The vibe here is fun, beautiful and the food was delicious. We loved the small plates, especially before a theatre performance. The wine was fantastic too. Our server was excellent (Robin, I think) and she was professional and friendly. This will be our go to dining place for our uptown theatre performances. Highly recommend!

Their food is small plates that cost ~$10 each. My favorites are the Pollo meatballs and the prosciutto brochetta as they are nice portions. The Yuka fries, were also very good, but a very small portion for the price.

Validated parking was great as well as the half off wines on Tuesday. There is no outdoor signage, so it is easy to miss from the street, but we will definitely return as the small plates were wonderful.

We told them when we got there what our time frame was, and our server made sure everything went smoothly and efficiently so we could leave at a good time. The food was delicious and the wine specials between 5-7 are great!

It's a great location and the food and service is excellent. I love their selection of small plates and the chicken meatballs are divine and the fried oysters as well. The menu is unique and it's great to be able to try different small plates and share. I also love the fact that they have a nice little wine list with lost of split (1/2) bottle selections.

However, the seats were extremely close to other people. There was another couple sitting less than 3 feet from us on both sides. We felt crammed and was surprised about this especially due to COVID. The service was great. We had Robin who made good recommendations and was very helpful.

The space is small, but has plenty of elbow room. You will want to make a reservation. It's connected to Aria. Parking is always a challenge - we parked in Founders Hall parking garage. This is a wine bar, so you should expect wine for drinks. They do have wine inspired cocktails. Quick shout out to Robin, our server. She was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and her recommendations were on point. Speaking of on point - the food was phenomenal! Small plates situation. We tried their version of a charcuterie board and it was amazing. The cheeses were all very tasty and the focaccia bread is to die for! We also tried the gnocchi and chicken parm. They were great as well, but for the lasagna. Might be the best I have ever tried. Overall, very solid!!! Highly recommend!

Robin, our waitress was incredible. She was kind, friendly and actually added to the experience of dinning at this restaurant. Robin made great suggestions on the menu that both my girlfriend and took heed of and we enjoyed our meals! I’m sure every restaurant would like 20 Robin’s on their wait staff!

We entered the unwelcoming waiting area about 2 minutes before our reservation and it took almost 7 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. There was nowhere to sit (or even perch) and the hostess stand is right next to the bar seating, so we were often in the way. We thought that the hostess was coming to greet/seat us, but she ignored us and walked away. I flagged her down (politely) and let her know that we were here for our reservation. She literally scoffed and said "I'll get to you when I can, I'm by myself. Be patient.".... ummm ok...? Imagine that happening at Steak 48, Bardo, etc. When we finally were seated (almost 15 minutes later), we were hopeful for the experience to turn around. Unfortunately, it never did. Service was painfully, painfully slow. We had a 9PM show at a theater next door and I thought a 7PM reservation would leave us plenty of time... we were almost late, and the theater is in the same building. We ordered 2 rounds of drinks, 4 shared tapas, and 1 dessert, and it took 2 hours. Multiple items were brought out incorrectly, or not at all. I ordered a glass of prosecco and it took over 15 minutes to arrive. The servers were not personable and were clearly overwhelmed. The food was ok. Maybe a 5/10. The pollo meatballs were rubbery in texture and relatively bland in flavor. The croquettes were actually delicious and we ended up ordering a second helping because our flatbread never came. The "bomba" dessert was a hit for me, but my friend HATED it. I think because it was messy and hard to eat... but I'm a sucker for anything ice cream covered in a chocolate shell. To top off the sub par experience, the bill was incorrect and listed things that we ordered and never arrived (including the previously mentioned flatbread). On our second round of drinks, only 1 glass of wine came out, but we were charged for both. Overall - wouldn't go back unless I had a VERY good reason.

Also it did not reflect what was posted online. It was much more limited. The waitress could not explain the menu items. She could not describe any of the dishes ingredients or flavors A server should be intimate with the menu. The food was ok. The mussels were cold and mushy. The meatballs were room temp but the flavor was good. The braciole was tough. The smoked salmon was good. The antipasto plate was good. The bruschetta was good but the bread was too thick and took away from the topping. And we ordered the baccala which was described as fried salted cod and we were served fried oysters. The service was slow. It took 20 min for a beer to arrive at the table. Thankfully we were also able to pick out own wine from the shelves. Just took a bit to get it opened. Maybe one should bring their own opener.

We made a reservation and were sat in the lounge with the low tables. That section should really be for walk-ins only - I think for a majority of people who make a reservation, they are looking to be seated at a booth/table unless they specify otherwise. The wine glass they first provided me was dirty - covered in a white powder. I can handle a water spot or two, but this was dirty. Service was very slow. You could tell the waitstaff was overwhelmed. They were kind and we were kind as well, but this unfortunately takes away from the overall experience. Finally, the food was good, but nothing that overcompensated for our overall experience detailed above.

We went for a couple glasses of wine and a light dinner. The pork meatballs were really good as were the potato crochettes. Our favorite dish was the scallops. They were absolutely delicious. We finished the meal with some Taleggio cheese which was also very good.

Our server was outstanding, even knew from our Open Table reservation that we are vegetarians and pescetarians. Love the small plate options, particularly the multiple bruschetta choices.

Most of the former restaurant remained in place with upgrades to a nicer bar and wines racks throughout. The food was great as was the wine. The veal sausage was fantastic and the chicken meatballs were very flavorful. I wasn't real thrilled with the lamb meatballs but everything else that we had more than offset for the lamb. I would definitely go back and highly recommend it.
