This restaurant feels much more like a bar than a restaurant --very noisy and people standing right next to your booth because of the high pub tables. Food was good and so was the beer however.
We were seated at a corner table on the 2nd floor in an area that had just a few other occupied tables. It was a Saturday night at 7:45[, bit not very busy at all. Despite this, no one came by for at least 15 minutes. Once the waiter arrived he took my drink order and then disappeared for another 10 minutes. Fed up at this point, we walked out. We mentioned to the hostess that we were leaving because we were basically ignored and her only responses was "Oh, wow. Sorry." No offer to fix the situation or seat us elsewhere. Later that night another member of the waitstaff saw us walking down the street behind the building after having dined elsewhere. She recognized us and apologized for the misunderstanding. Nice gesture but too little, too late. Will never go there again but as I know understand it they are closing in January. I can see why!
This establishment is under new ownership. The menu currently on open table is not the current menu. The previous menu was more in the style of a gastropub. The current menu is simple bar food. Stay away from the flat bread. There is nothing flat about it. The burgers are ample sized but tasteless. This place has devolved into nothing more than a bar that serves food.
We had great service - both from the host and the server. But the menu is very limited and boring. There are just so many other options in the area. This building has changed hands so many times - it is in a great location and should entice a really good restaurant. this isn't it.
the hostess kept trying several times to seat people in the middle of the room when booths were available. food was ok, nothing bad but nothing spectacular either, though.
We had a really good time. There were just two of us but it seemed all the servers were involved in serving us. We sat upstairs, the food and drinks were delicious. Thanks.
Several great beers on tap. Very large place (3 floors). Server was attentive but we were one of 2 tables in that area. Our food selection and taste was good. However they messed up the sauce on our appetizer and also messed up how two meals were cooked. The steak was supposed to be mr, it was well. Our burger was supposed to be well, it was mr. But noone came to check if everything was even ok. Luckily were not super picky so we at it and flavor was good.
We stopped in after some shopping and had a very nice and relaxing lunch upstairs. The food does not disappoint and we always have great service.
Food, although not on the healthy side, was very good. Service was very good. Did not get to the rooftop patio but plan to go there next time, would be a great atmosphere on a fall evening.
We had a great experience with our monthly dinner group last night. The food, ambiance and especially our server, Stephanie, made for a memorable evening. Several of our group had never been there but said they would definetly return.
