    The food was good but service was slow but I understood based on lack of staff. If you have a tight lunch, it wouldn’t be the place to go.

    I ordered the ribeye I asked for a medium rare it was well done. It was one so I didn't have time for them to remake it especially since the food to go a long time for it to make. It was not busy at all we were practically the only people there.

    Went during a weekday to get their lunchtime prix fixe, advertised on their website noted in the picture as $24.95 for app, entree and dessert. Waiter says it’s $30, and points out the limited selection of apps and entrees on the much larger menu that apply. After we eat our apps and entrees, our waiter offers to bring coffee. When asked about getting dessert, he tells us that is not part of the prix fixe, although the website clearly shows it is. We paid our tab that reflects $6 app and $24 entree = $30 total pp (leaving a sizable tip), and left disappointed. This is wrongful advertising, and we won’t be back.

    The Christmas brunch was bad. Horrible set cocktails you had to order, although the bartenders were very nice! Waitress was rude, food was limited and not very good. This isn’t their normal menu, but this experience wasn’t good.

    I celebrated my birthday here. The food was delicious and we especially loved the complimentary appetizer with the hummus and olives. The cocktails were delicious and the bartender even gave us complimentary birthday shots. I’d definitely recommend and we will be back. Great location and the decor was amazing. It was a great way to kick off my birthday.

    I want to start off by saying the decor was amazing and into the holiday spirit. The host was also very kind and welcoming which I enjoyed as it was my first dining here. I they were having their holiday brunch so the menu was very limited. Our waiter was nice and patient, and it seemed that everyone was a team player. However, there was a young lady who came to our table at first and was very kind asking if we wanted another drink. The second time around she came saying it was last call, but I went for bottomless which is 90 minutes and we were only there for 30 minutes. She rushed us to order another drink and had a very bad attitude since then. I told my waiter who said it was meant for another table, and the young lady never came back to let us know or apologize. She actually had a bad attitude and never came back to our table. They should be a little more organized knowing when a table sat down.

    This is honestly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while. I went with my best friend for our birthdays and they did not disappoint. When we arrived they had a business event on the other side of the restaurant, which slowed down the food wait. But even though we had to wait, the staff was very courteous and made us drinks & pita on the house. The food didn’t disappoint and looked even better than the pictures online. I got a pesto risotto with mushrooms and asparagus. As a vegetarian it’s not easy to find a good entree but it was the best risotto I’ve had in my life. Towards the end of our experience we got birthday dessert on the house and they sang to us! Overall, this was an excellent experience and I would recommend it 100%!

    We were able to get in for a reservation for 6 which was great. They had a loud party in part of the restaurant that clearly they should have closed for because the dj took over all of the speakers, it was so loud we couldn’t talk at our table. It was so loud we received the “it’s too loud” notification from our Apple Watch. It was ridiculous. We ordered, then about 20-25 min later the server came back and told two of our party they didn’t have the dish they ordered. Then one of us who got their food last, received the salad only, then waited and waited for their pasta dish. We had to get to a show so had to rush… it was a terrible experience. The server was nice but as they continued to turn the music up and up during each song, he kept saying, “I can’t hear you I’m sorry” but then turn it down then if you can’t hear us! If you can’t hear us, we definitely can’t hear each other. We will never return. The food was fine though, but not worth returning for.

    Whole snapper and scallops were the stars along with slightly over salted grilled octopus. Skip the artichokes and salads. Party in adjoining area made it difficult to hold a conversation and while the waiter tried to make up for it with wine for all we honestly wanted to get out of there. Great atmosphere without the party noise and morbid Halloween decorations.

    Was seated rather promptly, loved the decor and ambiance. I use to frequent at previous business that was here as I love in FiDi. Place is really nice, staff was super friendly and attentive. Started w appetizers ( zucchini chips ) and raw bar, did not disappoint at all. For dinner I had the ribeye and my wife had lobster tails. Both were on point and very impressed. Will definitely see my face here more often

    Sadly the quality of the food has declined rapidly. The lamb chops were fatty and the meat on the combination plate smelled like it had turned slightly bad prior to being cooked. Here'e the easy fix: Find a restaurant manager who knows not to sit in the back of the restaurant when customers are in the establishment. Find a cook who knows how to cook, select quality meats and knows how to rotate the food in the kitchen to avoid spoiling. The restaurant is beautiful and could be a destination.

    I honestly wish it was better, it could be a neighborhood gem for me, but I was extremely dissatisfied. Although the staff was very nice, Too many people working with no real direction on good quality service. They are spending more time on what they want the place to be versus the task at hand with the few clients that were there. Food, definitely could be better. Unfortunately I have nothing of value to offer for a nearby diner. I really want this place to do well and be great it could be such a great place!!!!

    I went with a group of five people and we LOVED it! We shared four appetizers, four entrees, and dessert, and the food was incredible. APPS: Octopus was cooked to perfection The spreads were tasty and the pita was divine Tuna tartar was fresh and the perfect size for sharing Oysters were fresh and perfect! DINNER: The lamb chops are probably the best I've EVER had (and I've been to Greece!). We shared two fish dishes ( the sea bass and branzino) both well-prepared - no bones and very tasty. Everything was fresh, presented beautifully and delicious. SERVICE: Our serve was incredible - we always had drinks and the recommendations were spot on! I would absolutely recommend this restaurant if you're downtown, or if your uptown try Tinos (a sister restaurant)

    I went for a Sunday brunch with my husband. We had made the reservation for 11:45 Am. We got there on time. Once there, we were just two of us. When we left, the restaurant was still empty. Also, It was pouring out there, which might be the reason for the emptiness.
