Drink and good selection was great, and enjoyed the different selections available. However the atmosphere was very cold and uncomfortable, which forced us to leave. We have talked about going here for some time and it was disappointing not to enjoy ourselves, but we will be back to try again.

While I cannot disagree with anything ADavisS said in her/His(?) review, we had a wonderful waitress who took the time to explain everything to us and we had a simply wonderful meal.

Menu has some basic items but descriptions of food misleading - had to ask people who had been there before what different things were - and yes, it was written in English. Food itself was fine but limited choices. All around it was odd though some locals seem to love it.

Excellent meal and cocktails. If you're looking for quality ingredients and delicious food and cocktails, this is your place. I'm pretty sure there isn't another place like this in the area, and we're staying at a very nice hotel. Great service too.

I loved the drinks and food at this place. You can get a bunch of small plates that will never be like anything you've ever had anywhere. I thought it was reasonable and fun but get there early. No reservations and very popular.

Unique cocktails with lots of interesting ingredients. For dinner I had a foie Gras stuffed duck breast that was great and my wife had a patty melt. When we asked who made the bread for the patty melt the bartender said they make it in house....Boom!

Food was not all that tasty. Best was the least expensive item. Great service though. We had no alcohol with our meal.

We tried a little bit of everything. Surprising number of vegetarian friendly choices. We really enjoyed the drink choices. Staff was super friendly and helpful.
