    An hour wait for food in a practically empty restaurant. Light on the apology once food did arrive, which was decent, but definitely not worth the wait.

    Insanely over priced food. May come back to try their lobster mac n' cheese...too bad it's only on the menu as an appetizer.

    This place is utterly understaffed: there's only one person serving the entire restaurant of 25 people. The food also seems to be leftover & reheated. Will not return.

    The grilled octopus app is so yummy. Paired with the arugula salad (goat cheese and orange segments) it makes a great dinner! Jalapeño corn fritters are a nice snack too... Mmmm

    The fried chicken is good, but what really makes the dish is the green beans and mashed potatoes. Don't see that kind of effort on sides very often. Loved the environment too! Will def be back

    The cool atmosphere of this place will definitely make your brunch more interesting. Make sure you bring cash though, because they don't accept cards.
