Loud is the operative word. Noisy, so noisy that it is almost impossible to have a conversation.
If you are vegetarian or vegan, forget it. There is nothing for you here. Meat, meat, and more meat. The arugula and beet salad with goat cheese was tasty, but the arugula was rather tough and it was enough for the whole neighborhood. My entree was lamb. It was undercooked (rare) with a heavy sauce that drowned out any natural flavors. The mashed potatoes were bland and had a heavy, chewy cheese that ruined the dish. The asparagus was charred. Why? This only makes it carcinogenic, and is completely unnecessary. The waiter was terrific. Now I remember why we haven't been to this place in years. A good place for a neighborhood hangout, and to drink, but as a restaurant, it's not so good.
