    Rudest, most unprofessional service I have ever experienced. Very long wait times at every step of the meal. Food was fair, at best. Wish I had read all the poor reviews before I went. They echo my experience.

    We have already been back twice -- food was outstanding and sitting outside was lovely. They even lowered the music which was loud outside. Every single dish both time were gourmet....you have to go. Already planning on going with another couple in two weeks.

    We had very good food and good service. However, we sat outside with a speaker right above us and the music was so loud it was hard to have a conversation. We requested that they turn the volume down numerous times to no avail. It made what would have been a very pleasant experience, less so.

    We like diners a lot, but we do expect to be offered sides with a $17 burger. The menu is what it is: limited offerings with unusual combinations of ingredients. Lively atmosphere means one can expect a lot of noise. It was worth a try, but it would not be high on our recommended list.

    It was the best! Mia, our server, had great suggestions for drinks and food and didn't steer us wrong. The ricotta pancakes were sublime even at 6 pm and the chicken nuggets had the right amount of kick from the chili crunch! Will definitely be on the return list!

    food was excellent. bloody mary was good, but not as it had been described by others. service was very slow, even though there were multiple empty tables in our section and overall the restaurant was not that busy. server took 25 mins to come back and pick up my credit card and check, and by that time I had walked up front to find someone else to check me out.

    This was our second time visiting and it was great! We tried all new things on the menu and they were delicious. Note: the gnocchi is egg based so it’s going to be softer than a potato gnocchi.

    The reservation helped to get to a table, but the service was slow, food overpriced, drinks came out really late. I couldn't recommend this for the price! The food was good, but overshadowed by the cost - example small shriveled and soggy fries for $6.95.

    As first time visitors our impression when we walked in was great and we loved the ambiance. That was quickly dispelled with the service we received. Our server Frank was pretty much non existent and we ended up asking other servers for things we needed. On the food side I would definitely reco the deviled eggs and the “lox” sandwich, both were excellent. I would avoid the chili crunch chicken which was super dry and greasy at the same time, and the salmon in brown butter as it was swimming in a pool of butter with over cooked green beans. The dessert were also nothing to write home about. The almond cake was super dry and the pudding was just normal pudding. The cocktails coming from the bar looked fabulous so we might come back to try the cocktails and enjoy the appetizers again.

    First time last night and was pleasantly surprised. Went before an FC game and was worried my teen kids wouldn’t find something they’d eat. They all wanted the French toast but that is only available for weekend brunch. They found things they enjoyed (pancakes, diner breakfast and chix nuggets). I had the mahi Reuben and really liked it. My husband got the gnocchi and liked it enough. Overall we’d come back, but I did think price was on the high side. $14-18 for sandwiches without a side. $6 ala carte fries, $19 nuggets and drinks were on the high side. We sat outside. I’d recommend but would say they could knock $2-3 off all items.
