Was really blown away by this spot. Loved the ambience and the coziness. Service was excellent - knowledgable and confident without being pretentious. It felt laidback fancy. The food was really good. Gave it four stars because I think the bartender forgot the simply syrup in my cocktail.

We sat on the restaurant side. Great ambience. I love the menu because you could get anything from a delicious burger to a lamb chop. Delicious!

It was way too dark in the bar area. I had trouble seeing the menu WITH my glasses on! Other than that it was great!

The food (fried Brussels Sprouts; broccoli and cauliflower with parsnip purée; Caesar salad; pork chop; filet; burgers; bread pudding and key lime pot d’creme) was delicious, and the service was spot on. We will be back! Looking forward to tasting the pizza on the other side (it smelled delicious). This neighborhood gem is a winner!

Wanted to eat outside. They were able to take us early for our 7pm reservation. Not everyone masking inside. Both American entrees and pizza on the menu, as well as handmade drinks. Service was fast and friendly. They handled a broken glass with no fuss. The sea bass was delicious and the fried chicken sandwich was juicy. There are desserts available but we were stuffed.

I'm sorry I have to write this because I had high hopes. The start of my experience was great, the place is cute, offering both indoor and outdoor seating. We were seated right away and was able to put in our drink orders and then food. I must say the food is absolutely delicious but the service was anything but. At first I didn't notice but my friend did right away, for us things were different than the others around us, our time seemed "rushed", are you done, would you like that boxed...as if they wanted us out. Then my friend ordered a drink 5 minutes after we saw the waiter bring out a drink to someone else. He told her the bar closed at 9pm, the time was now 9:34....but you brought the other person a drink out at 9:29 so it didn't add up. When she asked for the manager, the manager appeared with an attitude and not too happy to rectify the situation. Voices were raised by both my friend and the manager- extremely unprofessional. She couldn't care less we were paying customers. To wrap this up, great food, lousy and demeaning service. Horrible experience!!!!

Great food and ambience. Service just not polished nor very attentive. Apps are very attractive and delicious, but entrees are heavy on the burger options. Overall, a nice place to dine out.

First time visiting and it won't be the last! Fried Chicken sandwich was delicious. Not greasy and no problem with digestion. Had Hamburger also very good. We shared both. Venue is divided into 2 sections. If Pizza is chosen you eat in one side. Sat in window seats looking out at York Rd. which was away from other tables! Server Joe was professional and and answered all our questions about menu. Outside dining is available.

Really nice place. We have had 2 experiences here. Once in the restaurant and once pizza take out.

As far as the restaurant, the food, service, and atmosphere were really nice. We really wanted to try different items on the menu since we haven’t been out for so long. We had the Brussels sprouts, Risotto, croquettes, and a salad as appetizers and they were all really well prepared. For entrees we split the filet because we were pretty satisfied by this point. It was excellent. Drinks were great and well made. In fact i wanted something off menu and the bar tender was able to recreate it perfectly. Really was impressed. They do a nice job. Also wanted to mention that the atmosphere is great. Very different from other restaurants in the area. More like what you find downtown without having to make the drive. They had an outdoor area as well. Not a make shift because of COVID but a really well laid out patio in the back. Would be a cool spot to have drinks.

We eventually ordered a pizza from there a few weeks later. Asked for it well done and boom it was exactly how we like it. The crust couldn’t have been better.

We have eaten here a few times. On both sides of the building. The restaurant side has delicious food. The specials are fantastic along with the rest of the menu. It has a wonderful atmosphere that makes you want to relax and enjoy yourself. Waitstaff is great. They have the knowledge of food and beverages being offered. The pizza side of the building has wonderful pies with great combinations of toppings. We absolutely love it here and will go often.
