Efficient and prompt service. Great simple dishes guaranteed to please a wide range of palates.

Given it's location, I can understand it's popularity. We had a party of 6, and while it took a while to get the reservation we were seated after a short wait at the door (ps: there is no where to stand while waiting for a table except the bar and outside). Great cocktail and wine list, however, $17 for a glass of cab (the only cab whether by the glass or bottle on the menu), that retails for $35 seemed a bit excessive. Their small bites menu was creative, but the dishes lacked punch. The flatbread was heavy on cheese, light on seasoning and taste. Dinner was mixed, as well. The swordfish was nicely done, the burger was average, and the pork chop looked inedible. These upscale American gastropubs continue to be all the rage after the Spotted Pigs success, but amidst the dim lighting and popular address, you can't help but feel the place needs a bit more "umph" in it's dishes to truly achieve true that "rustic fresh from the farm taste" in an "unpretentious atmosphere." One wouldn't think you have to work that hard to be authentic, but that's what it takes when there's one of these ever square block. Overall I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars, as at the end of the day the food just doesn't fit the bill (literally). Recommended: Escarole App and Grits for dinner w/ Bread Pudding Dessert.

Omg their burger is amazing. A lot of the other food i've had throughout the years is good too. Great local spot.

I used to love it here. Albeit the first time I went when it opened I had to send back my meal two times before deciding to give up altogether (pork chop coated with salt and then a raw pork chop replacement) But because I heard great things I gave it another shot and loved it since. But I went last night and have to say it sucked. The hostess could care less--just pointed to the communal table to seat ourselves despite loads of empty tables. The waiter only checked in when he brought the check. Needless to say, I'm checking this off my list of places to return.

We arrived at the beginning of dinner and were seated right next to the only other couple in the restaurant despite it being empty! Food was pretty good but not as good as we anticipated. Good but not amazing. Shrimp and grits was the most interesting entree we had, but perhaps, a bit too smoky. Mussels and fried chicken were ok, nothing too special. Atmosphere was very pleasant. With so many other choices in the area I'm not sure I'd want to explore this one any further.

This restaurant looked nice to me until they spilled a quarter of a bottle of red wine on my dress, on my handbag and on my coat and scarf. I was pissed but just said it was nothing else special. At the end of dinner I assumed that they would offer us the bottle of wine as a quarter of it ended on me but they didn't. So I asked to talk to the manager and then things went from bad to worse as the manager said she would not offer us the bottle as she could not see the stains on my dress. In other word she was telling me that I was lying about the wine that ended on me. I had to get up and went under a light to show her the stains so that she accepted to at least offer us the bottle of wine. This was a disappointing experience as nontheless they spilled wine on me but also treated me of being a liar. I will never go this restaurant again as service is soooooooo spotty and I completely disrecommend anyone to go there. Hope this will be helpful for you.
