    The place is an old run down building where they tried shove in as many tables as possible hence ambience is terrible. Service is pretentious like they are doing you a favor to eat there. Waitress is under staffed and has way too many tables. Very over priced. Now that I beat them up Fabulous food so you need to ask yourself is it worth it. Not for me

    Loved this restaurant. Warm, classy, casual, creative fresh meals beautifully prepared. Wonderful staff. Cocktails creative and delightful. I had the mushroom (homemade) pasta. Divine! Everything was fresh, creative and delicious. The service was outstanding. Victoria, our waiter, and the entire staff were perfectly attentive. Perfect date night. Or any night! Loved it all. Highly recommend.

    We had a party of 4 seated outside. Great heaters. The tbone sliders were extremely tasty and well presented. Could be shared. The fish is the day, the branzino was beautifully presented and excellent. Could also be split. The crab spaghetti was split and it made a perfect entree. For dessert the tiramisu was amazing and the chocolate sorbet with caramelized banana was lovely. We haven’t eaten at SYV kitchen since it first opened and we’re not overwhelmed with it at all. Now it’s a fantastic dinner event

    The food overall was very good, except for the meatball appetizer which we sent back due to being tasteless. That night they were trying out several new cocktails, one of which we really liked. Seabass was superb and the service was outstanding. A bit pricey, but worth, paying for good food and service.

    Our server Matthew did a 10/10 job, we decided to let him guide our meal and he did not disappoint. Will be returning again and again.
