    We had a reservation at 8:15 before a comedy show down the street at 10pm. We arrived at 8:10. They sat us at 8:30. Our beers arrived at the table at 9. Appetizer at 9:15. Entree at 9:40. Didn’t cash us out until 10:05pm. We missed our show. They did comp our beer because of the long wait, and that’s why it’s 2 stars instead of 1. In conclusion, they were inattentive and slow, food was just okay and small portions, and they caused us to miss the thing we left the house for. Overall lame and disappointing.

    A lot of potential but lacking some minor execution. Good beer list. Good cocktails. Diverse menu and great flavors. However, this was our 2nd visit and there’s regularly been fixable issues with the food. Food came out cold. Scoop of guacamole on the nachos was practically frozen inside. Salad over-dressed. Little oversights that, if fixed, would make this place excellent.

    Just very ok. Ordered 3 different drinks and they were all terrible. Fried chicken was good. There was a hair in my husbands food. Brussel sprouts were the highlight of the evening.

    We had a reservation and were seated 20 minutes after the reservation. There was a huge crowd standing at the door, all who also had reservations. Service was slow due to the large crowd. Food was good. Servers were friendly. Will not return during high traffic times given there seems to be no limits placed on reservations.

    The drinks are AMAZING but the food is sub par and expensive. My husband and I love coming here to watch games and have drinks with friends but have decided we will eat before we go. Overall, the ambience and environment is great. The drinks are amazing but the food isn’t worth it. We have given the food a try on three different occasions and overall made the decision that it wasn’t worth the price and was just meg. Everything else is good though.

    Half the table got their food 10 minutes before the other half. Waitress did a great job with water service, but split the checks horrendously, after waiting 15 minutes for getting them after asking for the check. One couple paid $50 while another paid $80 while another paid $105.

    As a vegan I struggle to find great food on date night, and their curry dish was outstanding! And, labeled as vegan is an extra special touch that I appreciate.

    Great food, fun spot! Creative, delicious food was enjoyed by all. Very good service. Our family of b5 loved the kale salad, butternut squash ravioli, cob salad, turkey pastrami sandwich and chicken katsu sandwich. Dessert was also delicious... Banana thing stole the show with delicious flavor and texture .

    First time coming out to culinary dropout, no fault of theirs but parking was almost impossible to find, reservations were quick to seat us, beautiful place to kick it with friends. As far as service it was OUTSTANDING our waitress was one of the nicest I’ve met, don’t recall her name but little blonde girl super cool!! The manager was also very professional and very attentive to our issues, a little busy so we waited a little longer to get our orders taken… when it comes to the food it was pretty BAD, wings were not very delectable, soup was super salty enough to kill COVID, steak frites was better but not good. Overall it’s perfect for drinks and friends lots of laughs, not for date night!!!
