    This was my second time coming here and I can confidently say I will never come back. It’s over hyped and the customer service is terrible took twenty minutes to receive a glass of wine and that’s before waiting 15 minutes to even be greeted at the table. I say there’s plenty of other trendy fun bars in the Springs. This one can be skipped.

    Food was making its best effort but the only thing it got right was the fries. Crab cakes were marginal. Shrimp skewers were cooked well but the heat was overwhelming. The risotto typically a dish I enjoy was absolutely awful runny mess. Service was fine but not great. Cool spot tho.

    Had a great time! Service was superb for a Friday Night! We went for happy hour and stayed for dinner. We were satisfied with the meals we had and the drinks were good as well. Had a glass of red blend and was actually pretty good. I had a much better experience this time coming to this place and the views out when you go outside never gets old!

    The menu sounded amazing but besides the salad it was all a disappointment, I ordered the nye special duck Brest and it was inedible for me to where I couldn’t even swallow my bite and spit it out, then got it swapped for the lamb and that was very over cooked and unappetizing but I didn’t want to send back another dish. Then desert came and also quite gross, the goat cheese truffle was a ball of unsweet goat cheese rolled in charcoal with gluten free crackers and a pepper jam, so maybe would have been good if it was a starter but it most certainly was not desert.. this is my second time going and I was giving it a second chance, but I don’t think I will be going back here with so many other amazing restaurants in the area.

    Be forthcoming about your menu so the customer can make a different choice if an item is not available as indicated on the menu. Don’t serve something different without checking in with the customer. I got beef short ribs, which were tough and fatty. I thought I was getting bison ribs but was not informed, even though the server knew about it.

    Really cool place to go out. Prices reasonable. Service was a little slow but really polite/apologetic -- they were short staffed. We'll go back for the patio once the weather warms up.

    While the ambiance was new-age and very cool, the service was lacking and slow. Also, I had the short ribs and they were mostly fat. Flavor was OK. Charcuterie Board was a bit lame. However the drinks were good. I think they are catering to the hotel guests that like the convenience and will pay whatever for whatever. Our waitress was very nice, but I think there is not a lot of experience.

    The restaurant is confusing to find, there are barely any signs in the hotel to find the correct elevator to take up to the restaurant. A staff member found me and my partner in the lobby (at the wrong elevator) and guided us in the right direction. The restaurant had probably 8 other people in it when we arrived and the host was busy doing something else. We got a mediocre greeting and then sat at a table by the window. Our server was very kind and honestly, the glass of wine I had and our service were the best part of our entire visit. The food was sub par and overpriced. Go here for a drink before dinner somewhere else.

    For a holiday it wasn’t to loud and overall fairly good, the wine pairing with the desert was a bit odd but not horrid, but not something I would order again, the best part was the salad for me but I would be open to going back and trying something off their actual menu

    My wife and I had a dinner reservation for 6 PM. We had a show at 8 PM. By 730, our drinks had been refilled one time, and the water pitcher had been taken away and didn’t come back for 30 minutes! I had to finally tell the server at 7:45 that we had a show we needed to get to and to please ask the kitchen to hurry a little bit. And it’s not like we ordered an elaborate meal! The food finally came out, and we had a grand total of about seven or eight minutes to scarf it down before we had to rush to the show to make it in time. Also, the portion sizes are very small for the price. I ordered the mac & cheese with shrimp, it was three shrimp, and the mac & cheese was about seven or eight bites total. I won’t return here.

    We had never been here before. We had only heard there is a place with a nice view, but our expectations weren’t very high for the food or the service. However, the food turned out to be amazing and exactly what we were looking for to get something locally sourced and healthy and still taste really good. My wife and I went here for our weekend date night and she said we might have found a new favorite place! With her dietary restrictions, they had no problem accommodating her and our server Josh was fantastic! He was a very polite young man who paid great attention to us, despite handling multiple tables. He knows his menu well and the Managers seemed to coordinate well with the staff and Maitre’d

    Food is interesting in a market where chains dominate and innovation is lacking. You can’t beat the view. Service was good, polite, reasonably quick. Downside every huge TV showing sports detracts from the lovely space. It’d be nice if that was kept in a lounge somewhere else in the hotel. Canned music lacked sophistication. We’ll go back for the food, tasty cocktails and service.

    The service was lovely. Space is clean and has nice views. The food is overpriced. I had the soup of the day which tasted as if it came out of a can, and the bison burger, which was just not good. Salt and pepper fries on the side were clearly institutional.

    Overall underwhelming and overpriced. If the prices were half as much this place would have been ok. Portions were small and the food was just adequate. Our server was nice but overworked, he forgot to bring the wine. It wasn’t a bad place but we won’t be back. It’s just not worth it.

    We were excited to try this new place, but left a bit disappointed. Outside patio was beautiful although we sat inside. Inside was a pretty cool vibe and not super loud for a Friday night. Waitress was great, but every food course took quite awhile. The prices were pretty high so we expected great food. We tend to judge the first time on burgers. Our burger was so-so and fries came out almost cold. Appetizer crab cake was ONE 3 oz cake for $22!! Just so so. Our friends meals were average. The Mac and cheese and the Brussel sprouts at least were both very tasty! We will go back for cocktails on the patio (the margarita was very good!) Overall we think the food needs to improve, especially for the prices.

    I love this new restaurant all around!! Great food, ambience & service. However, the music was sooo loud outside that whenever the door opened with customers and staff going in and out, it sounded like the volume of the music indoors in the restaurant was being turned up. Very disruptive to conversations! Is there something that can be done about this?

    It is a nice, new place with a lot of potential, however there is a LOT that needs to be done. While they had our reservation, my table wasn't ready for about 10-15 minutes. Others in our group with similar reservations also waited to be seated. We were able to order drinks while waiting. Our service was nice and friendly, and the food was good, but nothing really special. The biggest disappointment and by far the biggest complaint was the price for everything on the menu! The prices are way out of line for what we were served! I was shocked at how much they charged. I don't plan to return.
