Nice restaurant, lovely eclectic menu. Small plates were yummy. Tried the bison short ribs and found the meat rather tough (?not slow cooked enough?). Wine selection good but excessive markup. Waiter good but tended to push expensive items and was not very warm.

The steak was not cook properly and the veggies was burned.
Very small portion and expensive for what you get

I loved the appetizers and desert. Great vegetarian options. My husband found there were too many toppings on his burger. 7 dollars for tea was a little much, but still tasty.

All the criticism of recent reviews was accurate. Although the service was excellent, the portions were extremely small (especially for the cost) and the appetizer and mains came out one on top of the other, feeling rushed. We ordered cocktails and neither of them were enjoyable. The description of my drink in the menu was not accurate (described as though it would be sour and citrus but was actually quite syrupy and overly sweet). The dessert was completely fine but not redeeming enough. Our server was absolutely lovely and the ambience was nice but I would not go back.
