Made a reservation for 2 at 7:00 on a Saturday night. Arrived a few minutes late and waited over a half hour (!) to be seated. Drinks and apps were served quickly. We had teriyaki beef which was delicious! Kale salad was pretty good. Entree however was terrible. I had the parmesan and herb encrusted chicken. The crust was badly... More

This is a fun place. I have been here with my kids and with just my wife. Great for both situations. The food is always great and they have some fun and different options on the menu without being completely out there. The atmosphere is also nice, good music and a great staff. Worth a visit.

Came here with two friends for lunch and all loved it. I have been here before and always enjoy whatever I order. Today I had the Zen dish and it was wonderful - full of veggies and brown rice and a light curry flavor . It is served warm and comes with a yummy kale salad and hot corn bread,... More

This restaurant is fantastic. I'm picky about ordering salads at restaurants because most of them come with wilted lettuce and loads of dressing, but their salads here were quite good and well-portioned. Their other dishes are tasty as well, and their service is fast and friendly. The décor is cute!

Visited December 2016. Nine in our group, late evening, but kitchen accommodated, and the single and overworked server (Colleen??) was excellent under pressure. From the comments, everyone enjoyed their food. Nice beer collection (not your standard Bud Light lineup). Specific to my dinner: Had the Health Salad, a huge bowl of baby spinach with onion, feta and some small nutty... More

This is only our 2nd time here. We are from NJ and work in NYC - and visit family near here. We loved our first time here and love being here again. We are eating the chicken tenders with an extraordinary sauce and a salad along with the clam chowder. These dishes are exceptional. You'll also love the beer selection.... More

Some friends and I stopped here for dinner before an event at Mechanics Hall. Our waitress was very friendly, and cheerfully answered all of our questions about the menu and the drinks. The food was fantastic! I had the Mushroomtopia. The pan-seared ravioli were paired perfectly and topped with just the right about of vegetables and parmesan. I tried some... More

I wouldn't call this a family location unless during the day...but they are welcoming to all. Small place with great atmosphere. I think of this place as the appetizer to any great evening planned. Dinner before the movie or dancing. Drink with friends before the club. Get the idea?!! staff are great, friendly, and fast. Try their sangria it was... More
