    Aaron and crew are amazing. It always amazes me the level of professionalism the entire staff keeps even when it's so packed you can hardly turn around.

    Don't let the waitress forget to bring you your credit card when she holds it as a deposit for a Moscow Mule. No apology from staff the next day. Pretty poor service.

    Be careful before take a seat! You may stick on the chair because of spilled and uncleaned drinks.

    I love a wine list rich with Washington state selections. Staff is very friendly..that may not mean much based on the fact I live in Chicago..but they remember your name & use it. Fake name=fun.

    The small cheese plate is not worth the money. It had only four small slices of cheese and some fruit. They should call it the fruit plate, really.

    Slowest bartenders ever. On a busy Friday night, one of them was crouched down behind the bar doing her make-up.
