I have been recently and in the past. The food and service have always been exemplary. I love the location, near the museums an Nation Gallery. The perfect place for business meals, celebrating with friends, treating out of town guest. I will be back.

Surprised that the Saturday brunch menu was entirely “dim sum”. Actually small plates of this and that vaguely oriental. I was never sure what I was eating. It was IK but unremarkable. What was bad was the monotonous thumping music. Good wine.

A return visit, and a nice space as always (although I miss sitting upstairs for lunch). My biggest lament about the restaurant is seeing the exact same menu for eons, meaning I have now had the same salad about 8 times in a row cause of lack of other appealing choices.

My sister and I wanted a break from our typical work week and I wanted to try out The Source for Restaurant Week. Very happy that we did! We both liked the food - the salmon in the Salmon Duo was super soft and buttery. The flavors in the soft crab dish were reminiscent of what would be served at a Chinese banquet. The service was fantastic - everything refilled, we were checked on but it wasn’t intrusive. Would recommend to others for a nice dinner date!

LOVED IT! The bartender was nice enough to allow me to taste two of the rosès before selecting one. Service was good, very quick so we never really got a waiter it was more like everyone servicing the tables. Dinner was amazing. Restaurant week menu was vegetarian friendly. I actually finished my entire plate which I almost never do! Would definitely come again!

I went there expecting to find interesting variations on Chinese food. The food was interesting but not as good as I had hoped-- didn't seem worth the cost. The menu did not offer a wide range of options, and there was not much (except dumplings) that I would consider a variation on Chinese food.

The service was friendly and professional.

We went during restaurant week. The service was excellent and the wine was great. The first course (salmon sashimi and roll) was quite basic. We ordered Impossible dumplings which were interesting because they were vegan and tasted quite similar to meat potstickers - a good replacement for a new vegetarian/vegan. The main course - we had the dan dan noodles and the fried crab - was good and flavorful. The dessert was well executed (carrot cake and sesame brownie sundae), if a bit ordinary. A good experience but not necessarily groundbreaking for the promise of fine dining and the accompanying price.
