“happening place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

The stables are teeny, the lighting 25 watt; the crowds all around you --however the food is 500 watt!
this restautant deserves a higher rating in Dallas--slow and romantic no! more lke snappy and frantic but what fun--the main thing is the delightful originality and taste of the food, I wanted everything on the menu and will keep returning until I manage it. Here is innovation and excitment and simply fabulous cuisine.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Solid food selection. Love brunch here. Mimosas keep flowing. Definitely crowded, so be prepared to wait a bit at the bar. Other than that, it's a great spot.

“First Time for lunch, will return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Have been to both at dinner, but not for awhile. Kind of left me cold, too many people, to rushed. Food was always good though. anyway, sat on the patio for lunch yesterday and had a great experience. Excellent lunch choices, great service, and i remember just how good the food is here.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food and atmosphere are great - nice patio, and good service. Fresh made pasta - the tortellini with pears and walnuts is sinful.

“Love the pizza, hate the wait...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

I truly love the pizza here, but there is rarely a day in the week that you can just walk in and sit down. Most of the time there is a long wait list and being that there are several places that are good to eat in the area, it's hard to wait sometimes.
