    Three of us had dinner on a quiet Sunday evening. The majority of the restaurant is outside and it is lovely. The service was excellent because we were only one of two tables. My only complaint was the price of the ribeye steak I had. $72 is comparable to a high-end steakhouse but this is no steakhouse. It wasn’t bad - just thin and therefore, overcooked. The Devil Shrimp was terrific, along with the brussel sprouts starter and artichoke vegetarian entree. Drinks are fun and creative. Overall the pricing is fine - but that steak is a good $30 more than everything else on the menu, so I had higher hopes. Would definitely return and try something else.

    The service was excellent and the food was just ok. The drinks were fine but Al at a premium price. We ordered the truffle mac and cheese balls, roasted cauliflower and mignon surf. The roasted vegetables in the entree were the best part—cooked to crispy and delicious! If you’re looking for a DJ vibe and IG pics, this is the place for you. For excellent food, there are better choices.

    The young wait staff did their best and our server was actually good. However, the food was not good, from technical issues to just tasting bad... greasy over battered portobello fries, really sad example of tuna tartare, a weird salad with a hodgepodge of ingredients and odd plating, overcooked & bland shrimp on a strange Filet plate…. I can’t tell if the kitchen is inexperienced or incompetent. Worst of all, the guy that was running food and delivering to tables and perhaps the manger(?), was absolutely terrible. Aggressively dropping plates on the table, not clearing dirty plates and glassware, forgot my drink order, and neglected to address us, or say goodbye as we walked out after dinner. A very unprofessional experience. The music playing was also so loud and it felt like we are at a pool bar club during the day, even though the vibe and clientele were obviously looking for a nice dinner experience. Would definitely not recommend. Would maybe be ok for a drink or brunch.

    When you pay $34 for a salad, you shouldn’t have to wait a half hour to get it and then never see your server after that.

    We came for brunch around 10:00 on Super Bowl Sunday and it was pretty dead. There was a duo setting up and we caught a few songs before we left, they were very talented and fun wish we could have stayed longer but had to get home for the game.

    Beautiful spaces and good service. The menu was limited, and very expensive, no specials offered on a Saturday night. Our friends chicken was dry with now sauce in the presentation and my husband and I shared the $72 ribeye. It was about 1/2 an inch thick and covered with a brown(tasty) sauce. It was most definitely not a ribeye. So, this restaurant presented as fine dining, but it is not.

    The service was on point! The food was very good. I highly recommend the shrimp appetizer! The night we were there, the kitchen was short staffed and the food took over 45 minutes. The server was extremely apologetic, comped a few beverages and gave us a 10% discount. We understand things happen and this establishment/server did the right thing!

    Horrible. Too cold to sit outside so requested an indoor table, which was accommodated. Then staff would slide open a door and leave it open, bringing the temperature down 15 degrees, when there was an adjacent swinging (self-closing) door. I asked multiple times to close the sliding door and was ignored. Got so cold indoors I had to leave without eating. I will never go back. Management changed the menu (much smaller) since last visit - I can’t say it’s any better, and I think it is worse. Staff are immature children. Not worth a second thought.

    For $32, my Cobb Salad came to the table without dressing. It took two tries to get enough salad dressing for the dry greens. Not good enough. Over-priced. The others enjoyed their entrees. “Backbeats” was the reason we tried you, and we will follow them elsewhere.

    I think that the restaurant could benefit from some more attention to detail. The placement of the tables outside was not great with no shade from the sun. As I read in other reviews, the menus were really dirty and stained. I just think some more care given to the ambience for the restaurant could benefit them greatly.

    Four in our party. We all hated it. I ordered something off the menu and was served a different dish entirely. When I questioned the waiter, he couldn’t explain. He sent the chef over who said the menu had changed and the item I ordered was no longer available. The waiter did not inform me of that when ordering. One ordered eggs and lox. Terrible and no bread provided. Another ordered BLT. Bacon was burnt and tasted like cardboard. The fries were the only good thing we saw. A big disappointment as we went there based on a great review in Westways Magazine. Coffee was not hot and when they brought a replacement cup, it was not hot.

    Food was good but a lot of menu items were not available or described incorrectly on the menu. And all the menus provided were food soiled which wasn’t auspicious. The drinks were creative but not as well mixed as in past visits. Service was ok but had become extremely relaxed vs past visits. Overall ok but not up to past standards or current pricing.
