The decor and the building is mainly what we will remember. The food was good but not for the price. The octopus appetizer was very good. Craft cocktails were also fun. Overall too pricy for what we got. Service was excellent.

Went there and ordered a steak. It was average. Pretty amazing atmosphere but the food is mediocre for the price point.

We went for Sunday brunch. The food was ok not anything special but waited 50 minutes after ordering. The waiter was friendly but couldn't get our food. Probably won't be back.

As I remember, there are small side dining rooms for private parties. Been a while since we dined here so I don't know how much of how it is set up now. Advise a quick call - they are very accommodating!
