was great and it looks like the previous restaurant but it’s just not the same. Food was just ok. Sad to report this.

Fantastic food in an intimate and suave setting with beautiful windows. It felt like we stumbled on a hidden gem. They have just opened and are warming up a new staff, but our service was knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Good service was quick and the drink selection lovely.

Will definitely be back. We were sat at a 2 top where one of us was facing the outer wall and the chairs are actually a bit uncomfortable (regular guy, normal build). if the table were along the wall or square on a diagonal, could’ve been much more enjoyable. A few cocktails and my beautiful wife remedied the initial impression :) Also, beneath my silver set/napkin we’re a bunch of breadcrumbs (weird). Nitpicking aside, the cocktails, food, and service were great. Menu was very interesting and unexpected. Brussels were great. Got the chicken platter out of curiosity. was really enjoyable and fun to share. So overall a very nice date.

Great food. Oysters very fresh, other small plates (okonomiyaki tots, empanada, asian pear salad, roasted brussels sprouts) were tasty and enough for our party of four. Eddie the server was knowledgeable and friendly. Took one star off because we think the empanadas should have had two instead of just one for the four of us.
