    Loud with a festive wedding overhead in their party space, but not deafening. Great and prompt service, yummy chips courtesy of the chef, and tasty selections. Extensive wine and spirits with some clever cocktail options. Dayton needs to discover this hidden gem by 2nd street market!

    I understand there was a rehearsal dinner so the service was slow. The salmon burger was mostly filler. The ribeye tacos were super dry. Rice was cold. The chips, salsa and guacamole were good.

    Overall our experience was enjoyable. We were dining with another couple and focused on our table instead of the activity taking place all around us. I would advise future patrons to inquire if there is an event scheduled. The path from the banquet hall to the only restrooms in the building is through the restaurant. This created quite a bit of unexpected traffic and associated noise from the wedding guests. It also seemed to be the perfect storm that evening as there was a college football game on TV and it was being shown at the bar which is also in the center of the dining area. Again, this was another case of wedding members and guests loitering in the dining area to catch the game. The manager did his best to keep people controlled and moving along, but as you can imagine, that can be a difficult task. We actually witnessed one couple get up and leave becasue of the rukus. I will say, our waitress was very attentive, friendly and apologetic despite none of it being within her control. Would we dine here again? Yes. Would we call ahead regarding an event taking place? Yes.

    Steak frites was tiny, and cold. And chewy. Alec was amazing as always, even though my drink showed up almost at the end of dinner. Maybe the kitchen was a bit off their game last night. I’ll go again, but won’t order steak frites again.

    We had a early reservation so it wasn't very crowed. We were seated and Alex greeted us and took our drink order. They have a wide variety of cocktails to choose from at a decent price. Alex answered all our questions about the menu and we ended up getting the calamari, which was very good and I had a Caesar Salad with chicken and Mike had the Chicken Confit and he loved it. We had a very good dining experience and will go back.

    I gave my overall experience four stars mainly because their drink selection was minimal in my opinion. Their drinks were good according to the people who dined with me and we loved the name of their shots. The food was good especially the Korean BBQ chicken. I would go back again.

    This place is phenomenal! As its fairly new, this was our first time so we didnt really know what to expect. It def exceeded our expectations in every way. The exterior and interior are both pretty, cozy, and inviting. The drinks and food were both outstanding. We got the calamari, homemade chicken fingers, bao buns, and fried pickles. All were excellent. Our bartender was great and overall we really enjoyed it. We look forward to going back and trying more menu items! If you haven't been, definitely check this place out!
