The service was good. The food was not. We had hoped our first visit was an off night, but unfortunately the food was even more underwhelming our second (and last) time.

The bacon cheddar tots are very very good. We should have just got a couple more orders of those and called it good. The burgers ordered medium well came out charred to being almost inedible. The buns were stale. I had a side of coleslaw which came out lukewarm, didn't seem right but either way it wasn't very good.

The place was not crowded meaning it was quiet. However I can see if it gets busier I can see it getting way louder. The food was good however, the $4 upcharge for their 8 tots is a little extravagant and I will not be doing that again. The server was great, patient and very accommodating. Would go back on her service alone. Have fun.

Great ambiance. Love the place. Too bad food isn’t so great. Truffle fries- delish. Brussels sprouts not so great. I love Brussels sprouts but this was disappointing. Ordered steak sandwich, was sweet. Steak was subpar. Couldn’t even finish it all. Daughter got waffles., fine. Son got impossible breakfast sandwich., and husband got sandwich.. we were all starving and all didn’t finish our food. Our waitress was friendly and wonderful.

Food and service were great! The only glitch was we did make a reservation in the bar area and they no longer had a table for us when we arrive….otherwise awesome time!

Very disappointed that the Buffalo Wings and Beef Sliders were no longer on the menu. The Bulgolgi Beef Empenadas (sp?) had too much dough and not enough filling. The other items selected were delicious! Service was great; chairs not so much!

We'll be back!

Pizza was burned on the bottom and soggy in the middle. Ordered a grilled cheese instead and it was uncooked on one side and burned on the other. I had to ask for my waiter to get drink refills- he never came back to the table after the food runners bought our food. The ranch or the oil in the truffle fries was bad because we both got sick an over after we ate and those were the only things we ate in common. I still tipped 25% because I’m a nice person. This place is LOUD- sit outside if you want to be able to hear the person you are with.

Not a good experience. Food was subpar and service was lacking. Table was wobbly and there was food on the floor by our table. This was my second visit and I should of learned my lesson the first time. Yes the pun was intended.

Very disappointing. Having to read menu on phone was unwieldy. Choice of entree was not available. Choice of beer was not available. Incorrect food was brought to us twice. Had to ask for silverware and napkins after we received food. The food itself was OK, not anything great. We were not charged for dessert, which was very nice, as we did not complain nor ask for compensation. That’s what earned the 3 stars rather than 2. Not sure I would go back,

All of our food tasted good, but it was cold and it took far too long for our drinks to be served. We had to go to the bar to get our drinks - a pint of beer and a glass of Malbec.

Overal a solid place to go for decent service and good food at a decent price. Was disappointed that they were both out of my dining companions first choice, the lemon chicken entree and for me they were out of the steak. Server was apologetic but nonetheless would have been better to have known that up front. The lemon bar dessert is fantastic.

Julian, our server, was one of the most exemplary servers I have had in the 15 years I have lived here. We dine at places like Picasso and La Cirque and his level of service is better than our “acclaimed” fine dining establishments. Thank you Julian!
