Recommended by co-workers for a nice place for brunch. Atmosphere was warm and host was friendly. For a Saturday afternoon, it wasn't crowd but service was slow and the food was average. Took a while to pay the check; not too on the list to re-visit.

We read some of the reviews and checked out the diverse menu and decided to give it a try. We made reservations the night before and we were sat immediately. There was an excellent specialty mixed drink menu along with beer and wine. We opted for smaller plates so as to try many things since everything looked so good. We... More

I love trying foods and that means if someone is willing to share plates I get to try more food. A win for me! The Pork Belly was cooked perfectly, the Duck Confit potato skin was yummy, the Beet salad was big enough to share and also really good. I also tasted my friends Short rib dinner... amazingly good. Needless... More

I went here with some friends for Sunday Brunch and it was fantastic. We had such a hard time choosing because everything sounded delicious. The wait for a table was over an hour - so we sat at the bar and it was wonderful. Sometimes when you are sitting at the bar you are an afterthought - not here. TJ... More

Really great place with friendly and helpful staff members. Tasty food and decent cocktails. Place can be very busy, so make sure you reserve a space.

Dropping my daughter for sophomore year and she surprised me with a dinner here. Atmosphere is great and our waiter Jermaine was fantastic. He answered any questions we had without missing a beat. The bread that came out while we ordered was warm, doughy and great. We shared a risotto encrusted fried mozzarella which was fantastic. The sauce with it... More

My husband and I recently took clients to dinner here and it was a great experience. Everything we ordered was delicious. Everyone especially enjoyed the apps - the lobster fingers, spicy cheesy shrimp, and pretzels with beer cheese fondue were yummy. And the Heath Bar bread pudding was delicious (and huge - I had to bring most of it home!)... More

The atmosphere is fun. The food choices are different and exciting but the food was a little over cooked and the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable. The deep fried pickles were my favourite and something I had not seen before. Given the tendency for US food to often be fatty this is a good alternative.

Ok, so I really just want to say "eat here, you won't regret it" but since I know you'll want more than that, here ya go. This place is a cool environment in a really cute part of baltimore (Hampden near Roland Park). It looks tiny from the outside, but once you get in, it opens up to a visible... More
