This was one of the strangest dining experiences we've had. First, the food was simply outstanding - every item was delicious, with complex but balanced flavors. The rest of the experience was just odd. We were greeted by a guy who was friendly and had great attention to detail. He seated us, and I saw him several times throughout the evening adjusting place settings before other people were seated. Our server started out as excellent. Attentive but not too "in your face". Then, it's like we became invisible. They completely ignored our empty water glasses, even though the bus boy refilled glasses at the table next to us. But the worst was after we finished our entrees. My boyfriend sat with an empty plate in front of him for 30 minutes (not an exaggeration), even though it was pushed to one side in an obvious "please take me" message. Our server walked past the table at least 6 times in that period and saw it on several occasions (including to the tables on either side of us) - but didn't take it or ask anyone else to. When it had finally been cleared, he came back over with no apology or acknowledgement but he still had a strange attitude that we couldn't put our finger on. In the space of an hour, we went from saying "this place is amazing, we've found a new go-to restaurant" to "are we invisible? What is going on?" Unfortunately, the service means that we won't return - despite how good the food was.

A first time dinner for my husband and me. Peymon, the owner was gracious and warm and willingly seated us in a table of my choosing. Standouts were the oysters, delicious and fresh deconstructed heirloom tomato stack, and crispy skin branzino. Nice touch to have hand stuffed blue cheese olives for our martini's too. A definite return is in our future!!

The tomato stack is so delicious -- totally mouth watering. And that's just a starter. All the food was just wonderful. The waiter was so helpful, smart and hilarious that we asked the owner to double his salary.
And there's plenty of ventilation there -- so we felt safe as could be.
Go! You won't regret it!

TLDR: seating is weird/not comfy for 2, oysters rinsed, food meh, service bare minimum, probably won't go again.

Let's start with seating. Half the tables in the area have a regular chair on one end of the tables and the other side is a booth. The booth side is WAY lower than the chair side, making eye contact with your person on the other side pretty impossible, and if you are both short you are SOL. Luckily I'm short and other person was tall so we just swapped sides and dealt with the weird height differences.


We order oysters on the half shell and tuna tartare. Oysters came cold and well presented but has been rinsed so they tasted like tap water and served with no classic accoutrements like horseradish or even a second fork. Tartare was good no complaints minus could use more than 2 taro chips. Waitress never came by to check on us for either appetizer so we didn't get to mention any of the following and actually never asked how it was.

I ordered the shirt rib with pasta and he ordered the bolognese. Mine was mid warm and pretty decent on flavor but needed something more to it. His was lava so just came out and sauce was very sweet. Both pastas cooked well and meat flavor was good. Waitress came by for main entree to check but that was it. For drinks we just had some beer on tap which was good and basic/nothing to write home about and good list of options.

Service was excellent. Lamb chops were good, but would’ve been easier to eat if the chops were cut away from the actual rack. Beet salad was good, as always. However, the noodle dish with udon sauce was way too rich and salty. Oh, and please bring back the fried chicken plate…such a great guilty pleasure.

We have diner here several times. Unfortunately, last evening was a disappointment. We were entertaining, there were four in our party. Shrimp appetizer was marginal, one entre had to be sent back, one appetizer was fine. However, the fourth entre, lamb chops, were tough. Perhaps it was an “off night”

From the moment I walked in the joint, I knew I would love this place. The attentive host and servers were all first rate and could not have been better.

The cocktails were amazing and perfect. Top notch presentation as well as great bar ware selections. We ordered a dirty vodka and gin martini 🍸 each with blue cheese stuffed olives 🫒. The glass was a uniquely shaped piece and much easier to hold and much more stable. Not to mention larger! 10/10

The apps were insanely good. The mushroom and polenta app: to die for. Ans the duck pancakes- OMG, are you kidding me with this? We are obsessed and need to go back. 10/10

The mains were equally amazing with my pork chop and creamy polenta with asparagus perfectly matched with a bbq sauce. 10/10. The entree of my dinner companion was a perfectly cooked fish with the sides and sauces that made for bread clean up of the plate to get all the sauces up. 10/10

Finally, desert. We shared the apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream and a lemon tart with cream and some berry coulis. We could not stop eating despite already being way too full. The coffee I had as well was perfectly brewed and strong. 10/10.

We can’t wait to go back. The seats were comfortable. The space inviting and chic and the long sofas down the center were really cool and made the place feel warm and inviting. 10/10. Best new find in a while. Can’t wait to return. Try it! You won’t be disappointed. P.
