    This is one of those restaurants I'd been meaning to try for ages and I'm so glad I did. The food was outstanding and the service was friendly but unobtrusive.

    Visiting from Seattle, so we wanted to choose some special dining places close to our hotel during our visit. This place was superb. Very interestingly seasoned dishes with real culinary excellence shining through every dish we had. The service was great. Highly recommend this place. Wish there was a place in Seattle like this. (And PS: For some reason my profile here says I am from London. I visit there often, but I really am from Seattle.)

    The tuna tartar was excellent with crispy shallots adding nice texture. The tonkatsu was new for me and very enjoyable. The cabbage could be a bit tart for some, but I tend to like the flavor.

    We couldn’t sing enough praises about Corduroy. We made a last minute reservation after having to leave a nearby restaurant after lackluster service. We were so taken care of by the FOH team. Food is always so consistently great.

    Quite possibly the worst service I've ever experienced especially for a more upscale place. The food was ok, but not good enough to be all but ignored throughout our entire time there. This was a special occasion for our family so I had to make the most of it, but they very nearly took the "special" out of our evening altogether. Disappointing doesn't even cover it, very very very unhappy.

    The service was excellent! The soup came out almost room temperature and the main courses weren’t too hot either. Expected ALOT more based on others reviews, but wasn’t compelled to return. Average at best, but service was phenomenal. Also got served cold bread at the end of the meal unknowing we were supposed to get it

    This is a quaint, intimate restaurant that makes for a nice gathering with friends, family or business colleagues. There is a faint smell of cigars from the cigar bar next door but I didn't notice it as much as the evening wore on. The food was still very good and the staff was attentive and responsive. The bar upstairs could also be a fun place for drinks or happy hour.

    The 4-course fixed $75 Valentine’s Day meal was a terrific value. Velvety soup, substantial appetizers and entrees and (for us) a nice light gluten-free chocolate cake with silky gelato. We’ve been coming to this jewel of a restaurant since 2014 and while it’s still one of our favorites, we believe the innovative approach that first attracted us is waning. We had the very same Valentine’s entrees (antelope and ahi tuna) 2 years running prepared in the very same way. Same for the appetizers. The food was quite good but we were hoping for some novelty in the preparation.

    Nice snapper bisque. First rate peppered tuna and the salmon entree. Ok tart tatin. Entrees didn’t arrive at our table until an hour after we did. Lovely ambiance but this A bit much especially as the dinning room was very quiet at the time
