    Our server Jocelyn was so pleasant, attentive and made us feel like we were the only guests in the packed restaurant. Cocktails were very good and the food was delish. We did the restaurant week 3 course for $45/pp. Will be back again to try out the rest of the menu.

    It was my 1st time & I enjoyed it! I will return, the menu is unique & cool. The food was great & the popcorn was that comfort snack. Its small but you don't feel it. It was an adult chill vibe but kids & families were there. Remember parking will be an issue but the experience inside will make up for it.

    Great service and attention to celebration! Went for Brunch and even though we enjoyed our meals, I was disappointed in the Gluten Free options since they did not include bread which is a staple on many of the dishes and limited my choices. I will not go back for myself but recommend!

    12:45 reservation and it took until 1:15 to seat us. Service was impeccable and was the best part of meal. I think her name was Amber. Super responsive. Salad on the side of the parm crab & eggs was so soggy and horrible dressing. Also the cumin seasoning or whatever was on the burger should be left off. Other than that, food fair to good and service great

    Food choices were amazing and our selection - beet salad, octopus, scallops, tacos - was really well done. Service was attentive. The price is a bit high so I reduced the value proposition a bit, but highly recommend for a quality meal.

    Definitely will be going back. We enjoyed the craft beer and specialty cocktails. All of the draft beer came from MD breweries. Both of our entrees, short ribs and grilled bronzini, were very good. And the Heath Bar Bread Pudding was decadent. We sat at the bar. My only note was the staff was dressed in street clothes. Just a little to casual for the atmosphere.

    This is such an eclectic eatery. We tried the salmon, hummus and cheese sticks. The salmon was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The hummus was called falafel-flavored and was definitely a little different but also tasty. The cheese sticks, well, what can you say about mozzerella, except these were a foot long and served with a fra diavolo sauce!

    This restaurant is amazing! It was our first visit and I can’t wait to go back. We had brunch and very much appreciated the ability to make reservations. The menu had some breakfast basics, but each with a fun and interesting twist. So many great options it was really hard to choose. My husband got their take on Huevos Rancheros and I got the Shakshuka. Both were so tasty! They also gave us little in-house doughnuts with our coffee which was a great treat. Everything coming from the kitchen looked amazing. Burgers, chicken sandwiches and French toast especially. Wait until you see the GIANT mozzarella sticks! Do yourself a favor and go asap!
