My brother kindly took me to dinner here for my birthday, so we went as an extended family with his daughter and her friend. Drinks were awesome. The whiskey smash was inspiring and we had a few. The main meal however, although good, ranged from ho-hum (macaroni and cheese which was not anearly as good as some packaged ones) to striving for more (beef marrow bones. We ordered two plates of these and found that the spoons barely, if at all, fit into the bones - bad choice of bones but good choice of menu). The service was adequate - we had to keep asking for serving utensils and silverware - even though they knew we were going to share the several appetizers we bought. Although friendly and courteous, they were not into service at all.
Main dishes were well cooked - the swordfish was perfect and the flank steaks were to order and tasted right. We had one little mishap with after-dinner drinks. I had ordered sauternes (one of my favorite wines - and the majority in my wine collection of several hundred bottles) but the wine that was served did not taste anything like a sauternes. Nevertheless, ti was sweet and nice and we decided not to return it. Basically an average dinner - made very memorable by the presence of family whom i have little opportunity to meet with. Oh - the noise level was also quite high and I could barely hear the conversation. My recommendation is that if you want a pub atmosphere - and fabulous mixed drinks, go here. Otherwise for good food and company, visit the ICOB next door instead - you will probably spend about the same and enjoy it more.
