Great cocktails,great appetizers, so-so stuck up servers, great entre. I'd go back for sure. The crowd is a little pretentious. Don't go there in jeans.

Warning- this is not a place to go if you are trying to eat healthy. I ordered the Caesar salad. I asked to not put on the pig ears and some other pig concoction. Although it was good, it was very salty. The chicken dish...More

I would say no since you have to go through the full restaurant to get there but call them to make sure.

I would agree with the comments about time of day. Evenings tend to be loud and crowded. May not be right for all kids.
