Good theater district restaurant. Loud, but fun! The food was excellent. Service was very good. Knowing we had theater tickets the service was very prompt. Bar service was equally good. A new find!

We really went for drinks and some appetizers. The Happy Hour is an excellent time but this place will fill up. The Mojitos were excellent. We had the appetizer sampler and it was all very good. Nice place for drinks to get your evening started.
