    Mediocre experience. Every single dish was terribly seasoned. Service was well-meaning but poorly informed. Ambiance was very nice. Zero options for kids. I would not eat here again if you paid me.

    Food was mostly really good, but had to send back a pasta dish billed as freshly made al dente pasta which was inedible and hard and nowhere near al dente. Service was extremely poor, slow, and disappointing.

    Started great. Ordered drinks and food. Then never saw the waitress again. I wanted to order another drink but no luck. The pasta was hard which is strange for fresh pasta so we should have taken it back but no one came to check in on us. The place looks great but it ends there.

    Delicious and innovative food, perhaps the best we’ve had in West County. Loved the small plate/family style options and the friendly service.

    We came for our anniversary dinner. They were accommodating in allowing us to have drinks outside before starting our dinner. They mistook my drink order and got me the wrong drink. Luckily my server caught it. However when it came to dinner, my husbands allergy was clearly noted and discussed with the server noting no nuts or sesames with each dish arriving. However, we received the tostada which was full of sesame seeds. Luckily we caught it but were charged for the dish. But insult to injury, they offered a substitute dish and then charged us for it. While the staff means well - the poor execution and attentiveness of the kitchen and bar leave much to be desired. Wish I could have loved this place but doubt I will ever come back after these mistakes.

    Waited 12 minutes at our table before anyone greeted us. Waited another 21 minutes for a salad (that was brought to the table next to us twice mistake). Menu is lacking and limited. For the price point there shouldn’t be junk fees for “kitchen appreciation”. Gorgeous dinning room and bar area but would rather have better service and more food options. Plenty of other places near by to pick from.
