    Nice quiet place for a bite before a show at the Sinclair (upstairs). Downstairs seemed to have a busier scene.

    We arrived on time for our reservation and were promptly seated in a nice corner booth upstairs. We had a couple of (4) cocktails - each was great. The mussels appetizer was excellent. Once we started drinking, the breeze from the cent overhead was welcomed. The broth was layered exceptionally well. We asked for more bread to finish it off! The Nashville hot chicken sandwich was pretty good. I would have wanted a bun instead of the texas toast but the texas toast wasnt bad. The fries were hot but limp. My date had the bone broth burger. It was pretty good but thought bacon might've elevated it a notch. It wasnt a busy night. Our server was excellent. The restrooms were clean. The entrance is up a flight of stairs but I did see a lift for those who needed it.

    Overall it’s a very cool and eclectic place. Decor had cool vibe. Menu is small and funky...but we all found something we like and were pleased. Salmon was great as was hangar steak. Veggie burger was so-so. Very loud so was kind of tough to chat. Drinks were great. Parking right across street was a bonus.

    Nice place with great vegan/GF nachos. Are here prior to a show at the ART, and it was a good choice for us. Reasonable for the area and food was good. Hostess was very unpleasant, but server was great. Cocktails are small. Server appeared knowledgable about GF and dairy free options. Would eat here again.
