    Great food and great service. The ambience was perfect for a leisurely Saturday afternoon. A must after a fun day shopping in the design district.

    We were greeted by lovely hostess who seated us immediately. Staff was very pleasant and attentive. Waiter took our order and we specified one of us was Gluten free and has severe allergy. Waiter took note and assured my friend not to worry- however my friend who’s GF had her appetizer served to her with croutons in it- luckily she noticed before eating - staff was apologetic and took it back and prepared it properly. Foid was delicious!

    Excellent service and ambiance. Cocktails were great. The food is very good, but for the price I was expecting it to be amazing. Overall, very nice experience but overpriced.

    Extremely underwhelming dining experience. We had high hopes for this place and were ready to explore the menu. We started with the squash blossoms and they were fried to perfection, except they tasted like air. Every chew we were struggling to find a taste and all we could taste was unseasoned breading that felt creamy from the tasteless stuffing. The carpaccio was presented very nicely, but lacked any kind of flavor other than acidic. While we were deciding if we were going to order anything else, the manager came by asking how the meals were but she strategically skipped our table (we were the only ethnic table there). That's when we closed our check and refused to spend anymore money at this place. We won't ever be back. This place won't be open for long. Service was excellent until our server split the bill in half wrong ($76 and $55) and yes, 2 drinks and 2 appetizers equaled $131.99. Then she had the nerve to tell us she only got 10% of the 20% auto gratuity. All in all it was great for people watching but we had to go elsewhere to satisfy our hunger.

    The decor, vibe and music was great. The waiter was dismissive, rushed and seemed annoyed. I had to ask twice for water refill as well as a glass of wine. The food was ok. Oysters were tiny, the wagyu carpaccio was amazing, the branzino was just ok. My friends cocktails were not the greatest. Either too sweet or too sour (she tried 2 different kind of cocktails.) Glad I came to try it out but will probably not be back. Maybe just for a drink at the bar and some apps but not dinner.

    The service was far from what we expected for a restaurant at this level. Our waiter took our appetizer and drink order and did not come back to our table for over an hour so I had to go to the hostess and request the manager to get our waiters attention. The wait staff was extremely brief during the entire dinner and almost non-existent which resulted in our water and wine glasses being consistently empty. The food was very good but the service was far below average for a restaurant of this calibre, especially when going for a special occasion.
