Loud. Brash. Tacky. Less than mediocre signature cocktails. Fake flowers everywhere. Center tables being used for storage. God knows they’re trying but there are so many other superior choices in the neighborhood, I don’t think I’ll be back and I don’t imagine they will make it in this tough climate.

Food was adequate. Service was terrible. Ordered glass of wine and it never was bought to table. Had to track waitress down to ask for the wine, 10 minutes later the bartender bought it over because waitress failed to get it from bar. 5 of us ordered dinner, one meal was bought out 15 minutes before the rest. When the owner realized the rest was not going to be ready for a while she took it back to the kitchen to keep it warm! Not heading back so fast and was hoping for a nice, good and new restaurant in the neighborhood!

Danielle was a great sever and was very helpful in our choices for food and drinks. She provided her personal preferences and what was popular. We’ll be back and hope to see her again.

Waited at door too long no greeter no manager.
Finally we saw someone go in back get a server and she came over and sat us - no hello how many oh do you have reservation .
Finally got our menu asked what we want to drink and waited.
Got drinks gave our order - waited
Got appetizers but before we’re done the runner wants to take our plates away to bring dinner - can I finish please - dinner is ready - food came out - gravy was dry on top of one dish - the rest of terrible dishes followed - food was awful. - only one appetizer dish was good - Waist of $200
One server on floor - a runner - and maybe a manager that got off the bar stool when and if she felt like it.
What a disappointment

Got there 10 minutes after reservation and had to wait another 10 minutes. Was asked if we’d mind a booth said sure not realizing it was a booth meant for 2 not 4 it was very tight for a party if 4 with two men and they wouldn’t move us. Took a long time to get menus and utensils. Needed to ask multiple times to turn music down. Food was good and presentation was nice. Didn’t like that they added 4% to credit cards. Won’t rush bacn

We split a bunch of appetizers. We had the mussels, truffle Mac, Wings, and spinach artichoke dip. All of it was incredible. Highly recommend!

We were very pleased with the food and service here. The food was high-quality Italian and was excellent. I believe our server was one of the owners but she was very accommodating friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
