While the flavors were interesting, the food was overpriced and overrated. But what really makes the rating was the service. Extremely bad, which we suspect may be because we’re not European. Some of what we ordered never made it to the table. And the different dishes were either rushed or sat on the bar for an extended period. Sorry TripAdvisor users, this is a strong pass.

Traditional Czech with a modern twist! May have been the best meal we had our entire trip. The mixture of textures and colors on traditionally muted, softer foods was an absolute delight. Best cabbage soup I’ve ever had!!! Matej provided such great insight and a great experience for our first time here!

I will never forget the jus that accompanied the amazing short ribs. Just stunning. Superb service. The menu is split between a modern take on traditional Czech cuisine and Japanese. Mix and match if you will but I stuck to the Czech side and was blown away by the dishes.

Delicious food, Incredible atmosphere. Lilla was an amazing server - very helpful and really pleasant. We ordered to pork gyoza, chicken yakitori which were delicious. Also got the stuffed pepper - light but also delightful. Would absolutely recommend. The wine was also lovely - I ordered both Czech and Slovakian wine. And do not skip the sourdough bread - a fantastic starter to the evening.

This restaurant checked all my boxes. The food was so stellar. Explored enough that I was tasting flavors I never had before, but didn’t get so outlandish that I got scared to try something new. The service was so great and the hostess was very kind and accommodating. Our server Matej was the BEST. Every recommendation hit the spot. Delicious cocktails, delicious wine, delicious dinner and DO NOT SKIMP ON DESSERT.
