I found this gem tonight in a hunt for a Nice cocktail and a lighter fair dinner as I’m out in CA for a work trip. First they have fantastic attention to detail from the service to the food the staff was amazing everybody was so kind and attentive. Secondly wow! My bartender Carlos was phenomenal, GM Jay came and introduced himself and also introduced me to some super tasty beignets.
I would’ve added the photo but I ate them so quickly I didn’t have time to snap one! I would love to come back again this totally feels like a home away from home!

We went there on a Saturday night. Whatever we asked for they said they were out of it although we were the first people there after they opened at 8:00 p.m. their servers made so many mistakes. We were turned off by the manager’s behavior at the end of the evening. We had ordered an appetizer which was NEVER brought. After dinner I alerted the server that she never brought it. We were still charged $20.00 for it. We paid for it and then we realized that they charged us for it. I told the manager about the charge and the classless unprofessional manager said that he swore that it was brought to our table and that he saw it with his own eyes! Well he needs a pair of glasses and and some morals. We paid 675.00 for a table. We paid $75.00 for their very average steak. You think we would want to rip him off of $20.00 by lying to him for some appetizer. How stupid is that! Shame on him. Check your bill and check it very carefully. Make sure they don’t rip you off like they did us. They overcharge you and then blame you for it.

Overall the food quality was very good. Ordered multiple appetizers and we had 2 fish-main courses. Based on the food quality I would definitely come back.
I think the appetizers were a bit overpriced (and also on the menu there was a $100+ lamb rack option which deterred me based off crazy price)

The service was mostly miss (as hard as the staff and our servers tried) based on the fact they delivered our main course before appetizers; and the fact that there was a large wedding reception happening in most of the restaurant without prior knowledge to us. We are typically easy-going, but I think this could be improved on.

ps. as far as I know, on Saturdays, it mostly turns into a bar and even the food menu is different. So beware :)

awful service and very rude. Unless you are Israeli or some wannabe, they'll treat you like garbage. I had requested a table and they sat us at the bar. They did the same thing to various people although they had empty tables. Not worth the it at all, no matter how you look at it. Service is awful as well as the food.

The hostess said there are no tables available and put us in a small booth in the corner. She also kept coming and asking for menus and stuff from us which was weird.
Other than that everything was amazing!

Early hours it’s a beautiful upscale restaurant with a very chic and elegant vibe. Later the DJ helps create a fun, club-like atmosphere that, while not ideal for intimate conversations, is perfect if you’re looking for a good time! The food is beyond delicious and worth every penny!

Beef cheeks and branzino were tasty but for the price the serving could be a bit more generous. Same applies to mini cocktails

New and excited to try.

Let me say the food was tasty, so good job for the chef which
I gave 3 stars but after that it slips to 1 star

Waitress had no idea what the Accompaniments were with the proteins , she told my husband his hen came with rice and it really came with polenta .she also asked if I wanted my salmon well done or medium ?? She didn’t know anything on the menu nor did any staff.
The bus boy didn’t know what tapenade was and another busboy was unclear as to the name of the bread we were served which was stale and crumbled when touched. We sent it back and the next loaf was exactly the same . Staff straight out told us they didn’t know with shoulder shrugs. We had to ask for them to find out.
The other thing that was off was my waitress served my cocktail with her finger in it as she was holding it.
She was very sweet but seemed like she’s never waited tables before .
There were only 2 tables full , us and another 4 top in the restaurant but there were at least 7 various very young busboys or whatnot standing around talking to one another right across from us .
None seemed to know what to do or how to do anything.

This restaurant needs to be managed properly and staff trained or it will not succeed. Prices are high in the 30’s per entree so I expected much higher quality from this place

Looks like money was spent on the place but staff can’t support it.

Again, the chef did a good job but we’d never go back and I suspect that will be the same for most diners not related to the owners.

Spent a lot for a dinner that was a fail
