I was disappointed that they did not have heaters around every table. It was a rather chilly night and I assumed an upscale outdoor dining experience would have heaters for all the tables. The food was good; however, I felt it was more tapas and appetizer like. Not a good choice if you want a hearty sit down meal.

Food was delicious, although for the price of the charcuterie board, I expected a lot more meats and cheeses. There was only a tiny portion of honey and zero fruit. I believe we paid $28 for the small charcuterie board we received, and the taste and/or options did not match that price.

Despite having an ample number of space to distance the different tables, everyone was seated close together. There was a large party seated next to us that was so close my chair almost touched the people behind me. That group consumed most of our waitress’ attention once there and was so loud there were times I had trouble hearing my friend speak. Great venue otherwise and the food is typically excellent.

No one came to help us when seated. We wanted to moved to another side of the rooftop where there was only one group of people seated. Our hostess never came back, so we left after about 15 min.

Oddly enough, we were the only African Americans there. Makes you wonder ....

Had to wait 20 minutes even though we had a reservation. Tried to put us outside where it was cold, windy, and wet. Not a nice dining experience, the heaters do not keep up. The people sitting out there were in winter coats. There were open tables inside and we asked to be seated at one and were not allowed. It was already 8pm so I doubt they were going to be used. We left.

When we got to the restaurant, they walked us to “our table” and there was not a table available. We stood there while they walked around trying to look for a spot, then told us we could split our party into 2 tables of 4 which didn’t not work for us. Ended up in the bar area and made the best of it. Super disappointed that our reservation was not honored.

My best girl friend and I came here to celebrate my engagement. We did brunch and bottomless mimosas. Our server checked on us often, brought refills timely and without being asked, and was very good at recommendations from the menu. We had a great time and will be back again. Only point of improvement would have been if they closed the door to the far patio. The servers had it propped open for some unknown reason and it made many of the patrons cold. Eventually someone spoke up and it was closed - right before we left. Did not overshadow our wonderful experience.

The only available seating online was the standard seating, so I chose that. I went into this fine with the fairly higher prices of the items, knowing that the restaurant is very nice with the nice view as well. However, when we got there, we (2) were sat at a table on the ground head level with the ledge of the window, one seat was adjacent to the wall the window was on. So, yes I was a little disappointed that I had to look at the brick wall all night.
