    Delicious food, I definitely recommend the duck bao buns and Trofie pasta, as well as cinnamon pastries. All were fantastic! The only drawback was we were given patio seating and the heaters kept turning off and it was a bit cold outside. Otherwise, great experience.

    Overall good. Disappointed at the downgraded menu without a heads up as most of the items my date was interested in were not available. Bunch of the clase azul bottles with the flowers on display were knocked over which isn’t a deal breaker but does ruin the ambience. Some of the ceiling lights weren’t working either which also sucked. Overall would go again. Hopefully the full menu is available.

    The food and service was excellent. My friends and I got the tuna tacos, sliders, dumplings, calamari and the risotto. Each dish was so tasty. The server was extremely kind and patient with us when we were deciding what we wanted. The bartenders were also so nice as well. The place has a great atmosphere and the energy is so lively. I’m so excited to go back and bring some more friends with me!

    I found it was overpriced for overall value, especially cocktails. Tuna sashimi was delicious, risotto …. Meh. Our server was so busy getting water off the canopy, we were left to quote our own devices, then she just got caught up and forgot about us.

    Patio needs a re-fresh. Didn't look like the instagram pictures. Menu looked amazing, but the oysters and beef tartar were very disappointing. Food missed the mark for us. Cocktail and service were great though!

    Food was good. We took three appetizers (calamari, octopus and the dumplings). We enjoyed them. Drinks were alright as I drink basic stuff and my gilfriend took a pitcher of sangria. The downside of our experience was our waitress. When you order a pitcher the waiter should pour the first glass, which she didn’t. She didnt seem like she wanted to be there. We would give the place a second shot but for almost 300$ before de 20% tip, We were expecting a better service. As we left, we passed by her and she didn’t even say goodbye which ended our experience with a sour taste.

    The outdoor terrace was dirty and loud. We were greeted with “you have 90 minutes”. Cocktails were good. Food was ok but felt like fast order - thick sticky sauces on too large quantity. The charcuterie and cheese were very good. Service was good enough. Overall, perhaps should be an appetizer spot for underaged drinkers. Not for adults.

    Chloe was an outstanding server who had a huge impact on my wonderful experience. Chloe took the allergy at the table very seriously and went out of her way to ensure there was no cross contamination. Above that she hit all the boxes for being a fantastic server, I hope to have her again! Thanks Chloe !!

    I'm afraid it was not good a visit. Fries were cooked from frozen, no seasoning, no truffle taste. 30 min waiting for any food appear on the table, and there were only a few other tables busy. Waitresses were running around a lot but not as efficient.

    Even though we had reserved inside the restaurant we found that it wasn't too cool out so we opted to eat on the beautiful patio. They have heaters and a top which they can roll on if need be. Towards the end of our dinner it began to rain, so we were very grateful for that top which kept us dry. Food was lovely, good carte de vins. Eclectic and interesting menu. It was my birthday so they presented me with a dessert board which our whole group shared. This was unexpected and quite charming on the restaurant's part. I will go back to try more stuff on their menu.

    Went with a friend last night and we had excellent drinks and shared the dumplings (which were also excellent). Other tables' food also smelled amazing (in fact, we only came for drinks but had to try food after seeing/smelling it). Very instagram-able interior, and my friend saw the back patio and said it also looked like a great vibe. Only thing was that it took forever for our server to come back to us between giving us our first drink and to order our second drink plus food. We were however topped up with water repeatedly in between. Would recommend and will return to try more of their food!

    We went there for our 11th wedding anniversary. We were told we had 1.5 hours because they had a big party. Part of the party was already there. It was loud and the music was loud. It took over 30 minutes to get our drinks. The drinks were tasty and food was good but the service was slow. We couldn't even order dessert because we ran out of time due to the very slow service. It wasn't how we wanted to celebrate our anniversary...

    Le service était horrible. La serveuse a meme été jusqu’à vider l’eau de nos huître directement à nos pied sur la terrasse. Pour la nourriture, je crois que c’était une très mauvaise journée pour l’équipe de cuisine. Problème de cuisson, sans parler du mélange de tomates sécher et de confiture de fraise sur la charcuterie. Au moins si il y aurait eu un peu d’amour dans leur plat

    Somewhere has a lovely patio and is clearly a popular/trendy spot, but when it comes to food, not sure if it was an off night for the kitchen but it was passable at best. And slow. The cheese plate had generous portions, but consisted of 4 aged/hard cheeses and could have benefitted from a bit of variety (and maybe some from local producers). "Seasonal pickles" were gherkins from a jar. The duck buns got good reviews, though. My steak was not a particularly nice cut, it was tough (the dull steak knife was not up to the challenge) and under-seasoned, as was the smashed potato (nice texture on that though). My dining companion's blackened shrimp skewer was blackened on the outside but cold and almost raw. My other friend's shrimp pasta included 4 lonely smallish shrimp. Drinks are pretty outrageously expensive but good. I think we might have been reasonably happy going there for drinks and appetizers, but overall it was pretty disappointing (and overpriced) meal.

The drinks were delicious and the food made this restaurant now in our top 2 favorite places to eat! The presentation of the food and drinks was beautiful and made the experience even more enjoyable!

    Overall, the experience was very good. My girlfriend is a very picky eater and that's the only reason I put 4 stars on the food (If it was up to me it would've been 5 stars :D). prices were a little high but the taste justified it 100%. The Japanese dumplings and the pasta we had were absolutely to die for. The service was excellent and because it was my girlfriend's birthday, we got cake slices served to us on the house! Great experience overall and I would recommend somewhere diner bar to any of my friends!

    Friday evening patio reservation confirmed by the restaurant a few hours prior. On arrival told we only had 1.5 hrs since a party was taking over the patio. No offer to seat us elsewhere was made. We should have been notified when they confirmed the res. Cocktails were delicious & server was great but the food was mediocre at best.

    me and my friend ordered pasta. Had no taste to it, thought we had covid at first. We both had to put A LOT of salt to be able to actually eat it and actually taste something. Waitress was very nice and let me order another plate instead. Food and drinks are overpriced, felt like I wasted my money. interior is nice and service was good.

    Food and service was amazing and some of the best mocktails I've ever had!! My ONLY complaint would be the volume of the music when it was just our table and one other out on the patio. I understand for late night as it got much busier, but at 7:30, i would turn it down just a touch. 10/10 for food, drinks and service!
