This is certainly a place if you have an acquired taste for middle eastern flavors. Unfortunately the only thing we enjoyed were the mussels and the drinks, both were delicious. The service was great, the waiter was attentive, the food looked beautiful, however the flavor of the sauce on the lamb burger was funky the smell was over powering and the taste was an unexpected disappointment. The side order of broccoli is enticing, however its just plain ole broccoli with butter. Lastly the pickled onions on top of fried chicken was not for me, I guess it was needed because the chicken under the breading was flavorless. Regarding the ambiance, its not meant to be a date spot, too loud for my preference, we could barely hear one another talk. This is more of a group space, that way you blend end with the loud voices. I give this experience 3 stars because the service was 5 star excellent!
Simply amazing experience right from the start! The hostesses were friendly, engaging and very accommodating as we had some circumstances with people arriving in our party on time. The atmosphere is unique and warm. Our server Jake was stellar and the food was superb! Highly recommended!
Food was great! Drinks were awesome! Ambiance was relaxing but fun. There was a casual yet upscale atmosphere that makes it perfect for dining with friends. Staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, & extremely helpful. Our waiter literally had an energetic spring in every step!
Small menu, okay food, but reasonably priced. Service was pretty fast and our orders were mostly correct. Cool ambience and not so loud that you can't hear each other. Party enjoyed the omelet and crab cakes... my stuffed french toast was okay.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here during brunch hours. Our waitress/ front of house members did a very well job. Making sure everything we asked for was done to the best of THEIR ability. As far as the food.the crab and eggs Benedict was good. But I wanted more to eat so decided to also order the brunch burger. I ordered it medium. When it finally came to the table, my burger was pretty rare. Like seared on one side for 30 seconds than sent to me rare. I dont like sending food back but this was too raw for me so I had to. Our waitress offered for it to be remade and boxed for us to take home. When I received the second burger, there was raw egg on and around my burger. I let it be know, but not wanting to send it back a third time, I decided to just take it home with me to further cook it. Our waitress took it off our check and we did not have to pay for it. But for this to be my first time eating here, it was not a good experience.
