“Used to love this restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Disappointed. This was tied for my #1 favorite restaurant when they were in Deep Ellum. I finally got to the uptown location, and it just felt so ... different and superficial. It feels like a chain concept restaurant to me now. The food was sub-par & over priced for the lack of quality. The best part of our meal was the server and the drink he recommended, which was somewhere in the range of $12-$15. I am sad to have lost one of my favorites.
