    I was going to say the filet mignon special was amazing and a must have...and then I had the shrimp and polenta....soooo good, one of the best things I've eaten in awhile. Skip the mac and cheese

    This place is so much fun! The 90's and 2000's music wasn't really doing it for me though.

    Truffle fries at happy hour are pretty good. Sadly neither the lentils nor the green beans are vegetarian, and the black bean hummus is disappointing.

    There is a great amazon local deal going on right now for this place. We loved every dish we tried. Especially like how vegan & gluten free friendly they are

    Bottle service is worth it. No tanks, cut off tees, or sandals - damn shame. Fun playlist on weekends.

    Pretty good brunch, but found the dark lounge decor & cramped booths not so appealing on a sunny Sunday morning. French toast benedict was delish, but may require an extra 2 hrs at gym afterwards!

    The "Pearfect Martini" (Grey Goose Pear , Orchard Pear Cordial, St. Germaine, Champagne) was beautifully crafted. Very light + delicious. Highly recommend. Great DJs, too. Loved the old skool hip-hop.
