The food was good, communal table setting was fine. It was a little hard to hear between the music and the chatter from everyone. Nice location at Union Square.

Great food. Good Service. However there was too much noise. It was unconfortable to stay. Good prices and good menu, but we had to eat fast just to get out of there.
