    Great experience, but I would HIGHLY recommend that you change the seating area up front that you use for “2 people” reservations. The tables should be back to back it causes the 3 chairs to constantly hit one another and leaves little to NO ROOM for the server to walk thru.

    Made reservations ahead of time put in a request for a booth also some type of birthday celebration (cake, pie, ice cream, etc). Upon arrival there was no greetings had to wait to be seated then was told there was no booth available. Also did not get any celebration which I requested when I made the reservations. The food was great and the waitress was okay.

    Place is cute but the food and condiments came out separately. By the time it was received food was cold. They fixed the problem quickly.

    We had a reservation for 10pm, which was later than what we wanted, but all that was available so i booked it. When we sat down, after about 5-7 minutes of waiting at the front, we were basically told to order all of our food and drinks in the next 25 minutes because the kitchen was closing. We were then rushed through our meal. I get it, the kitchen is closing, but maybe stop seating at 9/9:30 to give your guests the experience they are paying for. Before we were 1/2 way done our appetizers our dinner was brought out and the small table left us with no room to move freely. The food was amazing! And i definitely will be back, just not at the 10pm reservation slot.

    It’s really nice in there but the restaurant is expensive for no reason and the lady at the door had a stank attitude the whole time. She made us wait 30 mins at the door because my whole party wasn’t at the restaurant yet and she told me we had an hour at the table. I will not be coming back.

    I did not like the food for the money I paid. But the service was incredible and the ambience was absolutely beautiful. The drinks was really good especially the lemon drop. Overall experience was good but the food was not to me my liking and I'm a foodie. I have experience some of the best restaurants and unfortunately I would not recommend this place for the food. But good music and drinks and a night out definitely.

    Food is awful. Crab dip is artificial crab (which is ridiculous since the apps cost just as much as entrees) Taiwanese wings very good. My husband took two bites of his filet which was cold and dry. I had the branzino. Not going to lie I wouldn’t have ordered this of I knew it was a whole fish. Could barely look at it. No flavor at all included the fried rice. Our bill was $350…half of that was drinks which average $20- so not worth it! Our server was nice but slow. They automatically receive 18% gratuity for doing the bare minimum. Take advantage of happy hour priced drinks and photo ops.

    Maybe my expectations were too high. The spring rolls were delicious and the edamame was the best I ever had with some sensational seasoning. The dumplings filling was very much and were not enjoyed. The music was much much too loud.

    The lighting/sound/decor is all really cool!!! The cocktails are soooooo sweet!!! ($17.00). Tried their wine and it too is so bad! Really really bad. Our server was distracted and sauntered around the restaurant, but not attending to us at all. VERY unfortunate. We had to keep flagging her down to order anything—- she couldn’t care less! The food runner nearly spilled an entire entree on me. It really and truly was pathetic service, below average food, but a really sexy restaurant mood. The best part of this restaurant would be your Insta pics.

    Love the ambiance and music here. Great setting for date night. The drinks are strong just how I like. Food is tasty but not spectacular. The waitstaff needs to be expanded or optimized to best provide efficient service. They always seem overwhelmed, though everyone is really friendly.

    The place is very nice. It’s Instagramable for a nice date spot but the service and food were not good. I may have ordered the wrong thing but no flavor at all. I saw someone else order lamb chops and they looked really good. Our waiter forgot to take our order. A manager came to check on us and had to take our order over an hour after being seated (we did get drinks and an app). Server was non attentive the whole night. Just a bad experience.

    Food was really good, i would Rate 10/10! Even tried something new. Now I must say for a Tuesday night the service was kinda slow, we waiting for a while EVERYTIME we ordered, even waiting for water took long. Beware that if you ask for a bottle of water it is not free and it’s a big jar.

    Our reservation was 5:00pm we ordered strawberry margaritas with sugar on the rim. The drinks came with salt and barely no strawberry flavor we ask for some strawberry syrup they charged us $4 for it. We order our appetizers at the time we order drinks one being a chicken Cesar salad that came at 6:15 and the chicken was under cooked. The salt and pepper shrimp is not for one who have high blood pressure. The staff just play and talk very slow The manger don't have a clue she acts like she scared of the staff. The cook or owner ( man with the tattoos) came from the back upset because we didn't like the food. This place is horrible. Tic toc video coming soon.

    Everything was perfect. From the time we arrived the vibe and atmosphere was so chill yet fun and when the DJ started playing music it got even better. Definitely 10 out of 10 in my book. The drinks are so good and not watered down and don’t get me started on the amazing food lol. Can’t wait to go back.
