    We booked dinner here around the corner from our hotel. Excellent! Great upscale but relaxed sports bar. A little loud but not bad. Truffle caesar salad was fantastic. Ribs okay not remarkable, gnocchi good but too bathed in pesto. Great drinks and waitress tag team very attentive.

    This place closed for a private party and did not inform us! When we arrived, a man came out to sternly send us away. We showed him our reservation and he told us they turned off the reservation making capabilities on open table 2 weeks prior. I made the reservation 1 month ago! Which means they didn’t even bother to look for reservations made for the day of the party to inform people. That was a really disappointing oversight on their part. I even received a text to confirm the reservation two days prior! This was meant to be a lunch meeting for our group and we were really looking forward to that.

What you described is far from the level of service we aim to provide, and I am genuinely sorry for any inconvenience and frustration you and your guests experienced.

    Good food but a little odd that the restaurant was hosting a wedding reception in one half and then everyone else eating in the other half just had to listen to all the speeches and music and it was LOUD

    Very slow service. Took 45 minutes to get our meal despite relatively few people ordering food. The food was mediocre…no flavor. And the service wasn’t attentive…our waitress checked on us only once or twice during our 45 minutes of waiting for our food. Hard to recommend this place for dinner.

    Great service. Cute restaurant, but it was a little on the dark side. Needed my phone light to read the menu.
