This was unbelievably noisy. We were seated next to a door which went out to an outdoor seating area where live music was playing in addition to the music that was blasting in the restaurant so every time the door opened, which was frequently, the sound was totally deafening. In addition sometimes the waiters did not close the door so... More

Im sorry you did not enjoy the tuna. We were happy to take it off your bill and we also would have taken care of a replacement item had you not declined. I also apologize for the increased noise level due to a concert on Central Avenue, Viva PHX, which is out of our control. Part of being in the... More

We had a group of 5 and everyone had a great meal. Creative and delicious. Homemade pasta with pumpkin seed pesto was full of flavor. Roasted chicken on the bone so tender and tasty. Outside patio on a gorgeous night. And exotic drinks. Yum.

Fortunately we had a dinner reservation the night we came. The bar area was packed and the hostess was telling people it would be 3 hours for a table. There were empty tables in the dining area during our meal so the 3 hour wait seemed incorrect. Maybe she meant 3 hours to get a table in the bar? We... More

The atmosphere is great. Big space with lots of different rooms. Good bar selections and excellent service. Food was good and just perfect in size. Trout was really excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating above the street so fairly quiet.

We had lunch there with a group of 8. Service we extremely slow, especially at lunch when we needed to get back to a conference for meetings. The food was good, I had the chicken club sandwich and it was very good, made with a chicken breast not lunch meat and the bacon was very good.

My wife and I stopped here on the way back from dinner. What a great place to just CHILL and enjoy the vibe. We both had exclusive cocktails that were made to perfection.

In my 20 yrs working in the customer service and retail business around the world I have NEVER seen bartenders as miserable as the two gentlemen working at this bar. The manager should be mortified.

It isn't every day that you can have a cocktail flavored with fresh vanilla tobacco smoke (possibly at the violation of a no smoking law, come to think of it...) but that's just one of two dozen brilliant cocktails on the menu here. The waiter said the shrimp and grits were the signature dish and I'm glad I took his... More
