Horrible experience which has not been typical in the past, we waited for 10+ minutes to be greeted after we sat down and our waitress opened with “do you just want to leave?!”
Have not had this rude of an experience in the past but it continued and the table next to us also commented on her demeanor! We were on a date night and have many choices in the downtown area, not sure we will be back anytime soon! Amazing how one comment can set the tone for the evening, very disappointed and as usual the food was very good but didn’t make up for the rude greeting and waitress, especially viewing her with other tables and customers!

Some Easter lunch....

I ordered the Seared Barramundi Fish and the fish was half cooked, meaning that half of it was RAW. I let the waiter know this she offered to have them make me a new one- no thanks. Instead I opted for some chicken wings, also RAW.

My mom ordered the sear tenderloin, the meat was good and so were the mashed potatoes. However, the squash and zucchini were very over cooked. The waiter was waived the cost of this plate which was nice.

He mentioned that he was going to top off our drinks at no extra charge, because of the mishap of our food. This was a lie. I was charged.

At the time of payout for some reason he did not give me a ticket to review, instead just told me how much I owed. It wasn't until I had the receipt email me that I noticed that I was charged for the fish, which is not a biggie since I was not charged for the tenderloin, but I was charged for the "free" drink top offs...

I would NOT recommend eating here! This place is only good for drinks and even then they are over priced.

Had Easter brunch here with my mom. Food was very tasty and delivered quickly although it was very busy. Our server was very friendly and had many recommendations for food and drink. The music was a little loud and the bar kept throwing bottles into the trash I think which was really loud and disruptive. Beautiful lighting and decorations.

We were wowed by the fact that this place came up in multiple searches, and by the variety of the menu. When we got there things were kind meh and the steak tasted ok, but it did not look appetizing at all. Service wasn't the best either.

This is an attractive restaurant with a vibrant menu and atmosphere. Our server, Sarah, was very good and we had a great conversation with the owner, Ari. Finding Barramundi on the menu was unusual and the Bao sliders fantastic. Hopefully, Ari can find some John Dory to add to the menu.

Patio was way too crowded, you don’t have enough room to move around comfortably. It was awkward. And it’s Covid. What happened to social distancing lol.

My girl and I wanted a get-a-way for the evening for some shared food and a few drinks. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table. Our waitress was outstanding. Knowledgeable, kind, and knew exactly when we wanted service and when we wanted to be left alone. The hummus was incredible, the kimchi fries left us speechless, and the polenta was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend.

We typically love this place and the atmosphere is super cool but second time we’ve been and we unfortunately won’t be back. Took 10-15 minutes for a server to come over, he was kind and prompt once he got here. Food dishes were very greasy (polenta meal) burger was just okay and turmeric dressing on salad was disappointing. To many things about the food that just really miss quality:-( we want to love this place but it needs better quality food.

Terrible Service but great food.
This place was one of The Taste of Pikes Peaks winner of 2019. Sadly, the service has gone down hill. The food remains very good.
Our experience was this, it is long:
We arrived at our reservation time to be seated immediately. It was fairly busy. Our server Noah came to our table 10 minutes later. He promptly took our drink order and appetizer order. In the meantime another servers husband and kids arrived which distracted the whole crew. The husband left the kids. The bartender finally begins to make our drink order. We ordered a bottle of champagne. Not difficult. Our server Noah comes back and states that the bartender could not find the bottle and what else would we like. I asked to speak to the manager and Noah stated that everyone is fairly new and the bartender was the most senior person. The bartender comes with our drinks over 30 minutes since our arrival. She takes our order and goes back to behind the bar. In the meantime there are 2 larger parties, one indoor and one outdoor that has two servers pre-occupied. Noah and the mother server. The only other people to help on the floor is the hostess and the bartender. Once the outside party leaves the mother server leaves with her children. She left a dirty table outside. 5 minutes later the hostess leaves, sees the dirty table and keeps walking. We ordered one more item, which was cold on the inside and almost burnt on the outside. A group of my friends came in and after 30 minutes of no service left.
It’s quite unfortunate that this is what has become of this place. It seems as though the priority of smaller tables means nothing to them and that the larger tables take precedence. Not sure if we will ever return. One too many strikes.

We really enjoyed our experience at the restaurant. Service was excellent; food was very good. We ordered the falafel‘s for appetizer. The tzatziki was excellent obviously fresh made. I ordered the steak for dinner and it was cooked perfect even better than I expected.
My husband ordered the hamburger and I had a bite and it was absolutely delicious.

Delicious food! We drove through town and decided to have brunch at streetcar520. Best decision! We ordered the following: Carnitas omelette, carnitas bao buns, and stuffed french toast. Adding pictures to show how amazing the food looked and it was flavorful.

The food was really good and the service too. Volume of the sound system inhibited any comfortable level of conversation. We’ll go back someday though, but full aware and accepting of the noise situation.

A little disappointed with the gluten free options. Came for Valentines because my Celiac wife liked it last time. Our server was great and when I stated my wife is a true celiac she said she would be extra careful and ask the kitchen about the choices. We ordered the wings listed as gf on the menu and she came back and told us they are fried in the same fryer as breaded food. The same was true of the fries so we didn’t have either. Last time in (pre-pandemic) we were told both were gf. So, either last time we didn’t get the real story or the gf fryer was eliminated. Burger’s were good, just wish the gf stuff was all gf. Cross contamination doesn’t work for my wife, likely is okay for those who just choose gf as a diet.

The food was really good and the service was good at first. Then our waitress left and we were not notified. We were waiting for 20 minutes and then we were approached by another waitress. She asked if we were waiting for our check and I said yes. We then waited another 10 while she hung out by the bar. I could see from my table and it was not very busy. The staff just seemed like their were in their own world.
