    Great place for a drink. Or dinner. Or just a snack between bars. The outside seating on the corner is perfect for watching the boys go by

    Filet was good but not $32 good... You get what you pay for with the drinks- totally worth it!

    Great higher end relaxed atmosphere for the gay who wants to see and be seen without the overpacked loud nature of many other gay bars.

    On a slow Sunday night pretty poor service, lax attitude, asked for water after 2 drinks and 2 bartenders...one was occupied the other heard me and just continued doing paperwork ??

    Service is about 3 stars out of 5. Food is 2.5 stars. Drinks & cocktails are 2 stars, they pour too heavily and gives the drink an octane rating. If you're an alcoholic then you will love it here!

    Knock, knock! Who's there? A sophisticated dining establishment with a predominantly (older) gay clientele. I have yet to try the food, but the cheery bar staff can make a mean vodka gimlet.

    Their happy hour is a Gayborhood mainstay. You can also eat lunch here during the week and brunch on Sundays.

    Be sure to order ur drinks as close to the bar as possible; the petit bartenders find it difficult to reach over the bar.

    Mind the short bartenders when ordering drinks, to avoid spillage you may have to reach across the bar further ;-P

    Get here early for a seat at happy hour. In the warmer months, an outdoor table is the place to see and be seen. Great service. Always.
