    Impeccable service and perfect presentation. Loved the duck and the treats the brought us. The lemon pana cota reminded me of Brazilian "Manjar" was more beautiful than tasty. Great potential.

    Wow! The lamb cavatelli was excellent. The cocktails were flavorful and unique. And the service was OUTSTANDING! It was our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel special.

    Great cocktails, Gallagher 2.0 for example. Good house bread, tacos and burrata are good, duck very well done. Amuse bouche well chosen and tasty, liked th desert soda drink in mini bottle

    Seven different staff members wished us a happy anniversary. Brought a smile to our faces. Complementary dessert/champagne. Gave us bag with special menus/candle/small bottle of champagne. AMAZING!

    The Diver scallops and the cheese plate are to die for. Loved the atmosphere and modern setup of the restaurant too
  • The Wall Street Journal
    The menu hits all points—with, of course, a burger for $18—and includes pastas, salads and a steak. A three-course prix fixe runs $30. Ricotta gnudi with chorizo was tasty, as was a beet salad. Read more

    The prix fixed is really good and it's worth it. Idk if they change it throughout the season, but what I got was fantastic, great portions and better taste.

    Great service! Free dessert bc the waiter wanted us to have something sweet before leaving. Don't eat too much of the amazing homemade bread drizzled with duck fat or you'll be too full for entree

    Seared diver scallop, duck breast, pulled pork tacos topped off with affogato. Favorite was the scallop!

    Black pepper tagliatelle was unbelievably good. Affogato was likewise delicious. Prices, considering fare, were reasonable. Side note: best house bread ever.

    My go to for business lunches. Top notch service. My company does all our client dinners here. Their personalization, attention to detail is great. What really is exceptional is the incredible food.

    For an unusual dessert, try Chocolate Box ($14). It is a sizable rectangular chocolate "box", complete with a removable lid! Inside are more chocolate pieces.

    The scallops offer a wonderful contrast: soft and sweet raisins, crunchy cashews and spicy curry.

    Must get scallops, ramen, house made pasta, tacos and dinner Prix Fixe/ Chefs Tasting Menu. They have a secret 9 course Chef's Tasting Menu. Wine list is outstanding!

    You'll be sure to leave stuff when you ask for the kitchen sink's worth of root vegetable, veal cheeks, tenderloin, brisket, and chive dumplings. Read more

    Seared scallops with tri-color cauliflower were delicious. The seating was odd though! The chairs do not work for a big crowd!

    EXCELLENT! Highly recommend the Chefs tasting for $75 - 5 generous portions with a ton of flavor - did not leave too full either! Can’t wait to go back!

    Good for a moderately priced business meal. Our meal came with an interesting amuse-bouche-- though not really to my taste, it was a pleasant surprise.

    Rock shrimp risotto is boss. Chocolate fondant takes 25 min, so order it when you're almost done with your entrée.

    It's pretty. And the wine is tasty. But it's overpriced. And no happy hour to boot :(
