First time I visited we sat at a table and received decent service. No real complaints, but nothing outstanding. It did seem to take a long time to get a cocktail order filled during this visit. When I visited again I decided to sit at the bar thinking the service would be better. Huge mistake. 6 girls were back there "bartending" but none of them seemed interested in actually interacting with bar customers and did everything to avoid eye contact. It was easier to get a full review

I have eaten here several times. It is a nice place with good food and good service. The last time I went was last Wednesday. I ordered the pork carnitas bowl which I thought would be amazing. Unfortunately, the dressing on it is a strong sweet and sour vinegrette. For me, it ruined an otherwise healthy and delicious bowl. I wish they would offer that on side so I can decide how much to put on, if any. I am sure I will go again, I just will steer clear of that bowl.

CANNOT RECOMMEND you come here for tasty food.The place is clean & esthetically appealing, but the different meals we had were less than mediocre.The GASTROPUB BURGER was extremely disappointing. I dismantled it to see if I was able to eat it, all to no avail.How do you mess up MAC & CHEESE? It was FLAVORLESS, except for the heavily peppered bacon.The BLOOD ORANGE GINGER iced tea tasted like watered down regular tea.If you like to gamble, take your chances here, but order full review
