A perfect place for lunch. Not nearly as noisy and crowded for lunch as at dinner. Good salads and burgers. Nice presentation of plating.

What a great bar/restaurant!! We had a blast and really enjoyed the dinner. Great staff and service, the servers made the night even better with their attitude and attentiveness to everyone in the party. Definitely go back

When you walk in you'll see impressive modern upscale decor with a super vibrant bar scene on weekends. The food however will immediately let you know what the management focuses on (it's not the food). The calaramari is really poor. The pizza is worse than I can make at home (and I'm a horrible cook). Overall it's really soso. However I admit it all looks ok. Disappointing.

We had the BEST waiter ever at 220 Merrill. John is excellent and made our whole evening perfect. The food was good, portions very ample. We sat in the bar area, and I have to say it was a little loud with the music. There is a vibrant vibe from the place and we put it at one of our most memorable dinners in a long time!

We went to celebrate our anniversary. Although it is more upscale, the dress code was more casual than we expected. We were probably over-dressed. That being said, we were seated in the bar dining area. The music was way too loud. I mentioned it to our waitress and she told us there was a quieter main dining room. So we moved there. What a difference. Why they didn't originally seat us there (or ask us) when we were all dressed up, is beyond me. Besides that, the service was excellent and the food was absolutely AMAZING. The bone-in rib-eye had a great seasoning on it. The scallops were perfectly seared. The oysters Rockefeller were oh-so-good. We even had great help picking out the perfect bottle of wine to celebrate.
