Bartenders very attentive & accommodating. Waitresses always checking on us & knowledgeable. Food was great but Brussel sprouts soggy not crisp didn’t even take but 2 bites. Ahi nachos amazing & pretzel bites. Loved cucumber/grapefruit martini w agave.

It was very disappointing this time. One person ordered the “lobster Mac n cheese” it came out almost cold and it did not have lobster. They had used imitation crab instead of actually using lobster. It tasted like velveta shells and cheese. We were sat at an awkward location. The table was not big enough and we were on a sofa. It made it very difficult to eat dinner. Usually this place is great, but this time it was under par for sure. The waitress was not very attentive which isn’t normal either. We must have just hit a bad night there.

They said they could not find our reservation through Open Table. They accommodated us but said we had to be gone in two hours so the next reservation wasn’t impacted. Too many college kids and way too loud especially for 5:30 pm. I just wanted to tell the staff that I guarantee we tip better then 10 students trying to split a bill 10 ways. Won’t be back until school is over for the year.

Finally found a parking space within several blocks of the restaurant and fed the meter. Walked to the restaurant, arriving probably 10 minutes before our 6pm reservation. Was informed by the hostess that she did not have a reservation for us. She told us the entire restaurant had been rented out for an event. We were told by Open Table that someone would contact us beforehand if they needed to change the time. We never heard from anyone either by phone or email. The restaurant did seem to be loud and a bit disorganized. We left and walked about a block to Sycamore Restaurant and had a very pleasant, quiet meal.

We love this place and eat here every time we are in Columbia, MO! I don't even eat sandwiches; but the Chicken Asiago is to die for!
