Food was great. We tried the Caprese, Tenderloin bruschetta, abd Dragon shrimp. Caprese was served first and was as one would expect, I would also prefer out as a palette cleanser between the other two dishes. The bruschetta had a good balance of flavors abd the veggies were cooked to my liking (reduced but still crunchy). The shrimp was perfectly breaded, just enough for a crunch yet didn't add a fried flavor, and had a memoir spice on the finish off the flavor. The prices were a little high fir the amount of food, but it certainly wasn't a deal breaker.

Loved this little place with the small plate "tapas style" sharing tastes. Seated promptly and it is part of Open Table so easy making reservations. Would highly suggest for others attending any Fox concert because it is easy to walk over after dining and having some great wine! We tried the chicken lettuce wraps, mushroom/tomato bruschetta, lemon zest risotto(awesome). Everything was awesome!

This was our first visit here. We were going to see Porgy and Bess, so tried this since it was across the street. We had a reservation and were quickly seated. Our server came right away and took drink orders while we looked over menu. We decided upon the Calamari, Buffalo style. That came out first and was limp and cold. Sent back and Chicken and waffles were served. Was interesting and very hot. Would get that again. Calamari returned, was shaped in long extruded shapes. Have never seen anything like it! My husband ate it because it was there.
Also had the lettuce wraps. This was ok, not that hot and served with a delicate tiny piece of butter lettuce that wilted as you put mix on it. So for bar food, it is ok. I don't think I will return, but lots of younger people were there and having a great time..

I have been here about five times and it never disappoints. The fries are among the best anywhere. The scallops are very good. The tuna was excellent. My husband had the fried chicken and waffles. He would order it again.

The server was very friendly but forgetful. All in all, a good dinner before the show at the music hall.

Great food and atmosphere. The Fish Tacos and Cajun Shrimp were excellent. The setting was comfortable and price was very reasonable.
