“Nice atmosphere but not food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

We tried this restaurant for the first time on a Saturday night. Made "early" reservation at 6:30 due to theater tickets. There was only one other couple dining when we arrived. Server was very nice and tried to be helpful but needed some training (not sure if wine comes by the bottle or just by the glass??). Menu looked interesting and prices were reasonable but just OK. Given the limited amount of people in the restaurant, service was slow - had to assume it was the kitchen as our server was not busy with the other 5 couples dining when we left. Seems to be a good local find and may try again when in the area but..................

“Not bad but disappointingly just your garden variety urban restaurtant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2011

Very nice atmosphere.

Food was generally well prepared though small portions for the price.

Wine-by-the -glass seemed very overpriced at $8-9/glass for $12 retail per bottle wine.

Dessert choices seemed like standard restaurant foodservice purchases

Service was lackluster...not insulting but not inviting either
