The place is young and loud. They have a new menu--smaller dishes, but interesting enough. the food is pretty good, although the portions are fairly small. It's LOUD in there, but the service is pleasant, and the entire experience was good. The seared tuna is good, as are the ribs--but the latter are a little sweet. The pinot noir we had wasn't very good at all--palatable, but that's about it.

Everything I have tried so far is delicious! Advice especially in the winter is to try to sit as far away from the windows as possible. Very cold near the window (even though they had baseboard heaters all along the windows blowing hot air/heat.

My 1st time here and brought my girlfriend and we had a very good experience. William the bartender was great. Very knowledgeable regarding menu and drinks. He had a fun energy thing going for him. Skirt steak burger was awesome. Will be back.

With stately décor juxtaposed against splashy murals and funky music, Pounds & Ounces is a little bit traditional and a little bit unorthodox. Appropriately enough, the same can also be said for their new menu, which emphasizes the social aspect of a meal: shareable small plates including tuna tartare tacos, spicy coriander carrots, and lobster corndogs replicate the plate-passing intimacy of a homey dinner party. Elsewhere on the menu, new burgers abound, with inventive offerings such as the lamb and feta burger or the Atlantic salmon burger redefining outdated notions of what belongs between the buns. No matter their order, diners can expect something delicious; inside Pounds & Ounces' kitchen, the chefs draws on local, seasonal ingredients to maximize their dishes' flavors.

The Pounds & Ounces aesthetic matches the eclectic approach perfectly. Mixed with refined hardwoods and old stone are colorful flourishes, such as orbs of flowers and a phantasmagoric mural. The floor's vintage tiling is juxtaposed with the dining room's centerpiece: a communal 30-person table constructed from gleaming metal and lustrous alabaster. On Fridays and Saturdays, popular local DJs drop by to spin dinner-friendly sets before later shows around the city.
