We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation. We were told there would be a table in 5 minutes and to wait outside on a bench... we waited for over 35 minutes.. were finally offered a seat at the bar. I think they gave our table to another couple and forgot about us. We left and crossed the street to eat at Creme de la Crepe. Terrible service.. and I wish they would stop sending me ads for their restaurant.

We had an outstanding experience. We had the flatiron steak and Yorkshire Pudding with this cranberry/carmelized onion relish and it was so good. I’m craving some right now as I write this. Our waitress was so helpful in making recommendations and she was so attentive and fun. We’re going to make this a favorite place to frequent 👍🏻

Loved the food!! Overall great experience, only “complaint” is that food arrived too quickly (entrees were given while we were still finishing apps). Our reservation was at 7:00, and we were pretty much stuffed and done by 7:30p. No time for 2nd glass of wine, and too full for dessert. But food was so good! Will definitely go back and recommend :)

Roasted chicken was quite bland. Pork sandwich was really heavy on the Siracha sauce. Nice atmosphere early, open air and pleasant. Beer and wine only with Wine cocktails. Underwhelmed. Overpriced for portion and flavor

This place has a nice menu, farm-to-table format with delicious options. I found the pricing high and the portions small, so felt somewhat cheated. Overall is a great place to dine, no doubt but I'm probably not returning.

The food and drink were exceptional as was the service provided by the bartender, servers and host. We had the short rib and the sea bass following the pear and burrata salad - scrumptious!. At the bartender's recommendation we finished with bread pudding, which is reason enough to return! The only drawback was the bar seating. We agreed to this seating as it was all that was left - didnt want to pass on the opportunity - but there are far too many bar stools at the counter for the dinner hour, leaving little to no elbow room or space behind the stools for patrons or waitstaff to easily get by. Recommend you book early and enjoy the setting!

Sub-par for the price point. They don't serve liquor so the cocktails are essentially mocktails and the food was alright. Sandwiches look like they would be great because they look really large but are actually essentially 80% sprouts. Very odd.

We beat the Valentine's crowd and arrived here at 5:30 on Feb. 13. It was quiet and we had a Happy Hour menu. The house Pinot was very smooth and nice; the flight of beer was fun and tasty. We had the cheese board for and shared it and it was very delicious. We both had the clam chowder and loved it! I had the poke tostada and couldn't eat the whole dish! It was very yummy and I recommended it to the people next to us. My husband had the fish tacos and enjoyed every bite. The place is small, quaint and quiet before 7:00 p.m. is the noise level is a factor for you. We enjoyed our evening very much.

Restaurant was extremely overcrowded and extremely LOUD. If there was any sort of an emergency it would have been extremely difficult to evacuate. Service was ok (waitress could barely walk among the tables), a server accidentally brought us the wrong dish but I thought we had ordered it and we started eating from it and the server took it away and I hope he didn't not serve it to the other table. I just thought the situation was mishandled.
