I was very excited about this restaurant when it first opened. I went, with several friends, and found it crowded, expensive, noisy and not especially amazing. I did not return. However, when some friends offered to celebrate my husbands birthday there, we went—I, not expecting...More

I’d not classified it as excepcional, but the food is great as well as the restaurant itself. I missed more options in the menu for a dinner or lunch, but there are good options of healthy appetizers to share with someone. The pizza is good...More

Everything was great. I would request the chef dish up a bigger portion on the brussel sprouts. Nat knows how to please the crowd with his serving!
