    Food was very good. Especially liked the goat cheese croquettes and the chocolate cake was phenomenal. Service was good. Only misstep were the large screen tv’s behind the seating area and sitting us right next to another group even though it was not totally full. It was our anniversary so I was hoping for something more cozy.

    Very nice meal with my daughters. We started with garlic fries (always good), and ordered flank steak, beets, pork belly and the salmon. Everything was prepared perfectly. Pleasant atmosphere, if a little noisy (we were in the bar).

    Our server was a lovely young woman. Made great recommendations, and answered any questions we had. The drinks were delicious as was all the food. Not a huge mushroom person but the mushroom flat bread was flavorful and light, I would eat it again.

    Good food, but wine was served in a NonStemned glass. I do not like my expensive wine in a water glass. Wine tastes better in a stemmed glass. Please tell them to get some!

    First time here. Everyone loved it! The atmosphere is modern, but warm. The food was excellent. Desserts excellent also. Our server was funny and competent and considerate of our one picky diner. This would be awesome for a special occasion. The separate dining areas with curtains were neat. Although there are high ceilings and it is very open the noise level was fine and conversation easily heard.

    Seems that they may still be a bit short staffed. Had the best service she was able to give us considering the circumstances. Would definitely come back I just hope they’re able to fill the staffing shortages as things ramp back up.

    Ordered 5 shareable items the pork belly and calamari where great. The garlic fries said it had way to much raw garlic on them. The chicken lettuce wraps had no flavor. And the mussels we couldn’t try because they had a hair in them. If I was to come back here I would order the pork belly and calamari again

    Food and drinks were great.Hadn’t been there in a long time and I was pleased to see the restaurant seems to be as robust as ever, weathered the pandemic shut downs ok. Biggest issue was slow service between table & bar. Kind servers, but drinks were super slow to arrive and my friend was brought the wrong drink.
