    We had high expectations after reading the reviews but left underwhelmed. Please note: we have high standards. Service is amateurish and flavors were hit or miss. Some dishes were overcooked and others undercooked. That said staff could benefit from learning from some finer dining front of house veterans.

    Server was a little confused about menu choices. Fries were room temp. At best, the rapini, and broccoli were tooo spocey. We were 6 people who like spices, but too much. Inedible. The heart of palm, good as usual, the salmon and tuna were also good. Bread was warm and fantastic, but mains were not at good as usual.

    Great place for nice and quiet dinner. Food is always fresh, staff is always super friendly and the atmosphere is amazing. The only downside is the market price for the kosher Ribeye steak. We never know what the charge will be as they don’t know what size of steak they will have.

    The cocktail menu is diverse and delicious. Especially the Perl. Although the menu is small in selections, each choice is certain to delight. All the fish selections are fresh and prepared perfectly. The pastas were also very tasty, especially the mushroom lasagne. Unfortunately we had no room for dessert but the menu was very tempting

    We dined as a group of friends. Excellent service with our waitress Chelsey being an absolute delight and super helpful. We sat outside and it was nice and quiet. Dishes are scrumptious, interesting flavors and overall delicious. Drinks are superb. We all loved Perl and espresso martini. Some of the dishes are pricey because of white truffles, etc. but well worth it. We are definitely coming back.
