“A gem in Lansdowne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Friends brought us to this BYOB, telling us it was surprisingly good for the neighborhood. They were right. In a neighborhood where you'd expect to find a good hoagie or pizza is an upscale restaurant. Folks around us not only brought wine but made cocktails. The restaurant provides mixers and even martini shakers. Service was excellent, with everything arriving just in time without being intrusive. Food was incredible.

Even paying the bill was fun. Our server brought an iPad with credit card swiper. First screen showed our total along with different tip percentages (including 0%). Next screen provided a way to have the receipt emailed. Very green.

“Simply Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

This is a very unique place that will be around for a very long time. Service was very good. The food was great and very well done. The menu has both usual foods and some off center foods. This is a great BYOB that we will very happily go back to again and again and probably a some more again and agains......:)

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

People should really read the website when looking at the menu...this goes for most restaurants. It does say that this is a sample and that dishes change. Also, the portions are appropriate....if you're looking for a doggie bag to escort you home...go elsewhere. This restaurant mixes food tastes/items that I would never be able to even think of putting together and tastes absolutely wonderful. The food is creative and delicious. The servers are incredibly knowledgeable about the food prepared and the place, itself, is very relaxing and kind of sultry. Definitely bring booze for their own cocktail mixes.
