I came here for brunch on a Sunday morning. The crowd was a mix of hipsters and families. There really was something for everyone and everyone seemed to belong. I had a delicious omelet and a Bloody Mary. The staff was friendly and attentive while the overall scene was extremely casual with fun music playing and somewhat dim lighting -... More

Nice location downtown. Close to center city and not crowded during the week. Food selection is varied and most things were served quick and tasted good. Korean Tacos A+, Cheese steak eggrolls A-, meatballs A. Service was a little slow on drinks (on the roof top), but it was a lovely day, not crowded (6pm on a Mon) and it... More

The restaurant's decor is fun and inventive. It was crowded and noisy when we went on a Friday night, but they were able to accommodate us even with no reservations. Food was great. We went upstairs to the rooftop bar after our meal to enjoy a few more drinks; it was a nice retreat.

Excellent food, nice staff, and not too pricey (high noise level). Best to make reservations, yet worth it!

The food was great, and so were the drinks. I actually came for breakfast and dinner on the same day that's how much we liked it. The red eye drink was awesome. Highly recommended.

Food and cocktails here are really tasty and excellent value during happy hour. The atmosphere is young, friendly and fun and the place gets busy by 7pm. The roof deck offers no sort of view, no cooling and is hot in summer

This place is a great find. Unique seating, numerous small plates to share with our group, great recommendations from the waitstaff, and pleasant atmosphere. It was a recommendation from a co-worker and it was well worth it. We enjoyed a relaxing meal in a great space.

The menu is made up of small plates that the table can share, and margaritas in fun shakers to share. It's a great place for 5+ people to all order a couple of items and sample everything that comes out. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is funky and energetic.

We stopped into this very "diner" looking restaurant from outside. It has the perfect location on a corner right in the heart of everything!! You walk inside, and it's very retro with seating upstairs along the perimeter of the square room, with the central dining space on the ground floor being two-story. When I looked upstairs we could see the... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and was as impressed as the first time. Got there late afternoon so they had a "Mid day menu" Somewhat smaller but lots of choices. Had a calamari salad that, seriously, would have fed 5 people. My husband had a cheesesteak eggroll which was yummy and we shared some Udon soup, also... More
