    I took my boyfriend for a birthday dinner - we had the tasting menu and a few cocktails. The food was phenomenal, the cocktails were innovative and refreshing, and the service was fantastic. Very cool space inside. Would definitely return!

    Food and drinks were really good! Lots of small dishes so its perfect to share a few with friends over drinks. The ambiance was really nice outside on the terrace, not too loud but the music was still present and added to the experience! Service was a little slow but overall a great time.

    We did the 10-course meal for two. Initially, the plates seemed small, however we quickly realized it would ultimately be quite a bit of food! They do bring one after another, and not all waitstaff explained what it was. Sometimes we got two at once. Overall though, this was okay. We really enjoyed getting to taste so many items, and preferred not having to order from or overthink the menu choices. Now the food: Fantastic. Five stars. The experience took about 2hrs, and we would recommend this to friends.

    I really like Mauvais Garçon as I had a friend of mine who recommended it, however the service was extremely slow considering the fact that they serve small tapas. The food was amazing, the vibe was A1, only food I didn’t like was the churros. Not tasty at all and waaaay too much cinnamon. I recommend going there and will be coming back for the food, I just really hope that at my next visit the service will be a bit faster.

    This was not at all what we expected! The menu reads like of the moment, casual dining and the space is more of a blacked out bar with a raging 90's soundtrack and inattentive service. 👎🏼

    We had the 10-course experience menu, which was generally good though not mind-blowing (loved the tuna tartare, didn't like the overly-acidic sliders), and the portion size for the dessert seemed a bit small for two people, though by the end of the meal I was certainly full. Service started out well but seemed to taper off during the evening - our dishes were brought with no explanation/introduction, regardless of whether we were ready or not, and at one point our water carafe simply disappeared leaving me to nurse the ice cube in my downed cocktail.

    We were informed by Jason that we should order 3 tapas each. We ended up ordering 2 each which was perfect- not too much and not too little. Jason added 1 item to make it 4 for the dishes that only 3
