    We were sitting on the outdoor sidewalk portion of the restaurant. This is very pleasant, except for the occasional motorcycle going by slowly. Staff and the food were very nice.

    1.I was disappointed with my meal. The cranberry rice doesn’t pair well with the chicken. The tartness and wet/soggy texture was so off with my chicken dish. The sauce was delicious, but salty. 2.Server rushed to us to order, our table was filled with our starter and main course. And, drinks we were rushed to order. Meal got cold by then we were ready to eat. 3. I specifically made a request for a candle and dessert, as it was my friend’s birthday. Dessert Menu wasn’t even offer to honour birthday request. Just the cheque.

    Gorgeous decor, great location in Yorkville. Our server Derrick was a total hoot! He was charming, efficient and gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    Moved tables as was perched beside reception desk. Quickly accommodated. Food good as it usually is. Didn’t appreciate tables being sprayed with cleaner right next to us as we ate though.

    Came here for Mother's day, service was extremely curt and slow, and our apps, bread, and dessert were all but forgotten about. It was also super loud in the dining room. Food was mediocre at best.

    Mother's Day brunch...the glasses smelled putrid. Our server was kind enough to comp the bottle of water and replace our glasses, but clean your dishwasher folks...makes for a stinky experience.
