It was great except our reservation was for outdoor dining and there was no table available. They put a little table out and the 3of us squeezed in. It was ok and we were mellow about it but no what we expected and disappointing. Otherwise all was great. Service was great and food was amazing,

Always love the food and has great menu options! Little cold dining outdoors as a two-person party. The four person parties had more of a heated area.

This location is my favorite location. Their strawberry martinis are very well crafted and their staff is amazing. Everything on the menu is a hit but I suggest the Bresaola! They also have outdoor heaters for their outdoor seating option. Perfect perfect perfect.

We went on a Thursday night, and we were able to get in right away for our reservation. They had an amazing Jalapeno margarita and we had a few of those. The server was attentive, but not too overbearing and made some great recommendations for an appetizer. I will definitely return since the food and service was so great.

Outdoor dining in the age of Covid-19. My children were ready for an adventure. To the lower east side is where we landed. We started with meatballs and calamari. My son greatly enjoyed the meatballs and was disappointed mom had the last one. The service was exceptional and attentive.
