The menu and drinks list is interesting, and the restaurant itself is very nice inside. Nevertheless, it felt like it was trying too hard to stand out among the other bars and restaurants downtown.

The food here was okay, but uninspired. The service was very poor and haphazard. We were seated and it might have been 10-15 minutes before a waiter even came to our table. In fairness, we were there on a crowded theater night. On a calmer...More
