    Everything is delicious, go with friends so you can try everything. The favors are bold & everything is homemade & fresh. Restaurant has a great vibe. The cocktails are also amazing

    Great personalized service! Mentioned that I was vegan in the reservation and everything was tasty! Loved the eggplant dish the best. Everything was off menu, so no guarantees on the same experience

    The dim sum carts were fun, and everything we ate was amazing. I have to say though the best course was the kale and carrot cake for dessert. Mind blowing good. Cocktails were also excellent.

    They'll try to turn your table incredibly fast so you need to set your own pace. Food is a B/B+. Some dishes are amazing, others are a waste.

    Farm to table local & all are small plates. The $8 for a 1/4 of bread (no butter) about four small slices, exemplifies the pretentious but sometimes hilarious service. Think Portlandia.

    Food was good but definitely pricey. If you know what you're getting into, I'm sure it's great!

    The lamb tartare and burrata toast are killer. The desserts not so much.

    The carts with tapas and ordering cards that emulate dim sum. Priceless.

    They mill their own grains in house to make their pastas/breads/pastries!

    Love the concept, setting and vibe but most of the food turned out bland. For the price there are better places in downtown
