Had dinner here with a group of friends for my 40th birthday. Service was top-notch, food was great, and they adjusted tables to fit our needs. I'd highly recommend it.

they don't do breakfast well. drinks and dinner i've been told are quite good here, by many people, but i think breakfast is a new thing for them during COVID and they still need to figure it out. not a great spot for kids, and we had a little one in tow.

Was a very nice meal. I just wish my server came around a little bit more often than she did l, but other than that she was fantastic and the food was amazing.

Some of the entrees I've had here have been fantastic, but our lunch today was just bland. Nothing really wrong, but the price is off for the food quality. Service was great, drinks are priced right. Great spot for happy hour bites, less awesome for a big meal.

The Lox and Bagel was amazing. It was so delicious and filling that I could only eat one half. The service was great! If you are with a party of two or more for brunch, I highly recommend the mimosa bottle service.

Food was great , server not so great . She would would go check on other tables and complete ignore us . Didn’t help that we were the only table with people of color. She had a bad attitude and was rude . It was disappointing because I have been there multiple times before and never experienced this level of service.

Really nice, low-key place with a solid menu of delicious lighter options from pizzas to fish dishes and pastas. My entree was delicious - the Halibut - and seemed to be a 600-700 calorie meal. This is really handy when you are trying to watch your weight but still would like a nice dining experience. The patio overlooking Shoal Creek was perfect at 7PM; the crowd was very pleasant, heavily younger people, but a nice mix of ages including several retired couples. I dinged the service one star because our server left us unattended for quite awhile. However, she was very pleasant (and apologetic) and overall we had a wonderful evening.

Perfect outdoor dining spot downtown - where you don't feel like you're downtown. Quiet, pretty & the perfect brunching beats.

We were seated outside on the patio, which was wonderful, as we didnt want to sit near others especially during covid-19. Let me say, first the Food was excellent and our waitress was superb. However, though the outside patio wasn't crowded upon our arrival, it did get pretty crowded halfway during our meal. I felt the Tables were not placed far enough apart and there were some pretty large groups surrounding our table. Secondly, we noticed a young man (I'm assuming a manager) walking around to greet everyone and asking if they needed anything.... except for our table. We watched him greeting, smiling and talking to everyone at their tables, thinking he'll make his way to ours as well. Unfortunately, he walked right past us and we weren't even acknowledged. I dont want to sound ugly, however, we were the only table of color, and the only table he didnt greet..... just saying. Overall, the service, food and ambience was nice.
