This was the first visit for our party of 4, and we loved the diverse menu, the ambiance and all of our food choices (salmon, pork chop, burger and mushroom ravioli) were delicious. I already have plans to return with my girlfriends.

W got our table fairly quickly and we did have reservations. I went to sit on the table and I got Gunk all over my hands somebody must have spilled coffee and it wasn't cleaned up. I never received a new napkin to replace the one that I had to place on the floor when I saw there was more there. We ordered brunch so was eggs I feel a little pricey but okay. We both specifically said for his eggs to not be runny. Well my boyfriend basically had egg soup with for tiny little slices of steak. When you go to Toulouse restaurant and you said steak and eggs you get a big old steak not the case here. When we made the comment about the eggs there wasn't even an apology. Not going there again unless I only hit the bar because of the wonderful ambience.

When 3 of us say she wanted to take our drink order and we asked her to hold up. Burger was ordered medium and was well done. The beef sandwich had a lot of gristle. Mussels were great and the drinks are nice. Our server was attentive and personable.

all good except there was a long delay getting the food out of the kitchen. The server was fine. My guess was the kitchen must have been out of stock on something.

The restaurant itself was nice. However, the food was mediocre and parking was a nightmare. They only have valet and the valet line was ridiculous.

We had reservation for 7:30pm, arrived 20min earlier...we were greeted by the hostess as we told that we are little early for our 7:30 reservation and don’t mind to wait at bar while sampling few cocktails... the hostess told us they will notify us then our table is ready. We sat were almost an hour at the bar having drinks while waiting for our table. at that time period we saw about 5 empty tables also restaurant didn’t seem that busy for that evening... I must say there were only one more person besides us at the bar so it was impossible to not see us ... not once in almost an hour period hostess acknowledged us about our reservation or when/why our table us not ready...

Great ambiance; food was good to okay depending on the dish. Waitress forgot to put in the appetizers ordered and failed to mention since there was not drinkable water available - we would need to buy bottles of water ($6 each) for the water we ordered.

I'd recommend this place for drinks & cool ambiance.

We visited on a Tuesday and it was pretty empty which was good as far as the noise level. The service was good. Food was delicious although as a celiac I remembered why I don’t go often. Their gluten free options are extremely limited. Our server was fabulous and it was a lovely experience.

Very pretty welcoming restaurant. Outside and upstairs patios are lovely. The burger and Sammy sandwich were very good. The accompanying French fries very delicious. Service was outstanding - warm and friendly.

Went for brunch and it was delicious. Tried the scones (came with butter and the most amazing lemon curd), oysters, tuna tartare, asparagus starters - all were deckhouse. I had the lobster benedict and it was fabulous! Definitely a great brunch spot with top notch food.

The food was bland and uninspired. The restaurant was almost empty, now I know why.
