The place is nothing special. The chefs need to be better aware of the temperatures of the proteins. Average food for average prices. Nothing special!

Tuesday nights, had a great line-up with an upbeat crowd in an intimate but comfortable setting. The food looked very good but i just had one of there plethora of choices from the bar, including a bunch of bloody mary styles.

Spotted this place on the corner and walked in without realising it was Harvey's. Small wait for a table so sat at the bar for 10mins with a drink but got a great window seat. Food was good, price was great, service fab - no complaints! The atmosphere inside is great - feels like it has energy.
