Food was the biggest disappointment this time..the menu is incredibly limited (understandable) but then the quality was bad. Had to send back food for temp even.

It was absolutely packed! They did distance as much as they could it seemed.

They are opening back up so staffing is low, idk if they can block out times on open table to cut down chaos to help w kitchen and service. Server was attentive as possible prob and there were a few others running around to help. Def should tell guests they have maybe 90 min during busy times so people aren't just sitting without buying things and holding up the table. But im guessing most understand things are in transition as far as that goes. Biggest most legit feedback is food quality and options..

- groups of the same size who got there after us were seated before us

- big group of people in front of restaurant waiting to be seated - host had no organization of what groups had been helped vs. not

- waitress was good, but said she would take something off our bill, then didn’t

- food was good

- I understand they reopened only a few days prior, but the customer service was poor.

Despite the fact that our reservation was for a standard (not high top or outside table), we arrived on-time and were told our only indoor option was for a high top table closest to the front and patio door. We asked if we could wait for the other 3 seater high top that just needed to be cleaned off and were told no and also told that our only other option was outside despite what our reservation confirmation was. We hadn’t even placed our drink order before the other 3 seater was cleared and other guests were seated there.

We dealt with cold drafts as well as other guests waiting for their table or to-go orders waiting for their food in our space all night. Needless to say; this put a damper on our experience.

There’s no indoor dining right now but Saturday brunch beckoned despite the 25 degree day.
The staff went the extra step tp make sure we were warm with three outdoor heaters just for our table. Everything was great with top awards for the cauliflower appetizer. Thanks for being open!

My parents both got the pork chop and said it was the best they have ever had. Burrata and crispy broccoli are to die for. I got the short rib and my husband got the chicken. Both were amazing with great flavor and huge portions. Highly recommend the Humboldt Martini. Truffle salt rim and blue cheese olive.

Located in a great neighborhood, amazing food, and great service as well! We had a mixed dozen of oysters and smoked trout dip to start. Trout dip was bomb. Had the NY strip with mashers and fried Brussels, topped with a bordelaise sauce. Steak was cooked perfect, was super juicy and tender. Delicious dinner! Our server did an excellent job as well. Overall very satisfied and will be back once again.

Unfortunately was a bit underwhelmed. Had heard great things but thought it was just average. My date’s Pinot was so warm she asked for ice and her pork chop was really dry. My steak frites just wasn’t remarkable. Overall just didn’t think I got what I paid for and am not sure I’d go back.

It was my birthday treat, so the kids and I indulged and walked away so happy! The service was a little slow, but food was delivered quickly. My son wanted to try "real" crab so he went for the trout with crab dressing; our server immediately noticed the bearnaise was missing, and he corrected the situation. We shared the fried cauliflower and licked the plate clean. For dessert, we shared the flourless torte with ice cream drizzled in salt/caramel...SO YUMMY!!!! we'll be back after I lose the pounds :)

My boyfriend and I decided to have a middle of the week date night. He lives down town and we are trying to make sure we choose places with reservations to help minimize wait times. We chose to sit outside. It was perfect with the heat lamps. The food was absolutely amazing. My boyfriend got the Pork Chop which which was cooked to medium, it was huge and full of flavor. I got the Seasonal Risotto and added Salmon cooked to medium. The Risotto was very rich, full of flavor and had the perfect texture. The Salmon was cooked to medium which was a little over done for me. I'd recommend to get medium rare if you like it a little more tender. My boyfriend is way more picky than I am, we both said we will go back. ENJOY!

The crab bisque was excellent. Our waitress steered us away from the duck, saying that it had received comments as too dry (both smoked and pan fried) (she said they are working on it) and we choose the halibut which was excellent. A very large portion on top of a nicely flavored rice. Another had their short ribs which he also rated excellent. Their side of mac and cheese had a very good, cheesy sauce. Was disappointed in the whiskey sour I ordered, too tart and not as sweet as I usually like. Not very noisy since there was pandemic spacing. Would definitely try the place again and hope they add some more entrees.

Overall we were very happy! The cocktails were delicious, and for food we tried the grilled octopus app, the prime filet, and the cioppino (fish stew). The cioppino was a little disappointing, the scallops tasted very fish-y and we weren't blown away with any of it to be honest. The prime filet on the other hand was dreamlike! As was the grilled octopus. Great spot for a fancy date or special night out.

Brunch was amazing! We came in around 2pm and did mimosa flights and it was more bang for my buck then anticipated (bottomless is offered but ends at 2:45 so we didn’t want to rush). We had the burger and the French toast both of which were fantastic. Our server was super friendly and very attentive. We will be back very soon!
