    For the size of the venue and the proximity of the musicians to the audience, the volume level was far too loud. Speakers and mics are hardly needed for such an intimate atmosphere. If speakers are used, they should be at the lowest level possible- enhancing and balancing the sound instead of blasting. The sound quality would be better and hearing damage would be less of a risk. I could hardly speak to the people at my table without yelling. Please consider asking your musician guests for a lower volume.

    I’ll be honest. This was a beautiful place. And I would love to come back. However, I made a reservation for 10pm and had to pay $30+ for the music. I ended up arriving at 920pm. The band that was playing stopped at 930pm. I was able to see 10 min of show. I’m just curious why be open until 11pm. And charge people for the show. When the last song is played at 930pm?! So I had plans with my partner for 10-11. I wouldn’t have even gotten to see 10 minutes of a show if I didn’t show up early. I’m just a little disappointed.

    Came here for my husbands birthday with some local friends. What a great find!!! Such a great experience and great ambiance. Right at the very beginning the staff was super helpful, attentive, friendly & funny. Chef Jorge was super nice & personable and his food was fantastic! Great selection of food, very professional & gourmet. Love their drinks & wine selection. This was also our first live music since the pandemic and the Andy Adamson Quintet did not disappoint! https://andyadamsonquartet.org/about.html We will definitely come back!

    The chef is innovative & creative. Menu changes on a regular basis. Some dishes stay on the menu. It’s definitely gourmet food and prepared well. A little too much salt for my tastes. Probably can ask for less salt when ordering.

    Only minor flaw in a wonderful evening was the table next to us, whose occupants talked nonstop, at a volume that made it difficult to focus on the wonderful music. Should we have asked to be moved? I don't know if that would have been an option.
