Our group meet on the patio and had a nice meal. Solid menu, decent prices, and the food was good. Service was a bit slow and the space was a little noisy (but that is to be expected on an open patio.) The big plus...More

I guess you are paying for the stellar location and unique options, but this seemed a bit pricey for gastropub-style food. Great spot for a date, especially in nice weather!

This restaurant came highly recommended, and I can understand why. The atmosphere was casual and seemed to be a comfortable gathering spot for regulars, both inside and on an outdoor heated porch. Also, there were many vegetarian options that were said to be very good....More
