    Love the ambiance and the view. The menu is being built up so do not rely on posts you see with old menus. Best to call. We love going. Parking is difficult as it’s downtown but the valet parking is only 15.00

    Our group of three enjoyed a Friday 5:30p dinner before going to a 7:30p concert at the Toyota Center. I think almost everyone in the restaurant was doing the same so there was a slight delay in receiving our cocktails and they were out of salmon. Aside from that the service was great and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend!

    We had reservations for a table in the bar (by request) and it was ready when we arrived. Greeting by the receptionist and bar tender when we arrived was friendly and accomodating. We actually had a bottle of wine and ate from the starters menu because we like all of the offerings (we had four this night plus dessert). Service was fast and friendly, food was exactly as described, arrived in a reasonable time (at the correct temperature) and was delicious. Service was attentive, but not "hovering." Couldn't have asked for better service or food this trip!

    Lovely interior facing discovery green. Menu is short and could be expanded. I ordered the filet MR and it was cooked perfectly but it could have used just a bit more broccoli and mashed potatoes to round it out. Espresso martini was perfect. Wine list could also be expanded: why not have Pinot Grigio from Italy instead of Pinot Gris from Oregon or New Zealand?

    Disappointed. Not as good as it has been in the past. Eaten there many times and while I like the location it was too loud to enjoy conversation with dinner guest. Rolls were stale and dry and value for the money not as good as in the past. Also menu offered to Open Table not what was available.

    noise level was not "energetic," it was incredibly loud to the point of feeling physical discomfort. as for the food, there are zero dairy free options for appetizers and one entrée that is dairy/meat free. we ate as quickly as possible so as to leave in a hurry. further, valet offered to park close by because we had a concert to attend but took over 20 minutes to come back with our vehicle. it seems only highly luxury vehicles are permitted in the parking lot (and this is by no means any type of luxury dining), but ours was just a chevy tahoe- still paid $20 to valet. that's just ridiculous. we came here because of the close proximity to the toyota center but will not be returning. the food was not terrible but was just okay. we noticed another party of 3 leave before being seated due to the noise level.
