    Oysters were super fresh and their burrata with pumpkin was delicious. Also, service was friendly and while slow at times, was actually perfect for a nice, intimate Friday night dinner.

    The food is great, but the table service is AWFUL. If you go, sit at the bar. The full menu is available, and the bar staff is friendlier/more attentive.
