I met up with some friends to have dinner and catch up. We planned on having a drink first but the bar area was very noisy and there was no way to have a conversation without yelling. The maitre d' seated up as far away from the crowd as possible. The service and food were great.....very interesting menu.....attentive service without being overbearing. The big BUT was the noise......even at the table we noticed that as the evening progressed...the restaurant got louder.
Would recommend if you aren't trying to have a conversation with anyone and looking for a good meal as well as a very lively bar.
