    Had amazing talk with the manager. The food was so unique and the mock tails were even more Flavorful than I thought they would be. I was really impressed with how the cook on the steak turned out and the collard greens are to die for 10 out of 10 amazing quality and unique flavors.

    The music should be slightly louder and they should choose a better music selection. It’s to slow

    Fantastic restaurant! Third time eating there in 1 year. Didn't disappoint. The cocktails are imaginative and the food is great. The prices are moderate which is an added bonus. The consistency between the 3 visits was unchanged which is unusual in restaurants these days.

    Although it was 5p on Wednesday night and the first gorgeous night of the year, I was surprised that we were one of 3 tables seated in this gorgeous restaurant on the very busy, dining option heavy part of Division in Bucktown. The service was perfect. Charming, not pushy. Supportive in menu selections and prompt. The food was amazing. A bit of a kick to everything, but we all enjoyed different options from hummos grain bowl to burgers to friend chicken. And with cocktails it was not unreasonably priced at all. The best part of being only 1 of 3 tables (more were seated by the time we left for the theater), is it was quiet to enjoy conversation, and the soundtrack playing in the background was familiar but no distracting. I would absolutely go back. Oh and no kids...which were at all the other outdoor restaurants we passed.

    Drinks are overpriced. I paid 24 plus tax and tip, $29 in total for a manhattan. It didn’t taste like a premium drink. Food is average or below average. Service was slow.

    A great experience from the moment we walked in the door. Hostess was extremely helpful and attentive. Our waitress was also incredible. The drinks were so cool! I’d love to try them all! And the food was delicious! I ordered the sweet tea fried chicken and it was amazing. The decor and ambiance of the whole restaurant was very chill. Will definitely be back and hopefully to try the brunch menu next time!

    The experience was okay; I feel that the menu is amiss but what makes up for it is some solid service. They were out of the shishito peppers. It was so crowded that when we we went made it feel a little chaotic but in the end we had a nice time.
