We ate here before attending a show at the playhouse. Service was very slow, food was good, but overpriced. Decent selection of beer, but not mixed drinks. Might be good for drinks, but not dinner before a show...Being a local, I probably would not come...More

First I will begin with the excellent tapas. We had pork tamales, octopus and short ribs... all were outstanding! We also had flights of Japanese bourbon. It's a great place to try different bourbons to learn what you like before you buy a whole bottle....More
