EAT Went here after work for dinner with the family. I have 2 small kids. It was entirely too loud in there and we couldn’t hear each other or the waitress. The food is fine. But my kids were overwhelmed by the noise.

They don't do reservations. This place is too busy all the time. Unless you talk to a manager and go before or after a select time.
