I was a little disappointed with their menu as it relates to gluten allergies. I was drawn there because Worden Hall had a tag stating “gluten free options” and my girlfriend has a gluten allergy. It wasn’t until we were there that we realized that most of the items that says “Can be made gluten free” are cross-contaminated in the fryers (which is a problem for someone with celiac) . There were only 4 or 5 items on the menu that were truly gluten free, two of which were the salads. They also did not have gluten free buns for any of the sandwiches. I would suggest using a separate fryer and getting some gluten free buns to make this place more accessible to those with gluten allergies. Waitress left unattended for 20+ minutes at a time, but they were pretty busy so take that as you wish.

We only got drinks which were good and the atmosphere is nice.

The food came out of the kitchen super fast… But, it was the sloppiest omelette I think I’ve ever seen. This was surprising since the restaurant was not busy at all.

Visited during a trip to Southie on a Thursday early evening; had a 6PM reservation and we were seated early in a booth inside because it was so steamy outside. Indoor “ambiance” was fine and there was a nice bar area. The food and service were not so fine, mostly because the staff seemed under-trained and the food wasn’t well-prepared. We ordered the nachos, peach salad and a wood-fired specialty pizza and didn’t enjoy any of it b/c pizza was soggy and heavy, nachos were undercooked and cool, salad was warm. No drink refills were offered and our waitperson seemed confused about the menu and how to set up the table. The place wasn’t busy at all and they were staffed up, so it wasn’t a matter of not enough hands to do the work. The Fox & Knife right next door was busier, so we’ll probably try that next time.

We went here once for drinks and truffle fries and they were fresh and delicious. Then we went back for dinner and sorry it was a disappointment, except our waitress who was new and was a sweetheart. Pretty pricey cheesesteak sandwich., soggy crust pizza and cold fries this time. Disappointed.

We went here for Father’s Day brunch on Sunday. Food was delicious. Prices are very reasonable. Drinks were good too. We have been here before and will definitely be back. Both the owner and the GM stopped by our table to make sure everything was good, I love good service like that!

Nice open space, quiet Monday but gets busy later in the week. Food is solid, menu was limited and some items not available so check with server before you take a look at the menu to see what is out. Prices are moderate and serving sizes average at best. Solid preparation. Good service.

Birthday brunch except the restaurant decided it was not doing brunch this day—even though it’s website had its brunch menu advertised and marketed. No notice was given until after we were checked in and seated that there would be no brunch offerings. Very disappointed with the food that was available and ordered too.

Our server was very attentive, possibly even too much so. I appreciated that she tried to engage with us, but it definitely made us feel more obligated to respond than anything. I love that you can order miniature bottles of La Crema, and the ambiance was so cool. Very much looking forward to this place opening back up so that we can return!
