Went for lunch graduation weekend. Service was pleasant but extremely slow. Took nearly half an hour to get a bottle of prosecco. Ordered the chopped salad. It was a clump of overdressed brown lettuce with some chopped deli ham, hard boiled egg and blue cheese....More

So they have a new menu and at lunch time, they serve brunch. What that means is that they have 20 breakfast items and 3 sandwiches. And yes, this is during the week as well. So if you want overpriced eggs at noon, this is...More

Apparently a new chef has taken over and this is trying to have more of a fine dining menu now. Great cocktail list (and reasonable prices at $6-$9) but the food was a little hit or miss. Starters and entrees came all at once, which...More

while the food was good, the place was noisy and very expensive for simple dishes like a veggie burger or a hoagie. The three of us agreed we wouldn't bother returning as there are too many better restaurants outside of Collegetown to try.

This is nice place to hang out in college town. Their burger quality is good but a burger cost 13$ which is a bit pricy. It is not only burger place there is other food, coffee and small bar too.

Went with a large group, enjoyed our time. Service was okay, but nothing special. A bit of a challenge when we tried to pay with multiple credit cards (they say they can't split a check with more than 6 credit cards). Food was good, but...More

This is considered to be a high-end restaurant. The food is good, although seemed overpriced to me. The service is not really good and soooo slow. What I liked about it was the interior decoration and the originality of the paintings.

Excellent lunch choice with really creative food and beverage menu, lots of happy students and friendly staff. The food was top notch and I would definitely recommend it. We will be back, there are lots more interesting things on the menu to try.
