Been here a number of times, but first time with the new Chef, and they hit it out of the park with a New Year's Eve menu that was creative and really tasty. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was a great way to ring in the new year. We enjoyed the meal enough that we're considering making dinner here a New Year's Eve tradition.

Our server was horrible. We were there for a while to stay for trivia night and she walked past us numerous times without stopping for 45-60 min while stopping at adjacent tables. We were not obnoxious or drunk. We even wanted to order. Would ask to have a different server next time if we got her again. More

Not to be outdone in the fine dining department, University City is also home to Michelin-starred cafes and destination restaurants.
