We weren't sure we could get up to the patio because of all the steps, but we found out there's a secret entrance from the sidewalk. Food was good, it was a gorgeous night, so it was awesome to be outside.

Thoroughly enjoyed the courtyard at night. Good wine and beer list. The charcuterie board was fantastic with a huge variety of snacks. Service was kind, but pretty slow. Don't go if you are in a hurry.
