I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and it was just as wonderful as we remembered it being a few years ago when we went. I actually ordered the same drink (as a mocktail since I’m pregnant—they killed it) and one of the same entrees, the tenderloin. Just as good as we remembered if not better and everything else was amazing too...especially the rabbit pie which I’ve never had before :) perfect dinner spot for a cozy intimate date night. Thank you!

This a cute comfort food spot! Great unique place to take friends and family without being too elaborate or unacceptable to those with discriminating pallets. Had a family event here (pre-COVID). Great place for small gatherings.

We had a lovely lunch. The food and service were both very good. We were disappointed not to have been able to order high tea as our reservation was for 2pm and high tea is not served until 3:30.

Our first time dining out in seven months! We ate outside. Not a scenic setting, but we were on a side street with very little traffic. Tables were distanced. Wait staff were masked and didn't come close. Felt very safe.

Great staff greeting. Bar seating. Server was pleasant and patient. Drinks took a while to arrive but apps were served quickly. Pei oysters and deviled eggs which were on point. Fish and chips were tasty but the fish batter was a tad bit salty.

The service is perfect, the ambiance is a nice irish pub feel perfect for an intimate date by the fireplace or a celebration with friends in a large room. The drinks are well made, food is filling and presents well. We always have a great experience here. We recommend the ricotta as a starter!

Noise level is only because of 2 kids screaming next to our table. This old pub ambiance is great, so was our waitress. Food was average and they are not really ready for non gluten options. Disappointing coming from a Steven Starr restaurant.

Every time I eat here I ask for “over medium eggs” because the chef makes their fried eggs undercooked. And even with saying over medium I still get eggs that aren’t even cooked to over easy. It’s still gelatin form in some areas, so gross. I don’t know who would ever eat their eggs like this. Seriously, cook your fried eggs to how your customers ask. This has happened to my friends and family too on other occasions.
