    Great wine list. Food was terrific. Brown hummus was amazing Rice bowl with lamb outstanding. Service good. Waiter not prepared to talk about menu or specials. Ambiance eclectic Table a little small for water glasses, wine glasses, hummus and entrees for four. Overall excellent and I'd go back again.

    Expensive wines by glass & bottle. A restaurant of this caliber should have gluten free pasta but did not. Several tasty small plates were well enjoyed.

    The food was absolutely incredible, I had some very tasty hummus, some carpaccio, the fix filet and the cacio e pepe, everything was delicious I wasn't very intrigued by any deserts, I had the Oaxacan on bourbon street instead, I didn't like it on the first few sips but it grew on me, it's an interesting combination that just works for sipping. The service is the thing that holds this place back, my server really didn't check in on us my wife didn't like her cocktail and it took a while to let her know and even longer for it to get replaced, she also wasn't very helpful with the questions I had, very broad descriptions and wasn't able to tell me some specific stuff I was asking. Overall I recommend it food is great and reasonably priced.

    Service was excellent how both entrees were served lukewarm and were sent back for a redo. Second attempt was slightly better. The pasta, cacio e pepe, was extremely salty and was not eaten

    This was a terrible experience from the moment we walked in. Hostesses at the front were rude and dismissive. They asked us to wait for the next table (understandable), but promptly forgot about us as we moved off to the side and sat couple after couple before us. When we notified them, there was no apology but they proceeded to seat us next. Once we were seated, no one greeted us or took drink orders for 15 minutes, until we finally flagged down a server. By that point we had decided on food and drinks and placed our entire order. The food came out quickly, but before we received our drinks. We notified the server that we were still waiting for drinks. She did not go and check on them but continued to deliver checks to the tables around us; we waited another 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. The server had an appalling attitude. She was neither friendly nor apologetic. The food tasted great, albeit small-ish menu. Needless to say, we did not stay for dessert. We went over to Trivoli afterward and had a wonderful experience with excellent service despite no reservations.

    The hostess was exceptionally considerate and sweet. I went for a first date and she made sure to sit me at a table that was quiet enough to talk. The food was good and the ambiance even better. There's an area better suited for partying and another area that's quieter for dining.

    They should alert people if there's an event at the bar in front. I've been on a weekend before at dinnertime and the bar isn't full or loud, allowing one to dine in relative peace. It usually gets busy around 9. But, I guess since it's Halloween weekend the bar was a party already at 7pm. The dj was playing and you could barely hear. Luckily, we were all the way in the back of the restaurant so that helped. I was underwhelmed at the food this time. Initially, I had the pork tenderloin and it was so salty I couldn't even eat it. I sent it back and got the chicken thighs, which were only barely warm and tasted microwaved. No. We ordered dry martinis and they came out FULL of vermouth. We sent them back and explained that dry meant little to no vermouth. The bar tender sent our server back to argue with us saying dry means extra vermouth. Really? A quick Google search clearly shows that's not the case. He argued and said that's how Cira makes them. My dining partner said they must be thee only restaurant in North America who serves martinis that way. The server was upset and neglected us for the rest of the night. I've been many times, but this was the worst.

    We sat in the restaurant as opposed to the bar area. We were the only table in the restaurant for lunch. Service was VERY slow. No one came by for our drink order. Took at least 20 minutes for someone to take our food order. Drinks empty. Would not return or recommend.

    Very nice place for dinner or a celebration. We had some apps and drinks prior to going out. Wasn’t a huge fan of the goat cheese dates I ordered but the falafel was great. The restaurant is pretty dark so it’s something to keep in mind. They have a live DJ which was unique.

    Way too loud. Music level is much too loud to be able to talk. Tables are a little too close together. Small plate and dessert were good but lamb was over cooked and could have a better presentation rather than one very long coiled sausage. . Both dishes are large enough to serve two or more and patrons should be told this.
