Although, the service and ambiance was very good, the food was not. My husband ordered Veal Parm. The veal was very thick, chewy, and burnt around the edges. The sauce was good. I ordered beef shank with mushrooms,asparagus, and cippolini in a light creamy sauce. The beef was very tender, but the flavor just missed the mark. It needed something to make it tasty.

We enjoyed our lunch here very much. We sat outside and it was fairly windy, but service was cordial and attentive and food was delicious!

Service was a 10/10... waitress and hostess were super friendly, personable, understanding, and attentive. The food not so much. Ordered a wedge salad and the surf and turf special. Wedge salad was great, lots of bacon and diced up tomatoes... really good.. the surf and turf was absolutely horrible. Steak was cooked good (medium rare) but had no flavor. It was fatty, with a brown gravy on it. Never ever seen brown gravy on a steak, wish it just had some salt and pepper. Not a good piece of meat either. The shrimp was tiny, no flavor as well. Just 3 small shrimp over a flame. Simple as that. The Mac & Cheese side it comes with had a bad flavor... it had flavor, it was just a bad one. I’d prob go back hoping they had trained or hired a new chef just because of the service.

Was not impressed with the quality of meals. My personal opinion and not everyone will share my thoughts but for sure items were prepared in advance and either microwaved or was not fried properly such as the calamari. Too many disappointments to list.

Food was good. We arrived at 7:00. and did not leave until 9:00. We waited forever for the bill. Our waitress seemed upset . I guess they were short shifted. She had to sevice the bar and high top tables. I would of loved the meal but the time and the attitude did me in.

My friend and I had a lovely night. Great high top spot. Lovely bar tender. An espresso martini to end the night! Italian grinder flatbread was amazing. Can’t wait to head back! We closed down the place and the staff was super laid back.

Service was good, but we were disappointed with the food. My Cesare salad was warm and didn’t have any croutons or even a piece of Crustini. The bread for the table looked like it was picked apart. All we got were very small pieces of crust. I ordered baked ravioli but it was basically shredded cheese that was put on ravioli and probably melted in a microwave. Very disappointing. My husband ordered Fra Diavolo and it was a very small portion but said it tasted good. Not worth the price.

Our evening started off nicely but, mins later The outside area was crazy busy . Noise level almost unbearable. The low tent makes all the voice levels way too loud . The food was good though. The time it took to get it though was was too long after the initial drinks came .... horrible Gin & Tonics. We changed to wine . The tonic was seltzer out of a gun at the bar . Our wait person was great trying to make the best of the hectic Loud scene there though . Always with a nice smile & a soothing way about her to calm the situation. I won’t be going back after 6 on a weekend again.
