We each had the lava stone meal with different skewers. The food was fine, but nothing outstanding. The skewers were also very skimpy, so we left hungry.
We had a lovely table on the patio, and watched the staff flirting with each other from the bar for most of our time there.
This restaurant has potential, as evident in their fun lava stone idea, but the chef needs to step it up.

After 45 minutes of the worst customer service we have ever experienced we walked out.

Overall everything was really good. But unfortunately 2 out of 6 people had stomach issues right after dinner. Our fun night out ended up ending early due to this.

Nice place but there was so little of interest to me on the menu that we decided to go somewhere else.

The patio was nice and the service was ok, but the food was the worst I've had in a while. My mom and I ordered lobster salad, which was 3 pieces of lettuce with an avocado, drowned in a ton of mayonnaise type sauce with some celery and barely any lobster. We also ordered nachos and paid extra for guacamole, which was brown. Very disappointing.

I was happy to find a salad bowl with grilled chicken. There was a draft through the restaurant as the windows were open and the breeze picked up.

I also wondered if female servers were encouraged to wear short tight black skirts. I hope this is not a job requirement.

The noise was too loud for me.

The food was good as was the service.

Good options for vegans as long as you specify that you're vegan. For some reason, the cauliflower wings are cooked in buttermilk (ew?), so you'll have to keep going to Pure Kitchen for those. The Beyond Beef alternatives are good if you like meat replacements. My quinoa was a bit undercooked but otherwise the bowl is good. Check it out!
