I had eaten here before and thought it would be a great location to bring my employees for a post holiday celebration. The restaurant was pretty empty, maybe 2 or 3 other tables when we were seated. I was very disappointed at the service we received, it was made very clear to me that we were a bother to our waiter, he was not attentive or very polite. The star of the night though was the food. Everyone at the table raved about what they had for dinner, the taste, the presentation on the plate, everything food wise was outstanding! I hope this was just a bad night for our waiter, the food will bring me back again! More

To start off -- I'm a vegetarian, and I was still very happy with this meal! The market table has a ton of delicious fruits, salads, veggies, grains, etc. My meat-eating boyfriend was also very pleased, of course. More

The food was inventive, delicious, and well-portioned. The wine-by-the-glass list was expensive. A full bar would have been welcomed. The service was friendly, warm, and generous. I wish it were a bit less expensive. More

The food was better when we came here in 2013. Sort of disappointed by the meal we had on Friday. We had recommended it to friends who were supposed to join us but had to bail last minute. The restaurant was very kind to accommodate our reservation anyway; but I’m sort of glad our friends did not come because the food was heavy, without too much reward for the richness. Did not feel very good after the meal. Also, the options were not as great as they were the last time we were here. The fried cheese was exceptional, nothing else we ordered for food really made a positive impression. The chorizo and puff pastry was like a dressed up pig in a blanket. Puff pastry wasn’t fresh; meat was dry. The drinks are phenomenal, though. The passionfruit pisco sour (off-menu but they can make it) is something else – worth going there for the drinks, service and ambience for sure. Food could be elevated. I’m confident they can do it, the first time we came here was off the hook. More
