    So we were seated within our reservation time. The overall noise level was terrible most of the time. It only abated during table turnover. The server was awful. He was super aggressive and tried to rush us the entire which took away from overall experience.

    A dimly lit, upscale joint with good food and style. The roasted oysters and bone marrow was an incredible dish, and the pizza was phenominal. We splurged on Iberico Pork as an appetizer- $42 for a couple oz and some toast. The pork was incredible, but the toast had a very bold tomato flavored sauce that overshadowed the nuances of the Iberico. I ate it seperately :) Overall a solid place, great servicr and good flavors.

    We’ve only been to this restaurant one time before, but we absolutely loved it! They were five of us, and we got to sit at the roundtable, which was perfect. There was a special menu because of the holiday and I’m a bit picky… So I ended up with just a chop salad and shrimp cocktail but everybody else ordered a little bit of everything and said it was delish!
