We walked in here (without reservations) on the advice of our bartender at the Old Sugar Distillery, about two blocks away. It was a Friday night, but early enough that we didn’t have to wait for a seat. Service was very friendly and prompt. Loved...More

Not super into the seating vibe of the place - tables close together. However, the food is worth the semi-lame feel - pork was great, also had a ribeye there, very very good. Not cheap, but a gem on Willy Street.

Modern and classy stylish bistro-style restaurant with an offbeat rotating menu that is unique to the point you can tell the chef puts a great deal of thought into carving out each item. Small option, small bite focused menu that encourages family style dining and...More

Everything was unique and full of flavor. Our server was sweet and delightful, and we enjoyed sharing everything. The scallops were our favorite, but it was hard to choose because it was all so delicious. We enjoyed the big beer list as well as the...More

Horrible - the food was quite good; until I discovered a big curly hair in my risotto. I asked to speak to the manager, who agreed that yes, there was a large hair in my risotto. However, instead of apologizing, he told me that "these...More
