Real great drinks, interesting dishes with great variety and creativity. Good flavours and excellent staff. I ordered a bunch of dishes, including the elk loin, rabbit hen pie, the mushroom trio, and cauliflower. Flavours were on point and not over seasoned, really allowing the ingredients...More

Décor was very unusual with an assortment of interesting paintings. Lighting was very dark. Food was exceptionally good. Had a pasta with boar meat which was extremely well seasoned, with fresh pasta. Excellent desserts as well. Great service

This hole in the wall bar/restaurant has a low light ambience of a bar and classy restaurant. The burger was grade A. There was no cheap beer here. They had small brewery draft beers. The paintings on the walls and inside the menu are intriguing,...More

This place was awesome, the atmosphere is very strange almost like a dark speakeasy mixed with animal head-wearing portraits of people. The food was phenomenal and their signature cocktails were interesting. I recommend the wild one burger and the Mr. Peanutbutter cocktail.
