    The mussels with white wine broth are delicious. We also enjoyed the asparagus salad, the pomme frites and bread.

    Food was flavored well. The octopus was fantastic! Got the rockfish which was topped with some sort of salami- this was interesting, kinda shocking but the rice was Cajun style so the flavors blended

    Waited 45 minutes at the bar for mediocre food because the kitchen (aka our server) "lost our ticket." Save your money and go somewhere else!

    Although I expected a larger selection of mussels on the menu, the food is very good. Great beer selection as well.

    Pretty good. The mussels 1/2 serving is more than enough for 2 people to share. Cucumber cocktail was tasty.

    If it's a Robert Wiedmaier restaurant you're always in for complex, unique, and original and excellent cuisine. Best calamari you'll get anywhere (not fried) and superior beer options.

    The fried brisk spirits and bacon, surprisingly delish. Definitely hit up the pork belly if you're a pig lover.

    Our server Rohit was legit. Spent a ton of time talking with us, wasn't in a hurry, and was super invested in us as customers.

    Service was spotty but the food (lamb meatball appetizer and mussels in white wine and garlic) were very good. Fries are good, not great. The venue itself is very cool.
