We ate lunch here and enjoyed the menu choices, had delicious truffle fries. No space for dessert , all good. The short rib tacos tasted more like bbq then short ribs. The sliders were yummy but too rare for my taste.

Perfect for tapas and cocktails on a Friday night, even better sitting at the bar where service is good and friendly. Mains are better at a table with more elbow room. Beware their featured cocktail listings-NO PRICES LISTED. When asked, waitress responded they were about...More
