This was the first time at this restaurant. Mario was our server. He was very helpful making recommendations about drinks and food. My husband had the salmon and I had one of their specials - fish. Everything was very good. We will be back.

I visited for dinner with a friend recently, early on a weekday, and though we'd have preferred outdoor seating, the cold wind & rain prevented that. Thankfully we had most of the dining room to ourselves (great for us, not great for the restaurant, so I hope they can hang in there!). The service was friendly, informative and attentive without being overbearing. The ambiance was stylish and comfortable, bourbon & rye cocktails were excellent and not overly syrupy, designed for candy-palates. I had a special menu item for the evening of a half-rack of lamb, and it was SPECTACULAR! Perfect medium-rare, just the right char at the edges and pink & juicy inside. I gnawed the four tiny bones clean! Moroccan-spice sauteed baby carrots were the perfect accompaniment, and all served on a pillow of creamy polenta surrounded by a small moat of a savory brown sauce. My vegetarian companion had the grilled cheese (sans bacon onion jam) with mushroom soup, and it looked quite hearty and was enjoyed thoroughly as well. I would absolutely return here for another meal or ten!

Food was delicious and our waitress Taylor did a fantastic job. We were dining outside which was so enjoyable in October (they had heaters ready if you needed them). We’d go back for sure and try something different to eat. We enjoyed the happy hour food specials so much we didn’t try a meal. I do not recommend the bucket drinks but the fresh drinks like my martini with pama and sugar on the rim was great! I hope they figure a way to stay open outside for many more months- who wants to eat outside anymore!

Mad Chef: what a welcoming restaurant, with a delicious menu. We elected to sit in the bar where, like the dining room, every other table is blocked off for social distancing. Daniel, the bartender, welcomed us I especially love “Boring Caesar Salad,” which is what it is compared to their other salads. I had shrimp on the house, as was dessert. Needless to say, big, well-deserved tip. Go. Just go.

Ethan, our server was amazing. He made some great food recommendations and our meal was fantastic. We had the tuna taquitos, chili cauliflower, and the shrimp and grits. The tuna was our favorite, it was crispy and spicy and so flavorful. The chili cauliflower was sweet and spicy. The shrimp and grits were perfectly cooked but I would have preferred more spice just as a personal preference. Ethan recommended the churro dessert and it was the perfect ending to our meal. The taste and texture were just perfectly balanced.
