What we like: the atmosphere, the food concept, small plates, decent wines by the glass, people watching, location.
What we don't like: depending on who is manning the hostess stand, the service level can suffer. While I know it can be a thankless job at times, it's not hard to be nice to people.
All of this being said, we return every time we are in the area. Just make a reservation and enjoy the eclectic and noisy atmosphere.
