We had requested seating accommodations on our reservation as well as indicated a special event, neither were acknowledged when we arrived. A group arrived without a reservation was seated before us in the area we had requested thus we were stuck seated at the entrance where foot traffic kept passing by as well cold air every time the door opened. Service was slow, drinks were meh, food was good but overpriced for what it was. Would not recommend.

Very small space. I like the ambiance. The bartender was great and know his drinks. Food was ok. I was excited to see Filipino dishes in the menu since it's not common. But I was a little disappointed.

They ran out of one of the ingredients in the cocktail we ordered, but the substitution they made was still very tasty! Happy hour is a great deal!

It shows on opentable that they close at 2am but they were telling us to leave at 1230am.

Overall the drinks were tasty but service was just okay.

It pains me to leave a scathing review, (because I really do love this place) but the service was very subpar. I've been several times before and had great experiences and good service, but the visit last night was a letdown. I made a reservation through open table and it was to celebrate my friends birthday. On the reservation option you could list if you were having a special occasion and I entered info stating it was for my friends birthday and if they could do a dessert or something special. From the very first encounter with our server, she was rude. We ordered a round of drinks and food, but she never offered us a 2nd round or checked in much after the food. She seemed annoyed and is one of those waitresses who isn't attentive and that you have to prompt on everything. She is ready to bring us our check and I kindly reminded her that we are celebrating my friends birthday and I listed that in the reservation details and asked if she could do anything. She grumbled off the different cheesecake flavors and my friend chose one. I was frustrated that I had to point blank ask her after I had already made them aware of the celebration. Then after all of that, she still charged us for the tiny portion of cheesecake. It was just all around disappointing and not at all like my previous visits.

Amazing cocktails with Andrew at the bar. Such a fun atmosphere. We weren’t planning on eating but decided to share the plant based Sisig because it looked too good to pass up (and it was delicious).
Great spot, highly recommend.

FYI only ring the doorbell once. They might just take a while because there's only 1 person doing the hosting and serving of the food. They could definitely use someone else.

Cute place with great drinks and food. However, the wait staff was not terribly customer friendly (eg it was so dark in there I had to use my phone flashlight to see the menu - the server asked me to turn it off because they were trying to "preserve the ambience". Note that I only had it on for a minute, pointing it directly at the menu, and the place was empty!

Maybe it was just a bad night, I understand it was busy, but one server was very polite and nice while The other was a little rude and one of our friends got treated poorly. The drinks were unique and fun. We didn’t try food. We thought the place would be a little different than we were expecting. I’m going to have to try again a different time. Since this was my first time, I’m a little weary though. It was also pretty loud inside, fun spot though.

We made a reservation and when we arrived, they told us they were closing early and wouldn’t let us come in. Very rude staff. Thankfully, we had a good time at the bar across the street.

Once you get to the restaurant, you must ring the bell and wait for a server to answer the door. After ringing the bell twice, the door opens and the server asked if we had a reservation and then our name. I gave it to them and they proceeded to close and lock the door to check their records. I get the whole speakeasy vibe, but when it’s raining hard, it’s not cute... it’s downright rude to keep us outside. Though the restaurant was empty, they put us next to the drafty door. I asked for another table and was told this was our table. My friend wanted to stay and calmed me down. We ordered drinks and food to share. The food eventually came and the server didn’t give us silverware or napkins, we had to ask. We also had to ask for our drinks which came well after our food. Sandwich and egg rolls were fine. I hate giving bad reviews as I know how hard it is to keep a restaurant open in this town. This one needs to go.

The happy hour deal is wonderful, with half off of select cocktails and food items. We came on a Wednesday at 5:15 pm and it was quiet and cozy. We tried all three happy hour cocktails and they were all incredible!

Finding this place was like a mini adventure. Dining with my sisters and our SOs allowed us to reminisce about our fav Filipino meals of the past and experience the dishes created here. Eggplant dish was delicious. We ordered 2 more orders of this dish alone so everyone could try it.

I set a reservation for 3 and we were sat in the room next to the door even though there was open seating that looked cozier next to the bar. The room felt cold, I was expecting a speakeasy vibe to be warm and welcoming. I’m Filipino and the food was ok, all I could taste was salt. Overall disappointed, had higher expectations.

I love this place. I’ve been here a few times already and always enjoy their cocktails. The food is very good too. The cocktails are pricy but worth it for the experience you get while you’re there. If you come in Monday - Thursday, they do offer some specials that reduces the cost of food and drinks. It is also less crowded there during the week than on the weekend. I highly recommend this speakeasy.

We enjoyed some nice and very interesting drinks that helped warm up the conversation by asking each other various ingredients and such... very useful;) and beyond that, the atmosphere and vibe is really cool and nice. I like the downstairs much more but the whole place is nice anyway. Enough that I may take another date there... so thanks guys!

Fun idea of ringing a door bell to enter. Friendly staff and good service but overall didn’t live up to my expectations. The small plate servings were minimal and didn’t warrant the price in taste. Ordered the steak tapas, tuna and lumpia. Tuna was high quality but tasted like it came out of a can. Lumpia, maybe I’m spoiled by my friend’s homemade version so the ones on the menu were not impressive.

It’s silly that people had to wait out in the cold for their table. Have to hit a literal doorbell to be let in. Setting a tone of mystery before getting your meal is interesting but its also unnecessary and even more annoying when the service does not live up to the hype.

The experience and ambiance of this "speakeasy" is very enjoyable. If I hadn't eaten a meal prior to arriving, I would have tried more than the marinated olives on the menu... would like to return to try some of the other food. The cocktails that I tried were very unique and tasty!

We were glad to learn ahead of time that reservations are needed to get into Knee High, or we might have been very disappointed on our "speakeasy tour". The entrance has a certain charm, and the ambiance inside is very appealing (though the low light made it necessary for some of us to use our phone lights to read the menu, haha). I was "forced" to rate the food in order to proceed with the review, but we only came for cocktails. After seeing the food menu, we decided that we have to come back to try the food sometime. The cocktails that we ordered were very enjoyable; some of us were particularly fond of the "Absinthe Minded".
