Going here you don't even need company because you can ride on the high of the crowd and the excellent staff. Just wish the Bar Seating was removed from reservations so it can be a true walk-in neighborhood joint

Food was yummy but I wouldn't go for the food, I'd go for the drinks and know that the food is tasty enough to allow you to try a couple of them! We sat outside and while nice to feel the sunny weather, the concrete floor leaves something to be desired. If you're seeking some romance, go sit inside instead (cute space). If you're a group and there is a nice breeze, sit outside. We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to go back!

And if someone in your group isn’t drinking they have true crafted mock tails. Try the N.A.groni you’ll swear you’re drinking the real thing. The service staff is very attentive and efficient. Their chef is on point. I was with friends and we split quite a few things. The duck wings! So good. Vegetable pot pie, bolognese, grilled cheese sandwich (we added prosciutto) smoked salmon mousse toast. All winners! Great atmosphere and they have a great patio for dining outside.

We went for my husbands birthday and were greeted with half flutes of sparkling wine. Our server gave suggestions and was patient and kind. We didn’t eat outside but we will next time. The patio looked breathtaking. There were really cool antiques and furniture with bright colors in various spots to brighten the space. The food was ok. We only got appetizers.

The clean white lines and old funky space remind me somehow of Swan Oyster Depot in SF. Very friendly staff. When we were seated, we were told that the seats were reserved again at a specific time so we could enjoy ourselves and not be rushed out. There were so many people interacting with us it was hard to say who was who. But there were more friendly interactions in about 90 minutes than in months of dining in many places. This is a gin bar. While they have an impressively curated selection of non gins, the gin list astounded me with styles and producers I have never heard of. Plus they had a flight of three gins with a bottle I have been wanting to try for a while. I let the bartender know I liked Roku Corpse Reviver #2s but wanted something else in a similar vein. I wound up with a Nikka gin Last Word which really hit the spot. My spouse had a gin buck which was lively and balanced: a really good fizzy tall drink. And we had the aforementioned Tea Flight with three gins all infused with teas. The Drumshambo Gunpowder gin was delicate and highly aromatic, just my style!. The second gin packed a wallop of tea flavors. I don't remember the name and have had far too much gin to go to the website to figure it out. The third gin was just meh, but two were spectacular finds! This is a serious bar and the food was far better than I anticipated and the menu looked killer to begin with. We had a sandwich, roasted green beans, deviled eggs and tinned stuffed squid. All spectacular. The best part is that our visit came to less than $100 for a whole lot of booze and food. And the amazing service on top was even better than the food or drink.

Our server did a great job suggesting the drinks we’d liked based on a brief convo. The food was pretty good but be warned, small plates are their thing. I would have liked a heartier meal. I’m planning to return soon and I eagerly await warmer weather to sit outside.

The food was good but very small portions, even for the small plates (3 halfs for the deviled eggs???) Pork belly was very good.

We were there for Valentine's Day, which had a pre-fixed menu. The food was amazing, the drinks were fantastic (and I'm not an expensive mixed drink kinda guy), and the people were so helpful, friendly, and inviting. We were a bit worried about noise when we came in with the amount of people in there, but when we were seated, we never noticed it again. We felt very cared for and will certainly be going back!

Service was cheery and my company was great. We sat outside on a 24 degree night, they had heaters going and tried to do their best to keep us warm. The owner Eric had called to confirm our reservation but also to tell us it would be chilly out and to bring a blanket. He was so kind and his call was so thoughtful! We will be back again very soon.

Purchased the ala carte pink moon oysters for an app with a pairing of brut, they were fresh and had a nice mignonette. The leek soup was rich and flavorful, I liked the pickled grapes on the duck salad. The main course knocked it out of the park locally sourced steak with a scrumptious butter sauce and lobster ravioli with a delicate savory yet sweet sauce with squash and parsnips. Time for dessert! delish dark chocolate torte with passion fruit sauce and a light well textured panna cotta. The craftfully made gin cocktails were the icing on the cake. elegant yet non pretentious . 100% would recommend. I also come in regularly for apps and cocktails and only have compliments.
