Service was horrible.
Bar tender ignore us for a while as we were sitting at the bar for dinner. I asked for a lychee drink I saw the bartender take two lychees from the container put them in her mouth and the grabbed another lychee and put it in the glass she made my drink after having her finger in her mouth. Food was bland and the garlic butter tasted like absolute oil, No taste to anything.

Food was mediocre and very expensive. The brussel sprout/mushroom app was great as was the tuna tartare. The calamari and Wild Striped Bass ($38) were super fishy. Osso Bucco and cheeseburger were good, but the gnocchi was the worst we've ever had--heavy and dense.

We went here for my birthday dinner and the entire experience was amazing. Our waitress was so helpful in giving recommendations and accommodating to all of our special requests. They even sang happy birthday to me with a giant candle in my dessert. I highly recommend the baked clams and the mozzarella and bacon appetizers. Thank you for making my birthday dinner so special and memorable!

Terrific meal. Truffle pasta outstanding. Thoroughly enjoy food. Several comments. Foie gras innovative with interesting twist …with nuts. Good but would continue to innovate. Fried Oysters wonderful but not sure it makes sense to serve in shell on ice. Will definitely return.

Too much salt in the food, chicken was dry. The bartender couldn’t cook classic Whiskey Sour. 20% involuntary tip included into the bill.

The best restaurant in the area for over 20 years - still delivers the goods. I had the steak frites-perfectly done. My wife had the truffle pasta - delicious. Cocktails are always top notch. Matt knows his stuff and is a nice guy. Highly recommend.

Great server, yummy food! No outdoor seating was available (despite advanced reservation). Indoor seating worked out OK, but the plastic dividers made for an interesting dining experience. Nonetheless, we loved the restaurant and will be back (again)!

It was about average. The food was good. The service was okay. The street seating set up - odd and a little haphazard. Street through fare doesn’t always walk around the outdoor eating area and comes right through. I am not sure who is more inconvenienced. Be prepared to have a gratuity put on your bill.

I made a mistake and reserved our table a day later, so we showed up a day early. They made it work and found us a table. Service was impeccable, food was awesome. We tried a few different apps, the oysters, clams and fries. I enjoyed the pizza. Drinks were perfect. Loved this place, cant wait to go back!
