    Great food, lively vibe, friendly service. Esp good are the burgers, salmon and salads. However, it’s very loud. It’s in a basement, the sound bounces off surfaces, the music is loud, and the tables are large- you may have to yell to the people sitting across from you. One of the reasons we came was for the excellent burger - but they were out. Of burgers. We tried two desserts this time and do NOT recommend. The “smoked chocolate bread pudding” tasted like someone’s week old frying pan scrapings (actually, more like someone got too heavy handed with the liquid smoke). I had just said “it smells like bacon, someone must have gotten the pork belly nearby” but it was the dessert. I couldn’t get a forkful down. The Lime pavlova was a slab of merengue with a lime basil goo on top and strawberries. I ate a bunch of it but the other people with me thought it tasted like chalk and was bad. Also, skip the coffee.

    Such a great place, lots of ambience and really delicious food. I love all the photos and vintage art on the walls, beautiful lighting and tile floors, feels very old world. Very friendly and attentive service. Appetizers and meals were excellent, dessert not as strong but still tasty.
