    You don't have to always order off the cocktail menu. The bartenders are great at being creative.

    Excellent service -- even when it's busy. Ask for any whiskey cocktail and they will wow you. Perfect place for a drink with a date before or after a movie or performance close by.

    Overall my experience was awesome and I'd definitely come back and try out their larger plates. The bartenders also are the best! They create drinks that will blow your mind.

    The best bar in Seattle (canon is great but it's small and hard to get a table).

    Cocktails are tasty and normally the service is good. However there was a fly on the drink, and our server didn't seem to particularly care. Maybe check your drink before ingesting ;)
