hamburger dry…over expensive….to loud to hold a conversation…disc jockey not needed.lived in this area for 20 years.would never go back unless under new experience. tried to use groupon during winter months..did t happen…sunday brunch in blizzard over packed.so disappointed.beautiful space…nothing else.would not consider to eat there again.too loud and not worth the money…food was bad for both me and my date.Was hoping for a solid place to take guests to…this is not the place.The menu is beyond bad.Had an appetizer that was not worthy of 17.00 dollars…something from the south…a po boy i believe.the waiter dropped the plate but it didn t matter.the size was no bigger than a quarter.A real rip off with dried up food. was hoping for anything good…and got nothing.I go to restaurants to enjoy and take company that i can relax and not worry.this was not one of them…i apologized for the food and obnoxious loud music.A dinner party of over 12..left before ordering.If i didn t have the expired groupon i would have done the same. I live but three blocks away…I will never go back to this establishment.There is nothing I like about it…other than the the space…the food is not worthy for a dog…the help was nice…but it s about the food….and the food was bad…and overpriced.

I was there a little more than a month ago and they just change the menu last week (according to the waiter) the value of the food serve does not meet the prices they are charging. They are trying to be a upscale restaurant but the amount of food for the prices being charge is not of value. Though the food is good. The way they treat groupon is not of value the way it should be. I paid $65 for the groupon for 4 and I still had to pay $110 (including tip). Pricey!!

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.
