    Love the Brussels sprouts with maple vinaigrette and bacon! The mac and cheese is also very yummy and cheesy. Easy to make reservations, great for groups or dates.

    Cocktails are interesting in design, but they don't staff the place with people who can execute.

    Decent restaurant but food was sometimes unimpressive. Pork belly was okay and I've had better bacon wrapped dates before. I did like creme Brule and roasted artichokes.

    Well designed food, not always well executed. Has the "management company" feeling about it, as if it were being operated via remote control from an office somewhere.

    Too much "sandbagging" (preparing food in advance) in the kitchen leaves this place pretty hit or miss. Definitely doesn't live up to its potential.

    My filet mignon was overcooked, really disappointing for the price. On the other hand, their chicken plate was really tasty. Seems hit and miss depending on the time and date you eat.
