Love the food and the service was solid. Can get a bit pricey but it is well worth it. Much different Uptown then the downtown restaurant. Prefer the uptown one, more space and more comfortable. Good bar menu as well as good food.

Love this spot. It's tiny with wonderful ambiance. It's casual with great food. We like to sit at the bar. Small place, big taste. Definitely worth a visit

Not the best service and disappointing food. Fish was un inspiring, staff were chatty but often busy with other people.

I've eaten at the new locations and I wasn't too thrilled, but gave it a second chance in case it was the location. This review occured at the location by the court house. I had gone in with my son after class and figured it...More
