“Mmmmmmm”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Such a sexy and laid-back bar. Every time I've come here I've enjoyed the sophisticated yet casual ambience and the prompt service. Never too crowded yet friendly enough just to be able to strike up a conversation with someone sitting across from you. Oh yeah, and the drinks here kick butt!

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

I remember many a liquified evening spent here back in the day. Went late after a so-so experience at an alternate city restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by crowd, atmosphere, great food (pizza and pork belly are highlights) and good service (considering the place was packed). Who knew they had such great food? Definitely recommend for late night snack. I'll be back hairy - loving your work!

“Quick bite in between Comedy Festival shows”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Went for a quick dinner in between Comedy Festival shows.Looks great but food and wine failed to deliver. Wine list contained wines from Get Wines Direct that sell for $6 listed at $50! Food we had was just above OK - tapas and pizzas. All the sauces looked like they had been squeezed out of a giant bottle - Subway style - gluey and sweet. Service was good and very efficient - obviously they want mutiple sittings!
