In a fit of nostalgia, I ordered the cheeseburger "medium rare," which seemed okay until I got more to the center and discovered it was uncooked. They made another one, which I would still have called "rare," but at least it was cooked. Also at that point I was midway through and didn't really want a replacement, I'd have been happier if it were just comped. That's on me, mostly, I could have just asked, but I'm not good at those things.

Pleasant enough place, I would definitely go back and not order beef, but I would probably try someplace else first.

Food was mediocre at best. Got the flank steak that was over cooked. Restaurant was very loud and it is difficult to talk.

Food was pretty good. Duck croquettes were especially delicious, hangar steak and pasta were both good. Nothing extraordinary. Good service, great atmosphere.

Food was o.k. Menu and ambiance have changed a lot in the past 2 years and since the opening of the restaurant. Waiter was very sweet but I wouldn’t go back. Cocktails were not very good.

Food was mediocre. Had the Brussels sprouts, which were drenched in vinaigrette. Gnocchi was a bit tasteless. My boyfriend had the steak and fries which was delicious, presentation was not great. Overall for the price, not with it. Would go back for cocktails at the bar which was really cool

Nice room reminiscent of a Parisian brasserie. Golds, mirrors and heavy curtains compliment an appealing bar.

The food was fine, the hangar steak tasty if not a bit salty. Brussel sprouts a bit over dressed and the salad did not quite cohere, it was barely the sum of it's parts.

Convenient to an event we attended, Fly Trap was satisfying but certainly not worth a detour.

Drinks were excellent, the food was quite good. I had the Brussels sprouts and risotto, and both were great. The waiter was very good at recommending drinks, and the drinks were excellent.

Sad to see this spot go downhill. The food was just okay but not near as flavorful or as inspired as it used to be with Hass at the ehlm brining great middle eastern spices and cooking methods. We had one very good waiter the others seemed upset that we were there and did not seem to be able to handle a moderately busy spot.
