We expected to love this place and we were disappointed. The menu was interesting but the food (kale salad, smoked salmon apps; burger and pork tenderloin entrees) was salty and underwhelming. We would have ordered dessert to try but our server disappeared after dropping off our entrees.

We arrived at around 9 or so on a weeknight, and the place was completely dead. The service was anemic--it took an unbelievable eternity to get drinks delivered, when nobody was in the house--and, thankfully, the food was quite good. It's unlikely I'll return for dinner, though I once had a nice brunch there many months ago.

A low-key comfortable place near BAM with a menu that has something for everyone, meat eaters and vegetarians. Well prepared using seasonal fresh ingredients. Very pleasant ambience. Nice place to linger after a show.

The food was all very good, but apparently there is a new chef and s/he's done away with some standout goodies- notably, the biscuits used to be absolutely amazing and served with honey butter. Now they taste like any old biscuit. Also there used to be a dessert that was like a giant chocolate chip cookie cooked in a skillet with ice cream on top. The waiter said that's gone too.

This used to be such a gem.... The entrees were fine but the appetizers were just inedible - the kale salad was saturated in dressing and just gross...

The food was delicious- um, those biscuits with maple syrup and pecans are AMAZING. The service unfortunately needs to get better. They were all very nice, but everything took too long- to order the drinks, for the drinks to come, to order the food, for the food to come, etc. Plus they were out of a lot, but things that didn't make sense- the ingredients to make a cocktail with cucumber? vanilla ice cream? Plus online it says they have deviled eggs but they do not :(
