    Cool space, awkward service, small portions, high prices. Some really intense flavors but not necessarily in a good way

    Some of the fusion dishes were more strange than genius. Great food, but not quite the experience I expect from a Michelin star restaurant.

    Pricey but good. Not sure if it warrants the 1 Michelin star. But kangaroo carpaccio was awesome. And the 2 rounds of free dessert at the end made it well worth it!

    Pretty great cocktails here. My advice: start with a "bourbon old fashioned" (not on menu, ask for it) and then switch over to their custom version, "The Re-Fashioned".
