I went here for brunch on a Sunday with my girls and we had a blast! Great service, bottomless mimosas for brunch, and the food was good! Will be back again!

My family and I went there on a Saturday night and it was way to noisy. There were many tables available, yet they crushed us in in their upstairs dining room. Really, in the time of a pandemic. The food was good but the noise took away from enjoying the food.

We weren’t happy ! We got there before our guests sat at bar my husband had a martini and me a wine ! He just wanted some bread because he was drinking on a empty stomach ! Mind you they charged us $14 for the four pieces of bread! Then our guest arrived ! They take our coats then proceed to take us outside to a igloo it’s 13 degrees and most of our guest are over 60 so we go back in walking with out our coats . Now they sit us at a table that was so small it was uncomfortable they move us again upstairs which same size table but larger seating ! All I can say is food good but many chiefs and no Indians ! Our empty dishes sat on our table for 20 min even though the upstairs manager saw as well as the waiter . We asked for bread which came after we were done eating ‘! It was such a disappointing experience! A shame! One manager said he would look into the bar bread and he never came back again such a shame

Very nice sitting in the upper level “outside” area.....heaters were available and made the evening very comfortable. Lefkes did a great job in creating a beautiful atmosphere around the entire restaurant especially in all the outside spots. The food was mostly good, fish a bit dry but still good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our evening out.

Love love love everything about this place but totally we’re rushed out the door. We’ve come here at least once a month and refer our friends all the time. I understand the 2 hour for table of 4 ppl, but we weren’t even offered dessert! Last time was awesome, but this time was a bit rushed. Food was 10 out of 10 like always, but some more vegan options would be great!

This review is based on a Sunday afternoon at 3 pm for dinner. Food was terrific, no problem. Service was not optimal because they didn’t have enough staff ( pandemic?). Noise levels were abominable because a group who hadn’t yet left from Brunch were drunk with mimosas. The ambiance was ok, not great. I remember it being more upscale in a previous visit( Pandemic related?). Overall, will wait for Summer to enjoy their outdoor patio area which is reported by friends to be terrific.

We were a party of 5 for Sunday Brunch. First time for all us. Not a very extensive Brunch menu however great selections. Loved that they still did offer the dinner menu though as an option so we did order the grilled octopus as an appetizer and our entrées from the brunch menu. Everything was delicious and our server Gary took great care of us. Very patient, polite and friendly. Couldn't belive he'd only been working there for 6 months. He was knowledgeable about everything!! Such a beautiful ambience inside and outside. Felt safe. The tables are well spaced from each other.
We'll certainty be back...

We made a reservation and popped in on a Sunday evening. It's very pretty, with light woods and interesting light fixtures. We were seated at the bar, even though we asked for indoor dining room seating. It was very dark, as bars usually are. I needed my phone flashlight in order to read the menu. We asked if we could be moved, and they checked and told us that there was going to be a party in the dining room later and we'd be unhappy with the noise. There was no party. In reality, they had many empty tables, but didn't want to open up that area of the restaurant. The food is tasty. I had the grilled octopus, which was done beautifully. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly, and came with delicious lemon potatoes. The service was a bit off, but maybe that is due to service staffing issues with Covid? They kept bringing our food without clearing off the dishes from the last course, and the waiter didn't seem to give us his full attention. He would talk with other staff people while speaking to us, interrupting our ordering. It was rude. Anyway, the summary is: good food with iffy service, and poor seating. When we left, the hostess apologized for seating us at the bar and told us that she will make sure to seat us in the dining room when we come back. Why wait until we return? Why not seat us in the dining room, as our reservation was made for, tonight? We won't be coming back...

I came for lunch on a Sunday at 2pm but was told the we could only order from the brunch menu. If they are having a special event they should make a note of it on their website. It was disappointing that we couldn't order from the regular menu.

Reservations are not honored. The place is double booked. When you arrive they will try to seat you outside because of their inside space is overbooked.
It seems you need to have connections or know someone in order to be serviced. Food was delicious as well as cocktails, but service was poor.

We booked our reservation over a month in advance and came from far away by car service to celebrate a birthday. When booking the reservation I specifically asked for inside because we were coming from far away and wanted the “party vibe” from inside . When we arrived we were shuffled to outdoor seating where the table was not set, there were not enough seats and were given 4 menus for a table of 9 guests. We ultimately waited an hour to get served our drinks and had to get up to go seek out the wait staff to get served. We were also told that the music from inside would be played to the outdoor tent (which it was not). We then asked to get moved to a table later in the night indoors after 10 pm and the we were told to go to the bar. The staff was so rude and all we wanted was to be seated inside to celebrate our special occasion.
