I checked out this attractive neighborhood spot and the food was excellent. The service, while relaxed, was attentive. We will be introducing our out-of-town foodie friends when they are here next month.

Ok, not great. Good enough cocktails, nice sunday special offer with a great main dish, but why did me and my wife have to share a dessert while the guy at the next table, who ordered the same thing, had a whole one to himself? And no follow up on the dessert. I had gladly ordered something to drink to go with it, but our waitress was nowhere to be seen. Nah, I will not recommend this to others.

A friend and I were headed for Good, an always excellent and reliable choice, but found it closed for a private party on a Sunday night. So we tried Monument Lane a block away, a fatal mistake... Our scruffy-looking server (they all wear very casual street clothes) was difficult to undertsnad because of a strong accent and had to page through a little spiral pad to find the single special. I asked how large the "little plates" are and he said, "just a bite," so we decided on two dishes listed as "bites" - rabbit rillettes with pickles and spicy fried chickpeas. The rillettes were OK, but the toasted baguette slices served with the were stale and strangely bendy in the center, the chickpeas were good but not particularly spicy. My friend's main course, swordfish, was very dry and over cooked, while my "merluzza" (defined by the server as "like cod") was barely lukewarm and came with tasteless undercooked cabbage and equally tasteless sauteed mushrooms. Two $5.00 bites and 2 main courses (free sparkling water) = $80.00 with tip. Not a value for such a lackluster experience.

I visited Monument Lane on a Sunday afternoon around 2pm with 4 of my friends. We were seated quickly in the warm and attractive restaurant. Our waiter did a poor job, but I can't say the restaurant is totally bad because of a bad waiter(or at least a waiter having a bad day). The food was fantastic and I'll probably return at some point. The issue with the service this day was... The waiter wasn't attentive Didn't bring us plates for our bread Didn't offer us refills on coffee or tea Didn't check on us once our food arrived. We had to ask for the check and no plates were cleared ...and generally seemed annoyed with having to serve us. I'll go back, but I definitely wouldn't have this guy waiting on me again.

Our group of 6 tried almost the entire menu and nothing disappointed. Apps and mains were fantastic. The space has a beautiful plate-glass view of the street (townhouses), and is well-spaced, pleasant lighting, both intimate and social. The mixed drinks we tried were great. Highlights... short rib, tongue, the mashed potatoes and broccoli rabe that came with the porchetta.

Had dinner there last night, and we loved it. A small-ish corner place, with a vibrant bar scene and a nice overall energy level. The place was mostly full. The host was welcoming and the server charming, making some good recommendations for us. We had the mushroom and leek tart, which would make a great lunch all by itself, and the fava bean and spring onion toasts -- tney packed a real flavor wallop. Mains were the meatloaf, top notch, and the lamb sirloin, spiced and served with beautiful tiny vegetables and beans. Good cocktail and wine lists. Get the French press coffee -- you get your own little timer so you know when to plunge! This is not a destination resto, but great addition to the neighborhood. And... it's reasonable priced. Will we be back? You betcha!
