A few minor things which are easy to improve would make this a great place for a dinner & drinks. (1) I ordered an old fashioned - a pretty straight forward beverage, however it was an over sugared glass of ice with what amounts to a fruit salad. Bartender is using a full orange slice vs. an orange rind, excessive volume of Ice & simple syrup with crushed cherries made it overly sweet watered down beverage masking the bourbon. (Should use 1 large ice cube vs. cup of ice). (2) I ordered the parmesan truffle fries with my burger ($4) up charge. My meal came out with regular fries, I mentioned I had ordered the parm/truffle fries - and the waiter brought back a cup of truffle oil & a ketchup cup full of parmesan. At $21 for a burger + fries, it was pretty disappointing.

Those small tables in the middle are way too small for a business lunch and VERY uncomfortable to eat.

Looks good and feels good but the staff is plastic and pretentious. They don't express sincere apologies very well when they mess up, so I'm convinced the wait staff are trained to upsell you in a "dumb blonde" way by excusing themselves for not communicating well or mentioning the upcharges or mistakes. I would not recommend.

At 7:30 we were still not seated. The manager was very kind and bought us a round of drinks while we were waiting. Very nice gesture!! The food was delicious! He turned a negative experience into a positive one!

If we weren’t three girlfriends chatting—and three non-complainers who avoid conflict—we would have really made a fuss. We were offered no explanation other than the kitchen was backed up; meanwhile the tables around us (seated after us) received their food. Our server apologized and thanked us for our patience but we would have liked to have been offered a discount or at least a free dessert. Very disappointed in this experience.

We arrived at 5:30 pm but it took almost 45 minutes to get our food. Not many diners but filled up at 6. The restaurant was.very understaffed. The tasty burger made up for it.

Also, I was charged more for an item than it was listed on the menu. I told the waitress she said "oh well, the charges must've gone up". I had to ask her to take the additional amount off of my bill. Poor service.

We were a bit surprised by the change in ambiance. It is really a "Hot Spot" now with all the positives and negatives that go with that. For we older dinners who are looking for more of a fine dining experience, which we recalled from the older location, the ambiance, manly music level, was not our liking - but to fair, it might be just what others want. On the plus side our food was great.We had the Restaurant Week three course special, which we would gladly get again. It was one the best Restaurant Week values IMO. In addition our server was excellent and cheerfully moved us from a less than idea small, high top to a comfortable booth. A good choice if you don't mind a bit of loud background music.

Our dining experience was very good except for how we were greeted. When we arrived a couple of minutes early for our 6:45 reservation, we were told by the young hostess that there would be a 45 minute wait. She didn't offer an explanation or a polite apology nor did she suggest that we wait at the bar. She just looked at us as if she didn't care if we stayed or left. Our table was actually ready in about 15-20 minutes. Our servers Sean and Carly were delightful and our dinners were very good. My husband ordered the crab and corn chowder, beet the goat salad and steak au poivre. I ordered the appetizer tacos, house salad and wild boar. The wild boar could have used a little more seasoning but every course was well prepared and presented. We hope for an excellent experience next time.

It took a little while to receive our food after placing our order and that was before it got crowded, however the burger and the salmon were both excellent. Will return.

Took one hour twenty minutes to get a few pizzas. We got multiple apologies that the kitchen was backed up but the restaurant wasn’t near full. Water refills were prompt and the last time round the water tasted like soap. When we mentioned it, the server apologized. On the positive, our appetizers were very good! However, pizzas were doughy, soft and floppy. Two out of four at the table had upset stomachs through the evening after dinner.

They charge $2 for no bun!!! What the heck?! They said it’s because they put down extra greens. I can’t eat French fries (diabetic) so I ordered broccoli instead and the cost an extra $4! I’m not going back. The food is already too expensive and the up charges are just silly.

After about 10 minutes no one came by, when the manager walked by I let him know that probably my server didn’t know I was here, and it’s been over 10 minutes could you please send him over. The manager rolled his eyeballs and didn’t say anything and went inside, did not apologize, but the server did come over shortly after. I ordered the Brown Dog club. It came out fairly quick and the french fries were hot which I love. The sandwich looked delicious it was a very generous portion, and everything on the sandwich looked fresh. The only issue was I had asked for the garlic aïoli on the side, and I did get a small portion on the side, but there was a huge portion on the sandwich also. I let my Server know that they put it on the sandwich and she kind of chuckled and said oh our Cook is new and he doesn’t really speak English, she did not apologize either. She did not offer to remake the sandwich. I ended up scraping off the lettuce and tomato from my sandwich because they were heavily doused in garlic aïoli. Not the best experience ☹️
