Arrived at 8 the waiter said kitchen closes in 30 minutes
Rushed us through dinner brought all the tapas at once then suggested we order the dessert
We weren’t even done with dinner and he placed a hot dessert on the table
Opened the bottle and didn’t even allow us to taste it. Placed the bill before we had even started the dessert
Almost took our plates from under us before we were done. Just overall poor Extremely disappointed
Will never go back again
And will tell friends. Absolutely horrendous experience

Food and cocktails were both excellent, but service was extremely rushed. Server asked us about dessert while we were still eating our entrees, saw other servers doing the same at other tables. Server nearly grabbed my (almost) empty drink out of my hand. Not sure if they were tight on reservations and were looking to flip tables quickly, but guests should be given time to enjoy their main course and be cleared before dessert menus are brought over. Felt rushed out.

Had a great time. It was a wonderful place to relax and unwind after work. The food was excellent— from appetizers to entree to dessert. The wine and beer selection is the best I’ve ever seen.

We will be back.

Food was great, liked their wine pairings on the menu. Service staff was very attentive. It was a little noisy in the restaurant, but it is all very open and all hard surfaces, so that wasn’t really a surprise.

Will definitely return again if in the area.

Ambiance was lovely. Very upset that we had a reservation and they did not have a table ready for us. I e still had to wait 15 minutes for a table. There is no indoor waiting area. Lamb chops were immaculate but the accompanying potatoes were undercooked, cold, and hard. We had to find a waiter to ask for water. Our table was lopsided and rocky, which the waitress later fixed. It was what we would expect from a restaurant serving $10 plates, not one serving $30 plates.

I have eaten here before ..but this time, disappointed in the Spanish meatballs, they were luke warm. The small plate pasta with short ribs was salty ..the gumbo was not impressive... Last visit was much better.

Overall experience was excellent; however, the food was not the same as the previous experience. The gumbo was extremely salty and the lamb chops were mostly fat.

The food was outstanding! Wonderfully prepared. The service was exceptional. Our server gave us honest opinions on drink pairings and food. She had a fun personality. We enjoyed our dinner very much. While a few people in our party have eaten there before, my husband, myself and our guest had not. We will definitely be back!
Love the small plates by the way. Perfect size for me!

First time eating here. Food was pretty good and hot. It was my husband's birthday so the setting was intimate and just right bc it was just the two of us. It was a little cold inside restaurant, but not extremely cold. Bread pudding dessert was delicious. We enjoy it overall.

Upon entering the restaurant, we thought it was rather cold, so we elected to eat outside which was slightly warmer. Waitress was very personable, friendly, knowlegdeable and helpful. We enjoyed the three wine flights. My wife loved her lamb chops with mashed potatoes, but there were only 2 small pieces of squash. I had the short rib pasta, which was probably average. We had the bread pudding for dessert and it is without a doubt the best we have ever had.
