    Out of everything!

    Been here several times and they never seem to have anything. No steak, no lamb, no veggies, no beer! The place is not really taken seriously. It's a shame.

    bad service

    I went with my husband for brunch. The hostess had a bad attitude and did not answer our questions. The weitress was nice but she disappeared and the food arrived after about 45 minutes. Other customers were complaining and others left because they were not be seated or acknowledged. Perhaps we got tham on a bad day but we won't go back although the food (once we got it) was fine.

    unpleasant

    was ignored for the vast majority of the meal, never had my drinks refilled or asked if i wanted another, waited an hour for our food. my friend ordered tea and didn't get it until halfway through our meal. almost all of the orders were wrong and some of the food wasn't even what was described on the menu.

    comical service

    we came here as a large group for brunch and even though there was only 1 other table in the restaurant, it took half an hour for anyone to even take our drink order... then we watched the bartender stand behind the bar for 15 minutes, and not even attempt to make our drinks until we reminded him. and then we had to ask several times for someone to take our food order. just about everything came out wrong, and some of it didn't even resemble what the menu said (i.e. i ordered french toast stuffed with cream cheese and orange preserves and i got plain old french toast that i could have made better myself). no one ever came to refill our drinks -- i was planning on getting the 3 drink special, but literally couldn't get anyone's attention. to top it all off, they added a 20% tip to our bill. when we left 15% instead, they literally called us back into the restaurant and tried to make us give them 20%, telling us we were still $12 short. please never go here.

    deflation isn't all bad

    this is the most amazing value i've encountered in years. the service is a little slow, but lovely and kind. they really do seem to care here. and $13 for perfectly cooked salmon and $11 for a large plate of wonderful mussels with chorizo bread crumbs and fries is stunning. try the crispy chick peas. they're better than potato chips.

    Nice Spot

    I went here for brunch with friends. I wouldn't say the service is bad, just very laid back and not pushy. The waitress and owner/manager were very friendly. The food is amazing. The value is very good although they no longer offer the unlimited drinks for brunch, there is now a maximum of 3 and you only have 2 drink choices. I'd go back in the evening for sure.

    Patient Bartender!

    With some friends in town for the weekend I wanted to take them out to have a drink at a local place. Seeing as this place just popped up recently, we decided to give it a try. Two members of my group were not big wine connoisseurs and didn't know what type of wine they wanted. After pouring 4 different wine samples for both of them, they settled on a Stella. The bartender was very patient with them as he seemed on a mission to make them happy...something you rarely see around here! The rest of my party shared a bottle of red wine, which was superb (suggested by the bartender as well). We nibbled on some olive hourdervs, but didn't order other food. I will definitely stop by again to try out the rest of the menu.
