Bodega is the street level Tavern, that offers no frills cocktails in addition to draft beer and shots.

With a reservation, or if allowed admission from the Bartender upstairs, you can experience The Rest. It is a subterranean gem that looks like a bar that Hemingway would have built. Dark wood, taxidermy, old books and plenty of good whiskey. Perfect place for privacy and escaping the world for a minute... Or hours.

    The Rest was a super fun experience! The food was delicious, however they were understaffed so it took a very long time to get service. Unfortunately our appetizer came out stone cold and when we got our dessert (we ordered beignets and coffee) our beignets came out, but the coffee took an additional 45 minutes so we were unable to enjoy warm beignets and coffee. The roasted duck and pork tenderloin did come out hot! And it tasted amazing! I do feel bad for the staff, however it did lessen the experience a bit.

    In the space between curious and quirky there’s intrigue and interest; The Rest is that space. The cocktails were phenomenal — we started with a tiki-style cocktail and moved into the more traditional old fashioned with Honest John’s Coffee + Cherry bitters and another with the Black Walnut bitters. The meal was perfect. The bread, the burrata, the NY strip, and the lemon mousse were absolutely nailed. We’ll be back soon.

    I have always loved the rest and have been wanting to bring my boyfriend’s family there for months. When we finally made it, we received the worst service I have ever experienced. We waited an hour for each of our drinks and our food came out cold. We didn’t have the proper utensils to eat and none of dishes / glasses were being cleared. We were eating our dessert off our napkins with our hands and weren’t offered fresh plates or silverware until we were already done. The waitress was MIA the whole night and she totally ruined our experienced. I had to hunt someone down to pay and when we finally received the check an 18% gratuity was already included. We had a super unsatisfying conversation with the manager and left pretty upset. I was pretty embarrassed afterwards considering I had hyped this place up for months and was completely let down. Unfortunately I will not be returning but I hope management sees this and gets some better servers on board because it is seriously such a cool place.

    Appetizers, drinks and ambiance were great! Entrees were mediocre at best. Our waitress was very personable but it took more than 30 minutes to get 3 drinks and then the second order of drinks didn’t come for half the table.

    Everything was INCREDIBLE until the last 20 minutes of our reservation. I have never been asked to leave my table to make room for other people, but our server did just that. I had to wait 20-30 minutes for the second cocktail I ordered and I wasn't even halfway finished with it before our server asked us to leave. I asked if I could finish my drink I waited so patiently for first and then also pointed out there were TWO empty tables behind us. We had been having the best time celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary until this happened. It really put a very sour taste in my mouth. I do understand there is a limit to how long you can be at a table with a reservation (2 hours for 2 people) and we were not at that time limit before we were asked to leave. Very unprofessional and unnecessary, seeing as how there were 2 empty, available tables.

    Chic and fantastic environment. Beautiful decor with a wide array of musical choices - loved the record player! Food was delicious - a new menu was released and we tried the steak and duck, both were phenomenal. We also experienced a number of appetizers - the burrata was my favorite! Craft cocktails were magical - some of the best drinks and bartenders in town. We ordered the old fashioned flight with delicious local bitters - each drink was unique and tasty. Service was excellent. Our server was kind, diligent, and wonderful. Very impressed with this hidden gem.

    Food was appalling and I was embarrassed at how much the quality of The Rest has tumbled. For years The Rest has been my go-to for out-of-town guests, but I won't risk the embarrassment again. Food was inedible. I had the burrata starter and the croutons were so hard I couldn't safely chew without breaking a tooth. The almond encrusted scallops had no almonds. Heirloom tomatoes in both dishes were overwhelming- I got about a pound of sloppily cut, unseasoned tomatoes in each. The drinks were poorly mixed with wrong ingredients (ginger beer in what was supposed to be a lemongrass blueberry mocktail). I was too embarrassed to complain about the food in front of my guests, so I just left hungry. Our server was lovely, but inattentive and didn't question why food and drinks were left untouched. This experience is a 180 from the excellent dinner just a few months ago. So bummed.

    Our mixologist/host took what we wanted in a drink and turned it into an interactive experience. How? One of our drinks was on fire. Steel straw served as a muddler for the mint. The meal was also interactive in that we could compose each steak piece into a unique composition. One warning, tomato tartine was spicy, and I don’t mean Utah spicy.

    Food was over priced for what it was. All the dishes our group ordered were underwhelming. The duck was cooked poorly and the risotto wasn’t creamy. The service was so slow we were at the table for 2.5 hours after waiting 30 min after our reservation time to be seated.

    The ambiance is fantastic. The food was completely uninspired. It felt as if the chef was "reaching" for fine dining cuisine, but fell dismally short. The service was good, but did not make up for the lack-luster food. I wish we had only gone for cocktails at the bar and had dinner elsewhere.

    We ordered the charcuterie board for 4 as an appetizer, however it was served with all of our entrees about 45 minutes into waiting, despite ordering it ahead of time. We had to send back two of the four entrees, because one was cold (the fried steak) and the other was over cooked and extremely dry (pork tenderloin). The other two entrees we ordered were the scallops, both of which were also unfortunately over cooked, however we were starving and they were edible, so we chose to keep them. There also seemed to be organizational issues going on behind the scenes. While the cocktails we ordered were excellent, it always took about 30 minutes after putting in the order to receive them, which considering the place was not that busy, seemed a bit unreasonable. 2 stars because the cocktails and ambience were excellent. I’m not sure if there was a recent change in staff, but I would not order food from here. Drinks? Absolutely, but definitely not food.

    I heard great things about Rest, but we were so disappointed. We had two servers that did not communicate well. They forgot our appetizers, one main meal came out before the appetizers. They did not enter two of the three main course meals and served one dessert before the main course. They then forgot the second dessert entirely. The risotto was bland. The scallops were the highlight of the night. They were delicious. I seldom write a bad review, but this was not the experience I was hoping for.

    Cool ambiance. Better at the bar compared to the tables/booths downstairs. Food is unique but unfortunately the menu had changed since we were there last and we were hoping to enjoy a couple of the same items as last time. Steak wasn't cooked properly. Prices continue to increase so its a date night/special occasion only place at this point. Love the cheap tequila shots upstairs (bodega) and the plethora of herbs on the bar and vinyl music playing downstairs (the rest).

    It was a pretty cool place to be. The problem was not the service or the ambiance, it was the food. There are very few choices, which many restaurants do because they want the quality of the food to be perfection. With such a small specific menu, you think they would have figured out how to make each item perfectly, but I was disappointed. Someone needs to learn to salt the meat well before they cook it. I had the deep fried filet, although confused why you would deep fry a filet, and I enjoyed it. The pork and chicken at the table left a lot to be desired as they were both over cooked, with a delicious sauce that may have been there to try and hide the cook on the meat. The protein is everything in a meal, but the sides also disappointed me. If you cut vegetables unevenly, they cook unevenly, and some of my carrots were not cooked enough. I have to say though, their Charcuterie Board was delicious. Overall, I think it has potential, but they are going to have to reevaluate their menu and their commitment to that menu. I didn’t taste the love that I usually taste in food that is comparable in price. I think that was the most disappointing part. Love their wine menu.

    The ambiance was good and the food was decent. I didn’t feel the cost was worth it though. Server wasn’t very good. My wife was almost finished with her wine (8oz pour) before I received my drink, and we eventually asked another server to check where my drink was.
