    My 2nd time here. It wasn’t as good as the first time, but still very, very good. Service was exceptional my first visit, he offered samples of wine, so I could make proper choices. We had to bring that up to get a sample. Then we ordered the radishes. And I’m still confused about that dish. The server said they were steamed with the butter melted over them, but they came raw and cold and with cold butter. Not sure what the dish is supposed to be. We asked the other server if they were supposed to be steamed and they said “No” as they kept walking past our table. When our server came back, they said they thought they were steamed and the recipes change weekly, so maybe this was a new prep. A restaurant the caliber of Darling should be very clear on the food prep. The rest of our meal was amazing. The croquettes, the anchovy toasts (never take them off menu), the beef carpaccio and the AMAZING pork belly. The only dish that didn’t fit was the radish dish. I’m still confused by it and want to know if there is some chef story or some gourmet thing about raw radishes and butter that we just don’t get. Anyhow, I love the decor and the food was great, the service was okay. Also, there was no pie left when we went to order a birthday dessert, so that was too bad.

    Very loud, music in competition with conversation, no sound dampening decor. Very good food. But, sharing? Had we known, would have planned our choices in advance. Prices in line with other decent restaurants. Hopefully the patio, which looked lovely, would be quieter. Found it tiring shouting across the table, and the ambient noise was tiring. Would recommend to others, with the caveat about the noise.

    Great little wine bar to share a conversation, glass of wine and a small appie with a freind. Loved our waitress, great service, she was knowledgeable about the wine choices.

    Per usual, the brunch was excellent! We got to share it with two of my sisters and my sister in law and brother in law. Everyone thought the food was delicious!

    beautiful, intimate space perfect for a date night or dinner with friends and family! Sharing plates and orange wine are the best.

    Great experience. Our server was fantastic - informed on the menu and gave us a great run down! I very much enjoyed the non-alc sangria they had. Bread was amazing. I was super pleased with this experience and would definitely come back :)

    Menu is quite limited. We had a reservation at 1:30 but were not told that last call for brunch was 1:45 until we got there. There is no lunch menu and the restaurant is closed between brunch and dinner. We didn’t know that either. Felt like there wasn’t a lot to chose from and we were rushed. Nice place and good waitress but I don’t think I would go back.
