Had drinks in the upstairs library and loved it. Small warm setting with a few seats available at the bar and a few tables for larger parties. Great bartenders

Service was slow on a slow morning for late weekday breakfast. Scrambled eggs came in a bowl; don't what that's about. I would not return, as there are so many excellent neighborhood options.

For a restaurant that had a wait and was packed, I expected better quality food. I would say the food was average at best. I had a salad to start, and then the pasta with lobster. The pasta was not cooked al dente, my husband had the fish and chips , the batter was sorry.
Overall okay, but not great, not sure that I would ever go back. The place is big and noisy.

We had breakfast here and the bacon came out hard and dry. When queried I got attitude and was told that was how they did it. She said they could do it soft but with impression that it was going to come out raw, what happened to the customer was always right.

The restaurant was empty except for us so I was surprised to hear a customer being turned away for only wanting coffee.

The atmosphere in the restaurant even though empty was lovely refined dining, unfortunately we won't be going back
