Feeling famished close to midnight on a Sunday, we stumbled in off the quiet street hoping for some bar food. Not only were they still serving a full dinner, but the place was hopping with diners and revelers like it was new year's eve. It was a little like the bar scene from Star Wars in the most delightful way.... More

The place opens at 6, and we were told that we had to vacate the table by 7:30. Since we had an 8 pm curtain, that was fine. We were skeptical, though, that we'd have enough time. When the bouncer came and opened the door a few minutes after 6, we were overwhelmed with the pretentiousness -- he made my... More

Excellent cocktails, up there with the best bartenders i've ever met. Only went for drinks and would have walked past if I had not been with my cousin (lives in the city) who took us there. It was really busy so couldn't imagine eating there later on (we were there around 10pm) as it was just too busy but was... More

We went here just for drinks in the evening. A cool speakeasy style bar, cocktails were delicious and atmosphere really cool. Entrance is through a pretend psychic shop so not the easiest place to find, look out for the bouncer outside!

Great place all round - cocktails, food and ambience. Couldn't decide on the starters so went with steak tartare and lamb wrapped in bacon, both of which we're incredible. The black bass was also amazing.

Make sure to make a reservation. It is a very popular place. Great scene, great drinks and great food! The bar is packed and lively. We went for a late dinner after a show.

Our party came here for dinner and drinks and everything was splendid. The dining area was intimate, dimly lit and hummed of conversation. My friends each ordered an app and entree, but I chose to go the I-am-going-to-order-my-weight-in- appetizers-but-only-eat-a-portion-of it method. This is a fave of my compadres because as bystanders they get to partake. :) I ordered the steak... More

The whole "exclusive" atmosphere works well. As others have mentioned the food was great and the drinks even better. A rad pricy but well worth it.
