The service was pretty good, but not a good variance of food selection. The noise level was outrageous when we first arrived, being there are no barriers inside. I could not hear my friend talking and she was sitting directly in front of me. The more patrons left, of course it became more quiet.

Had a bad experience. Server greeted fairly quick, but took 15 mins to come back and take our drink/app order. 15 mins later our apps had arrived but still waiting on drinks. Apps were good, but service was not.
Cancelled drinks all together, it had been well near 45 mins and never received drinks.

My hubby and I were wrapping up celebrating our wedding anniversary. The staff wS polite and attentive. The food was so good. I accidently dropped my black disposable mask on the floor and a staff member quickly got me an unused black disposable mask and threw the one that fell on the floor in the trash.
Definitely dis a shout out on Facebook and we will be back again.

Fairly simple, but very fresh menu options. The rooftop was very pleasant, and even when full, the noise level was pretty quiet. Perfect for conversation.

The cocktail menu had a lot of options, the food came out very quickly, the staff was very friendly and attentive. This one will definitely be in our rotation.

One of the best small plates restaurants in Charlotte, if not the best. All of their dishes are unique, full of flavors and present very well. The cocktails are also amazing and original. Right now, this is my favorite spot for food/drinks and atmosphere in Charlotte. For me, the Devils On Horseback and Brussel Sprouts (different than how everyone else makes them) are a couple definites. On our last visit, we stuck with the pork belly (so good) and tried the mussels which was also awesome, but you really can't go wrong. As for drinks, I love mezcal so I always get the Curious Poses. For something without the smokiness, but also refreshing, try the Genius Dawson.

The menu is very limited but the food that we had was very good. I would say very small plates place. Cocktails were excellent but it is for a younger crowd. We didn’t feel quite cool enough to be there.

We went to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Even though they acknowledged it verbally, they offered nothing as other restaurants have done when we have celebrated previous anniversaries. Small things like no butter with bread, which was a $3 upcharge for four pieces pf bread, two of which were end pieces; no coffee with dessert, cause they couldn't boil water. Really! Request for extra napkin and a spoon to put left over in box to take home was met with some indifference. This was a one and done!
