I was really excited for someplace new to open so we decided to check it out before we saw a movie at CIneoplis. Fortunately one of my friends told me it was really crowded so we should make a reservation. When we got there we were glad we did! Even though we had a 6:00 reservation (pretty early) they were telling people without a reservation that it was a 1.5 hour wait!
We ordered the cheese plate, butternut squash soup and the salmon. Everything did taste really fresh, which is their "thing" (farm to table), but nothing was extraordinary. It was all good but I wanted it to be better. The lemondrop was great and there was a really good and extensive wine list of glasses and bottles of wine.
I will say that the happy hour had some great deals. We tried to check it out but there were 3 people deep at the ball and all the table spots were taken. It was 5:00 on Friday so maybe you need to get there at 4 when it starts? Happy hour is every day which is nice so we'll try again some other time and hope to get a place to sit.
The interior design is really cool and it looks like they have a great patio that will be nice when it gets warmer. It was really loud so nice for a fun night out but maybe not so good for a romantic dinner or a business meal.
