Upstairs is even worse, limited menu, out of most of what they offer. Rude management and waitstaff not well trained. Forgot food, uncharges for small items. Attitude and not great food, won't be back

The Kitchen has some of the best food on Pearl Street, coupled with great service and a beautiful interior. They easily accommodated a large group without reservations and managed multiple rounds of ordering (drinks and food). The quality of both was exceptional.
