Jazz on Monday night's is a nice touch. it was pretty loud in the restaurant. We had difficulty hearing the waiter and each other. The cocktails were nothing special and tasted watered down. We couldn't tell one cocktail from the other. Dinner thought was really...More

INCREDIBLY noisy place. When we came in and heard how loud it was asked if we could sit upstairs hoping for a quieter table. They found a table for us and it was still extremely noisy. Music was loud (and got louder after 10 pm)...More

I've been living in the area very close by since before Halcyon was open, yet I'd never been. I always thought it a higher-end tack on to Egan's. So I was incredibly surprised when I walked in on a Saturday night and the place was...More

The food and drinks are always great. I had the Halibut over broccolini with red pepper sauce and it was excellent. For an appetizer I had the grilled oysters which were delicious. I'd compare them to places in New Orleans they were that good. The...More
