This is our third visit and we really like the food and the atmosphere. It was strangely quiet for a Friday night, but the food and service were excellent.

We had reservations on a Thursday and they let us pick our table. We went upstairs and picked a corner spot! It was perfect. We started with the margarita flight, perfect! I ordered the passion fruit margarita after my flight and that was my favorite flavor. The rest of the cocktail list sounded amazing!

Our food was delicious. The tastes and combos were very adventurous. Our table ended up ordering tons of appetizers. They included; fish tacos, potstickers , shrimp, filet bites, nectar fries, cauliflower, and nectar platter. Dessert didn't disappoint either. We had the pistachio gelato and chocolate orange cake... I'm still drooling.

The staff was amazing, the service was great!

The drinks were amazing! Haven't been back for a while but our bartender made the most delicious margaritas. Didn't get to try the food. Next time!

The margaritas are reason enough to come here (try the spicy guava), but the food is delicious, too! The menu is fresh and innovative. The portobello plank burger is the best in town, and the service is friendly and efficient. This is a local gem that is sure to please everyone's palate. I can't wait to return again!
