    First time here. Took a dear friend (from out of town) and Scotch lover for dinner. Started with one of the tasting flights which we really enjoyed. We also shared 4 small plates for dinner, which were excellent. I look forward to returning especially with their guest chef model. I anticipate continued exciting menus as new chefs come it, and plan on joining the Scotch club!

    We enjoyed most of the food and cocktails we ordered. I told the server that I am a vegetarian and asked about a specific dish being meat free, she assured me it was but, to my surprise, I bit into a piece of ham! Otherwise, the food was good. The table we sat at was quite cold, as it was near the entrance. I wouldn't recommend sitting near the hostess stand, as you don't get a to enjoy the ambiance and on a cold winter night you'd be hard pressed to take your coat off.

    Disappointing- very friendly staff could not overcome the loudness and food preparation. It does seem as if they buy good quality food to start though. My steak was comp’d by the manager

    Great atmosphere. Interesting and tasty Tapas (small plates) We ordered the garlic shrimp (comes with bread), and brussel sprouts to share. Excellent choices. Also the cauliflower and broc fritters. Nice and crispy outside and soft inside but need a bit of seasoning. Quite tasteless- we thought. Look forward to returning to sample some more!

    Everything great overall. Crowd noise a little loud vs music and when trying to converse. Have to yell.
