    Could not enjoy the roof top tnt. Try the scallops, buttermilk shrimp pancakes (pictured) and the mussels. Oh, the pork belly is also good. Wine by the glass is limited however, great cocktail list.

    The Roja Viejo is ok but not my favorite. It's very briny from the green olives mixed in when cooking; so it also tastes a bit gamey as well. However the plantain chips on top are the best I ever had.

    Great food (black bean nachos, hummus platter, beef tips, shrimp etc...) and great scene. If your a food enthusiast you'll truly enjoy! Late night menu is great too!

    The rooftop deck is amazing & their drink specials are really unique. Try the panko crusted goat cheese plate.

    Cluster of tables along the brick sidewalk in front make a hip hangout spot for sampling the kitchen's small-plate creations. The Short List: one of our top 5 best restaurants for al fresco dining. Read more

    Great food and rooftop bar. Be warned that the food comes out of the kitchen at random intervals, not as a group, for whatever strange lazy kitchen reason.

    I recommend their ropa vieja. and drinks...half off bottles of wine on Mondays. Danny is a beast at the bar - ask for a Negroni!

    Scallops are great. Fries are great. Brussel sprouts are great. Nachos are not my favorite and nacho favorite either.

    Awesome drinks and good appetizers. The rooftop isn't as great as most rooftops but the vibe is more chill than most.

    Aparently private party @ bar. I have suggestions for mgmt on how to make customers feel wwlce in that situation. bartenders need to learn to mix a drink. I would order it up if that's what I wanted

    Love the roof top bar. Good happy hour specials. Iron chairs in dining room are the worst. They really need to invest in cushions.

    Fun, trendy, a bit expensive but well worth it. Try the shrimp and grits!!!! (avoid the crab cakes).

    Great views of the city on the rooftop bar. When the weather is not too hot, you can't beat this spot.

    The owner, Leslie, doesn't know how to treat regulars and therefore there are about 12 of us that will never go back. You can kiss my avg of $400/mo goodbye, but I guess that wasn't enough for her!
