    I’m so disappointed. We used to love this place. The food has taken on a TGI Fridays vibe. When my meal arrived it was not appetizing and poorly thrown together. Our server was virtually unavailable as she was also bartending. The menus now are unattractive laminated sports bar style. It seems they have transitioned into a bar with food, lots of tvs and loud noise. I won’t be returning.

    The pizza and the filet medallions were absolutely delicious as were the loaded tots. The servers were super attentive and the vibes were great! The experience here was wonderful! Parking is a bit crazy but the parking garage across the street allows for the first hour free.

    Always good. Somehow we all ended up with the fish tacos. The secret (optional) ingredient is - you guessed it - bacon! Service was friendly and terrific.

    Dee's service was outstanding. Unable to decide between salmon or bratwurst, she said she likes the salmon. It was delicious! I'm not a fan of quinoa. It has always had a dirty taste to me. Not their quinoa & tomato salad! My guest had the fish & chips. I had fish & chips elsewhere the day before that was subpar. The breading was thick like a grease sponge. PS310's fish & chips were lightly breaded, crispy. The fish was light & flaky. Their tartar sauce had an interesting flavor to it. It seemed like there was a slight taste of whole grain mustard in it that set it apart from normal tartar sauce. We both had a watermelon mojito that we enjoyed. However neither of us felt that it tasted like watermelon. The only negative point was that the music level seemed a bit much. Not enough that we couldn't carry on a conversation at normal volume. But some customers did find it necessary to speak louder at their tables in order to talk over it.

    We were looking for a restaurant with a unique atmosphere and this truly was what we were looking for! Our waiter was the best - could answer all our questions about the menu and even brought me a sample of the sauce that would be on my chicken curry to ensure it was to my liking (I did not ask him to do this). The food could not have been more delicious!

    I feel like this place goes a little further downhill with each visit. Ambience is perfect, menu has all the right options, execution is just fair. Drinks are weak, very weak. Everything was overcooked, chicken was very dry and the burger was still good, just way overcooked. Look, you didn't need to ask me how I wanted it cooked, but you did. I went with medium, because it's a burger...it was very well-done. The toppings saved it. Bun, cheese, sauce, bacon(bits) were all very good...as were the truffle fries...everything else we ate was eh.

    Ordered the parmesan truffle fries and they came out cold. Sent them back for hot ones and a second order came out even colder (how is this possible? did anyone even bother to check?) The third batch was hot and delicious and the manager kindly took them off the bill. The variety of food was great and all items were tasty. The tuna bowls were especially popular and loved by our group. The drinks were creative and, as are their names! Sticky menus and tables, but in general, the vibe was fun.

    The service was good. We went for brunch and the menu is new so it was a bit exciting to try, but that excitement died when the food came out. It was so bad that almost all the plates went back to the kitchen because it was so bad.

    The PB &J Burger with an impossible burger patty substitute was a hit with one of my guests. The buffalo cauliflower appetizer was great. The crispy chicken sandwich had a good flavor, but the meat was tough and sinewy. We had a great server who provided honest opinions about which dishes they preferred.

    It was a much nicer place than I expected. It was very crowded for a Wednesday night, maybe because of their happy hour. Got food from their happy hour menu and was not impressed. Their truffle fries were soggy and seemed undercooked. It was also an extremely small portion so definitely not worth it. The PB&J sliders were interesting but also wasn’t that impress either. Service was slow too. Overall I think I had higher expectations and was disappointed.

    Seems like the staff were a bit overwhelmed for a Tuesday. We were a party of six and the restaurant was full -- surprising on a Tuesday! Our waiter was really a nice guy, but seemed swamped by a full restaurant with limited support. Drinks took 15+ minutes to reach the table, water was only topped off once (after two requests), and one meal arrived to the table about 10-15 minutes after the others. Another meal was delivered and actually was completely wrong -- a chicken sandwich with a side salad was ordered, and a chicken salad delivered. One meal and a drink were comped, which was kind. Simply noticeable that this isn't quite a well-oiled machine quite yet. Will happily consider giving a second shot as everything was delicious and the atmosphere lovely.

    Different atmosphere from DTLA Public School, more college-kid/sports bar oriented. Hostess first ignored us because we weren't "standing in the right place to check in" then food brought before our drink order. Overall ok experience from essentially a large bar.
