The best thing about this restaurant is the service. It was spot-on and very friendly (they get an extra star just for the service). The food was a solid 2 stars. The Good: The BBQ was all very good, perfect flavor and tender. The Not so Good: The fish in every dish we tried was awful. It tasted like a fish market smells. Many of the other dishes seem to take the idea that complex flavors are so yesterday, lets make this cloyingly rich! We agreed that it was an interesting experience but we will not be back.

Had an awesome dining experience here with friends! Shared a variety of dishes between the 6 of us. Lots of tasty small plates, great for sharing. Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful in choosing and explaining the food. The cocktails are delicious and exciting. The food is different from anything else out there. Now I know what all the buzz is about. Can’t wait to come back!

If you aren't rolling in the dough don't even bother. The food was good but the portions are EXTREMELY SMALL! I went with a small group, we spent $161 and we were all still hungry after we left. I was also a little peeved because it was my brother's birthday and we weren't allowed to bring in the cake we bought.
