Went for dinner on a Wednesday evening. White people sure do love the exposed brick, dark lights, and vintage fixtures. I understand this is a "craft" cocktail place, and the emphasis is definitely on the drink presentation. Even if the drinks aren't good, they do look cool. But I think it should be quality over quantity (quantity here meaning amount of hipster "artisan" ingredients and smoke filled glasses. I got 3 beers. One was awesome. One was oxidized. And I think they served me the wrong beer for the third one. This place tries so hard to be unique that it ends up being incredibly boring and common. I got a steak and a bunch of apps, which were all very good. Good, not great. Again, this place obviously focuses on the drink presentation, not food or service quality. Our waitress praised me for knowing the entire beer menu (which is impressive) before even walking in the door. In other words, she said "thanks for making my job easier." Oh...and they called it a "speakeasy." Translation = make dumb white adults think we're cooler than we really are by making them feel special and interesting because they have to walk down stairs to a secret room. Are people really that dumb? Apparently so since it was full of dumb white adults, including myself. Ha! But at least I'm smart enough to recognize it. Does that make me better? Probably not.

My husband and I were skeptical to visit this place because of the mixed reviews but Im so glad we did! It was our first time there and Jessie, our server, made us feel like home. She was super friendly and knowledgeable. She had a clear understanding on what to recommend for the drinks, appetizers, and main meal The food was super tasty and well prepared. We didnt have to wait too long for our food to come in. The atmosphere was just as expected. Will totally recommend this place for a date night!

We came here while visiting Charlotte for my fiancs birthday. Our server Amanda was amazing (seriously, we loved her) and she knowledgeable about the cocktails, menu and rich history of the restaurant. I had the Paloma and he had the Bitter X, which crafted by the head bartender. Both were great. For food we got the oysters, truffle fries and steaks. All were delicious. This was a great choice for a nice dinner; Id highly recommend this place.

I thought this place was great. I sat at the bar, which I highly recommend. Both Mike and Zach are phenomenal bar tenders who have their craft down. I ate the grilled oysters, tuna tartare and the scallops and they were all excellent. The cellar, speakeasy vibes also add to the experience. Order the Old Fashioned...they char cinnamon & pecans as part of the smoke which adds a nice depth of flavor.

Enjoyed my bday dinner here!! Definitely is a vibe inside. Ambiance, food, drinks and service were excellent. I will be back!!! For my Mac n Cheese enthusiast, theirs is good! They're known for their drinks and I see why. They're pricey but worth it. Very tasty using fresh ingredients and top shelf liquor
