“Met our high expectations”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Walking up to this place builds anticipation due to the lit up canvas awnings and outdoor fires. More than you would expect from a "mall" restaurant... The vibe was very club-like, and packed due to a generous happy hour that went from 4 to 7, even on a Friday night. Despite being packed, and an hour wait, they worked to seat a few small parties together at a large table... A nice touch. The beer selection was above average (a few good IPAs that I love), the calamari was great, and my Chicago burger with blue cheese and mushrooms was rich and tasty. Our kids both enjoyed their pasta dishes (sometimes hard to please outside of Noodles, Inc). Overall a great experience, and we will be back to try a few other menu items that also looked interesting ( like their firecracker pizza). We hope they will eventually be on open table or similar, but imagine they don't need it yet as they are plenty busy due to early buzz. Only knock would be if you are looking for a quiet place to chat. It's pretty loud due to the active crowds.
