Went with Thai options and shared with the table. Best option is to try and share. Liked everything and desserts looked great but did not try them.

This was my first time at this restaurant. The server was good and knew the menu. Sorry, I forgot his name. His food suggestions were very good, which one was the roasted Brussel spouts. Awesome!!! I do recommend for any one.

Stepping into the door you know that you are going to be experiencing a unique dining experience. The two floor open restaurant feels retro 70’s but in a cool way. The server was very attentive and explaining the small plates and some of the best...More

I get it; it's a cool trendy place. The hanging seats upstairs were very cool for me, a 20-something on a business trip. My mother accompanying me would disagree. The double mirror in the restrooms was very offputting. Food okay, but I believe there are...More
