    The food was excellent. The service unfortunately left us hanging. We were first sat at a very unstable table outside. The moment we sat down I barely leaned on the table and almost tipped the whole thing over! Very dangerous. We very visibly tried fixing it and everyone ignored us. We moved ourselves to a different table. I ordered the most expensive entree, the tenderloin. Delicious. We also ordered 2 red wines the moment our entrees arrived. I received my glass of wine when practically my whole meal was done, I had two bites left on my plate. We also barely received a water refill before we got our wine. We ate pretty much our whole dinner without wine or water, how disappointing. The manager even walked by us, asked how our food was with our empty water cups, champagne glasses all lined up at the end of our table, a very obvious sign these needed removing and refilling. We commented the food was great and he walked away. Realizing neither our server or he would help, we quickly got his attention for more water. This still did not come out quickly, a few minutes later he came out with water for a new table and then slowly got ours. And again, my meal was practically gone by this point and we still had no wine to go with my $40 dollar tenderloin. Instead of leaving a great review about the food, which I would had loved to do, I was left feeling very disappointed with the lazy service. If someone orders the 40 dollar 8 oz tenderloin again, you bet they are going to want to enjoy with their wine and hey, a glass of water would help as well, thanks a lot.

    The food was generally quite good. Service not so much. Items not ordered brought to table, taken away, then charged on bill. Misinformation regarding allergens in food caused daughter to have severe allergic reaction. Management only offered to remove appetizer. For more than $200 spent on Father's Day dinner, would have expected better.

    This was a really great experience. The food was exceptional and the service was excellent. I think it might get really loud when it’s full, but we were there early and it was not too bad. There is a lot of competition in Fort Collins and this place is more than up to the challenge.

    Enjoyed for our daughters birthday - started with the broiled oysters and steak tartare …. Both were delicious. Main entrees - Quail (stuffed with andouille), Gnocchi with Chicken Pate, Shrimp and Grits - several folks had the same dish … all were enjoyed: Sweet birthday dessert - Baked Alaskan to celebrate - on the house ❤️ I would suggest prices are a little high for portions but for a special event - worth the splurge. Otherwise we are looking forward to coming back for happy hour … also our waitress was fantastic

    Food was bland. I swear they served us powdered eggs, bloody Mary had zero flavor, sausage under cooked, service was slow and the restaurant was dead. We are supposed to have Easter dinner here but will be canceling our reservation after our brunch experience. Not worth the money. Go to urban egg or snooze instead

    The food was mostly pretty good. The happy hour hamburger maybe could be more substantial, but the price matched the size. I'd be willing to pay more for a larger patty. The warm bread board was underwhelming. The focaccia was really good, but the other bread was dry and not very tasty on its own. Could've used a third type of bread.

    Staff was very nice, food was mediocre at best. My beef tenderloin was dry and overcooked. My husband's fish and chips were inedible. It was as if the fish had been deep fried multiple times to keep warm. Bread board was dry boring, not much of a "board" with half a loaf of cold sourdough and two pieces of fuchsia. I was told that it can be "hit or miss" after the fact, guess we were on a miss night. On a bright note, we walked through the lobby and the jazz band play was absolutely phenomenal!!!

    Excellent food and service. The restaurant has a creative breakfast/brunch menu with beautiful presentation and a friendly, attentive staff. Pancakes were perfect with crisp edges and a fluffy, fruity Center. Eggs and biscuits cooked just to order with a unique sausage gravy. The hostess was efficient and welcoming, Alexandria was knowledgeable and gracious in her service. The dining room has a cool, artsy/diner vibe and is not too noisy even when full. Overall an excellent meal experience.

    Had an 8:15pm - was made to feel rushed to order. Honestly the rudest server I’ve come across lately. We ended up just having apps cause we were so put off. Asked for a wine menu and was told I could browse the shelves. Wasn’t there to shop. You know I always think I’m going to have a different experience here - third time now I just leave disappointed. Also your cheese boards are super gross. The edges all have a layer of gunk on them and need to be scrubbed off.

    Portions are small for what you pay. Husbands salmon was really undercooked, which they rectified by taking a $6 appetizer Off. Overall food and service were good outside of the salmon.
