    Different foods. I had the salmon cakes and a house salad. The salmon cakes had too much mayonnaise - not much salmon in them. I would not order those.

    I am never disappointed with the food that I order. I always look forward to the summer when the grill opens and the walleye tacos return.

    The place is super cute and service was really fantastic. The menu is large and creative and the food tasted excellent! The noise is really too much however. We were there at lunch time and there were 3 crying babies who were all so loud and the place amplified the crying/screaming. We could not even hear our server talk about the specials. I would recommend going after the large lunch group - perhaps dinner may be more quiet. I would recommend going - the food is very good.

    I put my hands under the chair to pull myself up to the table and stuck my hand in something sticky and disgusting. That kind of ruined it for me. My food was not what I expected. It was not as good as it was when I’ve been there in the past.

    The food here is always good. It is tasty and a lot of attention is paid to details. It's not "twee" or "precious". It's just creative and good!

    Our server, Maya, was great. She understood my allergies and totally looked out for me. Our meals were delicious and well presented. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Excellent unique small plates. Our server was Christopher and was fairly new and you would have thought he had been there for years. His menu knowledge and smooth friendly demeanor enhanced our experience.
