    The meal was nothing outstanding. The truffle fries were ok but not the reported “great!” My salmon was dry and my husband’s pork chop dry and tasteless. Won’t be going back!

    This place is really good at social media but that is where it ends. We ate there tonight after a show and we were excited to try it out. We started with the burrata and truffle fries. The fries were just fries. No truffle taste at all. Good fries but just fries for $15. The crostini served with the burrata tasted a bit stale. You could tell it wasn’t fresh. We then split the grilled Caesar salad. Nice presentation but they served it to us without dressing. Zero dressing. We had to ask for the dressing and it took a long time to get it “from the kitchen”. The dressing was a bit of a mix between ranch and poppyseed. Not a traditional Caesar dressing. By the time the dressing came the mains showed up. Here is where it went further south. We ordered the jumbo lump crab cakes. These were by far the worst crab cakes we have ever tasted. There was so much breading and filling that we had to break them apart to search for any crab. We literally left most of the cakes and they don’t come with any sides. Just two cakes on a plate. I really wanted to like this place. I would say come for a drink or stay away from the items we ordered.

    The service was outstanding and personable. The cornbread biscuit with fruit is the best dessert ever!

    Loved the ambience! Chill vibe that's a great spot for a quick bite before a show. The service was a little slow and not super engaged; my filet was overcooked but due to the slowness of the service, I was afraid that it wouldn't be back in time to make the show. Might be a better idea to just get apps and cocktails!
