I have been trying to get this place for the past year. I finally made it!! I enjoyed the decor and decided to sit at the bar. I liked the old barrel tables, the staff's outfits and the dimly lit environment.
I was just here for drinks and luckily that's all because they were PRICEY!! You are definitely paying for the fresh ingredients being used, but geez between me and a friend, our bill was close to $80 with about 2-3 drinks each.
The raid appears to still looming over the staff and the establishment. It wasn't crowded and the staff was quick to share the details about the ongoing situation plaguing the bar.
My suggestions - start out with a drink - if you are on a date...then quickly move along to your next destination.
