The wait staff were all fantastic and very knowledgable about the menu. We were never waiting too long on anything. All the food was delicious. Lots of aromatics. All kinds of interesting flavors that melded together perfectly. The cocktails were fun and tasty. Lots of great wines to choose from. The atomosphere is funky and artsy, but not in an annoying way. All the textures work together well. Our group had a great experience and we plan on coming back. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Had my 21st birthday dinner here and my friends and I felt like a million bucks. Wait staff were perfect, the food was absolutely amazing, and the dessert platter was to die for. Couldn't have had a better experience.

The food was excellent! Our server was so nice and gave amazing suggestions and was really able to answer all questions happily. The food is on the pricey side but the taste and curation of ingredients really makes every bit worth it!

The design of the restaurant truly gives an experience like no other!!

Definitely coming back again!

The waitress was extremely rude and prejudice. She treated us as if we didn’t know anything or couldn’t afford anything because of the color of our skin. The night club was also very prejudice. If the waitress didn’t treat us the way she did along with the nightclub, I would’ve given the restaurant 5 stars.

Ordered drinks, food, and desert and all were above expectations. The skirt steak was soft and not leathery. Fish was filleted and came out as though it was still one piece. Try the smoky chocolate mouse yummy and the presentation is great. Just a fun delicious place. Highly recommend. Oh yea staff supper friendly.

This was terrible I waited 2 hours for a table even with a rsvp I sat down at 11pm my food came out at 12:15 the chicken was so raw when the manager came out to the table he was so embarrassed all of ordered the same meal and the charge for all 3 meals were taken off the bill the vibe is nice but not worth the hype
