    I paid for an open bar and was only able to get ONE drink as too many people struggling to get attended by few staff in a small area. A total rip off! Mostly young college kids didn’t make the ambiance particularly appealing for us and the music generic and boring. Won’t be returning next new year’s eve, that’s for sure!!

    Chairs were filthy, need to be replaced. No hostess, no servers, had to order at bar. Out of waffles, hash browns and never brought fruit as a replacement for hash browns/tots. Blueberry oatmeal was gross.

    beautifully designed space . it would be nice if there was a hostess or someone to be able to assist with questions or checking. bartender was great but he was the only one , should definitely hire another one.

    Worst place ever. It’s really not what you see on Instagram. It’s loud and nobody greets you so you don’t know anything. Place is a mess

    This is not a restaurant per se. This is a bar where you can order food (at the bar). Maitre'd station was not staffed causing us to stand around for five minutes trying to figure out if we were even in the right space. Food was fine. Atmosphere is cliche Instagrammable decor for Gen Z.
