    "A consistent hit is the spinach-and-ricotta gnudi, with candied Sicilian pistachios, micro sage, and a brown-butter sauce so tarted up with lemon it was impossible not to lick the bowl." Read more

    Standouts here are the lobster risotto, housemade gnocchi, & liver mousse. Spotty service, but the food is worth it! Sit next to the kitchen & sip on a Pekoe Punch while waiting for your food.

    Most delicious food. Cassoulet highly recommend. Also calamari starter and banana cake with coconut cream foam as dessert. Waiter a bit sulky though. Slight attitude issue.

    This is my favorite restaurant, period. We get the tasting menu on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. It's a bargain. Sit at the chef's counter and make friends with Nathan.

    Great deviled eggs. The calamari is really tasty & unique. Who sautées calamari? They do. Very well. Gnocchi is good. Burger, just meh. Get one of the other choices.

    The brussel sprouts and deviled eggs are divine! Also, I HIGHLY recommend the negroni here, it’s one of the best I’ve ever had.

    Ephemeral martini with gin was excellent, loved the octopus appetizer and the Arctic char entree. Warm service. Decor was strange, and didn't really match the quality coming out of the kitchen

    Uneven small plates keep this from being a destination spot, but some solid items like ahi tuna flatbread and pavlova are worth it.

    Their co-owner and executive chef, Kyle McClelland, formerly of Caviar Russe, brought along his chef de cuisine, Vinson Petrillo. The cuisine is described as “Modern New American”.

    Got here after the kitchen closed but the Painkiller cocktail is delicious. Looking forward to coming back for the food!

    Might go back but food is very quirky. Pasta with yogurt (not ricotta), tart pork ribs with cilantro, purple potatoes with Thai curry. Very noisy. You have to like unusual combinations of flavors.

    We sat at the chef's table, with a view of mixing bowls, had four courses and cocktails and weren't impressed by anything. Overhyped.

    Little secret...you can ask for the bar menu while sitting anywhere. Make sure to try the ahi flat bread.

    Get "The Last Frost" for dessert. The muscat grapes are a peak experience. OMG.

    The tasting menu could use some work. Everything was fine but nothing was inspiring. Service was average--we spent far more time with the food runner than the waiter. The wine list is decent.

    Very small portions on the 2 entrees we ordered. You really need 3 courses if you want to feel full when you leave. The food was good but not enough to justify the price/portion size

    Last night was a doozy Waited 1hr for food & had to send back Quail bc asked for medium-well and it was rare. Dish was tiny & laughable. Not worth the $ At least they comped the Quail for messing up.

    Too much truffle oil and the smallest plates known to man. And totally overpriced IMO.
