    First time here. Took a dear friend (from out of town) and Scotch lover for dinner. Started with one of the tasting flights which we really enjoyed. We also shared 4 small plates for dinner, which were excellent. I look forward to returning especially with their guest chef model. I anticipate continued exciting menus as new chefs come it, and plan on joining the Scotch club!

    We enjoyed most of the food and cocktails we ordered. I told the server that I am a vegetarian and asked about a specific dish being meat free, she assured me it was but, to my surprise, I bit into a piece of ham! Otherwise, the food was good. The table we sat at was quite cold, as it was near the entrance. I wouldn't recommend sitting near the hostess stand, as you don't get a to enjoy the ambiance and on a cold winter night you'd be hard pressed to take your coat off.

    Great atmosphere. Interesting and tasty Tapas (small plates) We ordered the garlic shrimp (comes with bread), and brussel sprouts to share. Excellent choices. Also the cauliflower and broc fritters. Nice and crispy outside and soft inside but need a bit of seasoning. Quite tasteless- we thought. Look forward to returning to sample some more!

    Nicely decorated with pleasing atmosphere. Service was poor at best. The server was pleasant but very slow and took a long time to check in with us to see if we needed anything, which we did. Food was below average. Drinks were extremely disappointing with 2 different drinks being sent back because they were that bad. Overall, very disappointing experience.

    Drinks were fabulous as always. We both had an old fashioned. The menu was from ‘Hush’. We decided to try the spicy tuna roll. Omg it was absolutely delish! We also ordered the wagyu potstickers, they were mouth watering and the short rib tacos, which were the perfect size and packed with so many flavors. The table next to us got the charcoal grilled octopus, which is one I was contemplating. It looked so good I just had to order it. And so happy we did! The octopus was cooked and flavored to perfection, but the crispy sopressata and roasted garlic just add an amazing touch! We gave it 4 stars because the drinks took a bit, although it is mostly a cocktail bar and each drink is worth the wait.

    Food was very interesting, and the concept of a revolving chef is very cool. Service was abysmal, though. We had a rather light dinner and it took almost 3 hours. Also rather pricey for what it was.

    Aside from the fried chicken skin "Potato chips" which were really gross (seriously) and the very tiny high top (our knees were touching - way to small for four people) , it's a good place for shared plates but not for dinner. We ended up leaving and eating somewhere else. Service was good though. Very nice people.

    What a swanky little bar we stumbled upon!! I found this place on a review site for best places to drink in Boston and boy is it!!!! The ambiance is playfully dark and sophisticated but the drinks and bartenders liven it up. The menu is amazing. Our waitress said it changes every six months. We got the sliders and pork tacos. Great choices. And our drinks were outstanding. A bit pricey but worth it for a nice night out.

    Honestly, I didn't remember how LOUD this place was, so that was actually a negative. The service was fine, but not outstanding. They seemed a little overwhelmed. We only got one drink because despite our first drinks having been consumed before our meal arrived, our waitress never gave us another opportunity to order another. We were sitting at a high top, and my stool was broken, (no foot rest), so that was uncomfortable. The food was good, as were the cocktails.
