    First timer but not last time. Met friends and enjoyed the food & service. Good music mix was playing in the background loud enough to hear but allowed for conversations to be heard easily.

    Great food, great service except for waiting a bit for someone to take our drink order and the waiting quite a bit to take our food order. But once everything was ordered, the food was worth the wait and the staff was pleasant. We had a good time.

    Service was poor. Appetizers came out at the same time as meals. One meal came out 30min after the rest of the food. Table remained covered with empty plates and glasses. Server did not offer drink refills until after meals came. Once a refill was requested, they did not come out until everyone was done eating. Long story short, I won’t be going back. Lots of better options on the hill.

    At 9pm, when there were very few people in the restaurant, there was simply no excuse for the terrible service we received. The waitress was, HANDS DOWN, the worst server I have ever had. It took 30 minutes for our first round of drinks to come, appetizers took forever, and I had to ask for a water refill 3 times before it got filled. Absolutely awful. The manager came over and asked if we needed anything. We asked for a to-go box and the check. He instead went on his phone and had a little chit chat with the hostess. The food was fantastic, but it shouldn’t come with a side of terrible service.

    This place does not disappoint. Food is consistently good. Laid back atmosphere, and the service is great. Brunch is a must! Can’t beat the $15 bottomless mimosas & bloodies. Ask to sit in Shakira’s section! She took care of us and was really attentive and personable.

    This was actually the second (and last) time my wife and I ate here. We came here about a month ago because ti was the only place on Federal Hill that had last minute reservations for Valentines Day (which should have been a clue), and the food then was horrible. I rarely complain, but did that time, and the waiter (who was really great) asked the manager to comp us a gift card for a free app next visit. So, we came back, again because it was last minute, and the only place with reservations open near the time we needed. Service again was great, but food was TERRIBLE. The carne asada in the tacos was half gristle, the fries tasted like they had been out of the fryolator for an hour, and chicken sandwich sauce tasted like iodine (GROSS), and I couldn't take more than three bites.
