Loved this restaurant! Highly recommend the salmon, the oysters, the truffle Mac and Cheese, and the strawberry lemonade cocktail. Very loud but great food and great vibes!

WARNING. THE GRATUITY IS AUTOMATICALLY ADDED EVEN FOR SMALL PARTIES. Really enjoyed the food and service but was disappointed to notice (almost too late) the gratuity was automatically added. The dining room is very dark and I didn’t notice it on the bill. My friend noticed it. If a restaurant is going to do that, they should be more transparent about their policy. We were a party of 3.

This was a REAL disappointment. Right from the start, the host was extremely rude and short with us and in about 3 curt words told us to wait outside even though we had a reservation. When we finally got in the restaurant was SO loud we literally had to shout to one another just to hear ourselves. And btw the music was really bad — like loud club music from 2016?? The service was so slow and extremely inattentive— took about 25 mins for 3 basic cocktails. And the worst part was the food — wow. It tasted like something you’d get on an airplane on a budget airline. It was almost certainly frozen or reheated. Just really gross— almost inedible. And to top it off it was so overpriced for what it was. Will actually never go back. Haven’t had such a disappointing dining experience from A-Z in a long time but this was BAD.

Service was wonderful! Great vibe and nice outdoor seating set-up. Really loved our waiter. All of our dishes were delicious except one, which wasn’t bad it was just sort of blah.

I am a fan of Extra Virgin’s food - the majority of the menu is both healthy-ish, and delicious! However, the service really ruined the entire dining experience for our party. It was a 20 min ordeal to even receive water and drinks, and after that we weren’t able to get a water refill or another round until we were done with our food. 2/5 meals came out incorrect, just missing items that were apart of the dish. I was embarrassed for picking this spot because the service was so bad.

The environment was beautiful and very sweet - outdoor seating was comfortable and the heat lamps worked wonders. Food was delicious and service was speedy given how crowded the restaurant was. Would recommend to anyone looking to eat out in this neighborhood.

Ive been going here for years so: These guys are pros, and the are killing it in Covid Times. Super friendly, attentive service, the outside seating is comfy, warm (heaters!) and quiet, and the food is always top notch American Comfort. They really know what they are doing. Get the fries with the gorgonzola, obvi, and their bloody marys are pretty dang tasty. Go, enjoy!

The food was good. Appetizer was the best part, a nice artichoke salad with a variety of tasty veggies on the plate. Fish was creatively presented and had a good sauce but a little fussy. My husband enjoyed his lamb, which was very hearty. But the prices were ridiculous, particularly the wine prices. $70 for a bottle that retails for uber 15 is patently absurd.

Service was awful - ignored for the first 20 minutes of being seated and we had to ask for water. The food was fine but I ordered a salad add shrimp and the shrimp was just awful - tiny, flavorless shrimp that hadn’t been deveined. Won’t be back anytime soon.

Server couldn’t care less - made us feel like we were an absolute annoyance to him. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I don’t need you to be thrilled when taking our order, but somewhere between I’m ruining your day by ordering and being polite would be better than what we got.

The food was surprisingly good, which was great given how expensive everything was. However the service was slow and the check-in staff was not very polite after one person in our party was late. The lateness was on us, that wasn’t the issue, but the level of side eye and judgement we received because of it wasn’t necessary since their tardiness was also out of our control. (Note: the restaurant doesn’t seat until your entire party has arrived, which is fine, but good to know in advance). The music level was very high. I would recommend this place for birthdays or as a pre-going-out spot, but would not go back just for dinner.
