My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and while we thought the food was pretty good for the most part, it was overpriced. The drinks are also WAY overpriced by $2-3 and didn't consist of much more than juice while copious amounts of ice take most of the space. A good moneymaker, no doubt ;)

Practical feedback: the chairs are extremely uncomfortable, but they may feel normal if you like to eat like a Plebe. Also, it gets very loud once it fills up.

Server was great. Very friendly and accommodating.

Went to celebrate our anniversary last night and enjoyed ourselves. Unique cocktails (I got the lime gimlet) and small plates for sharing. The truffle mac, asparagus, rabbit and scallops were delicious and presented nicely. If you want an intimate dining experience, this isn't the place for you. Even though my boyfriend mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary when he made the reservation and asked for a nice table, we were escorted past the nicely cushioned booths and were sat at a tiny table in the corner next to a loud, large group of 10. Our bill was about $80 for 3 adult beverages and 4 small plates. Cute place for a date night otherwise, with a modern rustic decor.

Very nice two level atmosphere. Definitely more of a younger generation. For people who want expensive freshly handmade drinks. While my cocktail tasted good it still came with very little alcohol as in most places. I had the asparagus plate, everything was good except for the horseradish sauce which ruined it for me. I also had the beef plate which was good. However, I left unsatisfied and $50 in the hole.

Once a weekly customer when I lived in area. On a visit took a friend there and it was fantastic! The bartenders are chemists and small plates ALL exceptional! Great Location and a true five star experience of great value.

This is a good restaurant, but if you happen to be seated with a loud person or party, you're gonna suffer, sorry. We were on the first floor, tables were not all taken, but a person with a loud grating voice was at the table next to us, and it was painful. On the good side, the vodka gimlet was delicious - with or without the foam on top. We liked most of the dishes we had - the eggplant caponata, the gnocchi, shrimp, ribs. The beet salad was just ok, and the grilled lobster was really hard to get out of the shell despite being cut in half and cracked. The service was good and it was a good meal. It would be good if they would answer their phone as we tried to call when we feared we might run late. Not getting a return call, we rushed to get there when it was obvious once there that pushing the time back a half hour would have been no problem for them.
