“Dining in a Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

The room is very open. with a few interesting nocks, but, generally, the atmosphere pretty open. The prohibition decor, painted by a local artist.however, are outstanding and the pulled lamb sandwich, fronted by a plate of half dozen raw oysters with the very nicely priced malbec, made this a wonderful meal. Staff was attentive, without being pushy. The secret, look around at the decor, and tell yourself, and your waitress, you're in no hurry!

“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Came here late in the evening 10 PM or so. One of the few places open late on a Monday where there was a good size crowd.

Nachos were great and if you like lamb, I'd recommend the pulled lamb sandwich.

“Great service. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

A little pricey but Worth the money while the music was playing outside it have the restaurant a nice vibe. Our server "youngerman" as she was listed on the receipt was great. Super nice and very helpful with my gluten and dairy free needs. She told me that the fryer was gluten free!! Helloooooo best sweet potatoes fries I've ever had! Salmon was great but piece was a bit small. But lots of veggie and rice. A+ for service and A- for quantity of protein. Two people. Two drinks. An App and two entrees 95$ plus tip.

“Very Accommondating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Arrived here at 5:30 hoping to get a table for 9 people and despite being busy they quickly accommodated our request. Our server couldn't have been nicer however the service was a little slow. It was nearly an hour after our order before the main entree came. To my surprise though, the food all arrived together, was piping hot and delicious. They have a varied menu for any taste and an excellent patio. The inside is nice too with a lot of history and character.
