Great time great service
Super clean, everything according to the CDC recommendations. Very friendly staff, delicious drinks and food. The only thing was the chairs were very uncomfortable but they had an alternative chair and brought it right away.
Is a fun place with great staff, tasty drinks, and delicious food. Definitely recommended!
Live music nights are the best! Food here is excellent; my favorite is the stuff fried olives. Staff is always friendly.
Servers didn’t seem prepared to handle many reservations at once. Food came before drinks. Jazz started pretty late and then before we knew it we were being asked to check out for the second show. The later reservations probably got more of an “experience”
The server asked us to leave before the 2-hour table time limit and because of this, wouldn’t fulfill our request for additional drinks. That made the experience a little subpar. The environment was nice & the food was good, though it was a very limited menu and prices were a little high for the value we received.
Not a lot of food options and the drinks were alright... but the live music was great!
Having made a reservation and needing to hold it with a credit card, I thought Here and Now would probably be pretty busy, upscale and hip. I was happy when we found Here and Now easily and walked up around 15 mins before our 8:30 reservation. We stood outside awkwardly for at least 5 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Nearby employees stood looking at us but not directing us as to what to do or even that they saw us. I kinda felt like maybe they didn’t, I was very confused. Then when someone did approach us, he mumbled and seated another group before us. Then while standing there confused another staff came up and said have you been helped? I was not sure how to respond. The other staff seemingly noticed us, but is he helping us? So I responded No. Then it was like what’s your name and once they pulled up our reservation we followed to the back patio. It was very nice! The staff made sure to mention there’s a 90 minute maximum. Honestly I was put off by the initial greet but thought, HEY! See how it goes. There were really nice tables with comfy chairs but my cousin and I were sat at a dirty table with folding chairs right next to a door. I inquired on how you can reserve the nicer tables to which I was never told. Oh well ... we made it and we were excited to be together so we didn’t say anything as everyone working there seemed busy or confused. Around 8:30 a group started playing music. It was really nice! Very cool music vibes. I make it a point to not order meals at small tables or places with bad service, so I only ordered drinks and French fries but they were tasty! When our timer was up our server came over to remind us of the 90 mins and honestly I just felt a little low class being reminded so we left. Overall I would suggest going here for an after dinner drink without expectation, dive bar service upscale ambiance. I paid $100 for 4 drinks and French fries.
Service and food was great. The drinks are a bit too small for the price.
Intimate setting. Delicious food and drinks. Excellent service!
The food and service is excellent, even in a Pandemic. Highly recommended.
Love this place!
Great place for a delicious burger or empanada. Back patio is a great place to have a cocktail, although the inside of the restaurant is very nice. Hopefully indoor dining will be on the horizon.
Very glad that I found this spot! I was searching out a place with a cool vibe, but most importantly a full bar and good food. Here and Now also added live music to the list. It was very nice indeed. Make a reservation and call ahead for set times.
I'd skip the wings next time, but I was hungry so I ordered the salt & pepper ones to give them a whirl. They were okay. Next was the burger and it was simple and delicious. It is a quality burger made with flavorful, rich ingredients that come together beautifully in your mouth. Very, very good! I highly recommend.
The cocktails were delicious and compliment the menu well. Nicely flavored and mixed drinks that cleanse a mouthful of juicy, fatty beef quite well. The hibiscus margarita is off menu but very delicious. I stuck to bourbon & Coke after seeing one of my perennial favorites, Michters Rye, on the menu.
The live jazz band was a trio ensemble that covered contemporary hits, but very skillfully delivered old school R & B hita from legends like Marcin Gaye and Maze. Very cool indeed!
i love this place. I love that they are open and that their main concern right now is safety.
I went here to spend time with my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. Not only Food and drink were both perfect but also I loved vibe there as well. I had a really great time.
Sat for 20 minutes without a server coming up. We got up and left to support another business during this pandemic.
Very chill , drinks are good if your looking for a place to unwind this is perfect , went at night time listen to some jazz next to the fire pit amazing !!!
We had a marvelous time visiting the newly reopened Here and Now. The food and drinks were spectacular as was the service!
It took 30 minutes to get our cocktails after sitting down.
Love this place and staff!
I ate on the patio later in the evening, during COVID restrictions. I had a really good meal with a drink, with decent service. Glad I went.
Miguel the waiter was amaaazing and the food as well
I'm glad I found this place. The cocktails were excellent, as well as the nice and friendly service. Their back patio was quite cozy. Looking forward to going back.
Don’t recommend unless you really need a place with free parking
This was a great restaurant! Food and drinks were great!
The waiter was very kind and welcoming. Drinks were delicious!
Great place for casual dining, great drinks and a small menu but tasty. Not a place to go for the food if you’re looking for something different. This is health conscious bar food. We had dinner and drinks and a nice ambiance in the back of the bar, private and with a fire pit. We would go again as a drinks night, not so much dining.
My favorite hangout
The staff was absolutely great!! And given that we dined outside on the sidewalk - it was a super dope experience!
Great whisky selection.
The drinks are good and the food is unique the service is alright but they could be A little more interested in how the customers want to pay... I’ll definitely go again!
We came late night on July 4th for outside seating. The lovely person with ombre/highlighted curls (shoulda caught their name!) who served us was so helpful and kind. The frozen drinks she recommended were perfect for the hot night and they even gave us sparklers to go for us to celebrate on our own!
It was genuinely a perfect night! Thank you so much Here and Now! Glad to have a local bar with great drinks and energy!
Great for covid friendly eating –– Temperature check when entering, outdoor seating with plenty of space in between others, covered drinks until poured at your table, thorough disinfecting after table is used.
I love everything about this bar - the drink menu is brilliantly crafted, the bartenders make you feel like an old friend if you’ve been more than once, and when they do special events they really go all out. I had the fried Brussels sprouts, the cosmo is dead, and the maestra. The only danger is the temptation to sample as much of the menu as you possibly can
We loved it
Blitzen was a great experience. Best eggnog I've had before. Every drink was fantastic, the food did a good job, and the atmosphere was fun. A little loud but that's the nature of the bar, and after your first "best holiday drink I've ever had" you won't even notice. Definitely recommended.
Went to the Christmas pop up and it was so fun, we went in our onesies and watched Christmas Vacation while sipping on tasty Christmas themed drinks with fun drink names like th spiked eggnog named "Buzz your girlfriend, woof!" So fun!
We had a reservation but had to wait over 30 minutes for our table. The food was bland, our baked brie was barely baked, the latkes were unseasoned and the cocktail I had was disgusting and I had to switch to wine.
The Blitzen's Holiday pop-up is the best! We had so much fun. They do the place up nice and Christmas-y, and they have special food and themed cocktails, like "You'll Shoot Your Rye Out" and "Gin-gle All The Way". The matzoh ball soup, served in a cocktail glass, was to die for. We loved all the cocktails we tried, it's hard to single out one. It's only happening until the end of December, you should go while you can.
