    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 Kale salad with candied walnuts and dried cherries and Caesar dressing infused with lemon zest and garlic, so good. Having Maria as your server, the BEST!!!

    Brunch? Get an order of the pancakes. I don't really like pancakes but these slices of heaven are not your average pancakes. I got the banana & choc. So good. You can thank me later. You're welcome!

    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.

    the avocado soup is pretty tangy, but my wife enjoyed it. if you're looking for something smooth and creamy though it probably has too much acid for you.

    So the hostess on Sunday was clueless. We asked if we could sit outside and she said they don't take reservation for outside table. Asked if we could wait and she says no. never going there again.

    Disappointing flavor to hollandaise sauce, and the coffee doesn't taste like they have a proper espresso machine. Other than that the food is pretty solid.
