I thought the food was excellent, however, won't return for the service. We were seated at small table in the middle of the service pass between the kitchen and the dining room. It was also next to the smoky pizza oven next to a trash can. After sitiing there for 10 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order so we can ask to move. we got attitude. the watress siad we were in the middle of the action - so why move. i told her i was very uncomfortable in this seat and agian requested we be moved. There were plenty of tables open and Was told that the only thing they could do was seat us outside. I pointed to 3 tables and asked that one of them be cleaned for us to sit there. After another nasty look, waited another 10 minutes for it to be cleaned before we could move and had to get our own silver ware from the table we just vacated. It took 30 minutes before we could put in our order. If it was for the groupon we would have walked out. The food was very good but lukewarm when it arrived. The new waitress was very nice, but incompetent. We got only one entree and went ahead and shared it. she came back and asked if we wanted dessert. She forgot to place the 2nd entree and had to reorder waiting another 10 minutes after we finished the other entree. Then our bill had the previous table's bill on ours as well. All in all a bad experience. The great food does not make up for the terrible service. They need to fix it if the plan to stay in business. Also the did not honor the terms of the groupon with 1 app, 2 entrees, and 1 dessert. The gave us a credit of $60 to use toward the bill.

What a wonderful meal. The restaurant is lovely, the service was charming, the food was inventive, beautiful but most of all, delicious. I can't wait to go back and try the other dishes.

Server 'Jay' did a great job explaining the menu thoroughly. He knew so much info that I thought he was a chef as well!

The service was horrible! We sat for almost twenty minutes before anyone took our order, and the waitress was condescending and in a rush. She flew past us several times without checking on us at all. When our food finally came it was lukewarm at best, and one of the dishes was incorrect. I told the server who brough our food that it was the incorrect dish and was told, "well it's on your ticket so talk to your waitress." Which we did when she finally came back by. She told us that it would be free then, but made no attempt to bring out the correct dish. We chose not ask for it, since it had taken so long to get everything else. We sat for over 30 minutes after finishing our entrees before our server finally stopped at our table long enough to ask if we were done and we were able to order dessert, which took another 25 minutes to come out. The dessert was the best part of the meal by far when it finally arrived. When our bill came the incorrect dish had not been comped as promised and we had to attempt to flag down our server again as she flew around the restaurant. In all, we were relieved when we finally escaped... And we were hungry. It was an extremely disappointing and horrible experience, and unfortunately I cannot recommend this bistro to anyone. The water server was the only person who regularly checked on us. Kudos to him, at least we had water!

Everything we had was wonderful; portion sizes were smaller-than-average for this type of eestablishment. I don't have a problem with "Tapas-style" menus, it just would have been nice to know going in. Very friendly wait staff, but a little slow.
