    Food is very much overpriced FR the quality. If you get a poke bowl, they will charge you $1 for soy sauce (think about that, now). The dish was bland without the soy when it shouldn't have been. My partner's burrito was very sub-par. We could get better food for cheaper elsewhere. Definitely did not feel welcomed by our server - although the host was very kind. I was hesitant to speak to the server after making our order at all, honestly. Not even an attempt at a smile or anything friendly.

    Hard to accurately rate sound level as a band was doing their sound check, and we where there eating before we saw the band so we weren't upset about it and enjoyed it. But going off past experiences it can be a little to loud in there especially seats closer to the bar.

    The band was setting up and tuning their instruments so it was a tad loud when we first got there. To help out without even asking us they moved us to the back or the restaurant when we first got there which was appreciated. Everything else was once again fantastic.

    Please bring back take-out option, thank you very much

    The Flying SteamshovelResponded on March 14, 2022Hi There, Thanks for the feedback. With the easing of restrictions, and more seating in the restaurant, our kitchen has not been able to keep up the volume demands of both dine in guests and take out guests. We are looking forward to adding takeout back to our offerings in the near future.
