Been here a few times. The upstairs bar is usually crowded at night. The multiple bartenders I've encountered here have all been more on the rude side than customer friendly. Drinks have been good. Casualness and good place to mingle with your friends. The downstairs restaurant doesn't have a huge selection menu (hardly anything for vegetarian or vegans either), but the food was definitely of great quality. Overall, decent spot to go to.

Had a blast here. The place is beautiful. Great staff. And amazing drinks. I did notice the bartenders and one of the waitresses didn't get along and they were kind of rough on the waitress. But it seemed like she didn't want to take the advice of the bartenders as well..regardless. pretty attractive people..chill vibe..

We attended for New year's and had a very nice four course dinner. The dinner was pricey but had great service and food. I would highly recommend making a reservation as there can be a wait in the evening. In addition it was way way cheaper to purchase a bottle of wine than to buy individual glasses. Overall I had a great experience here. The reasoning for 4/5 stars is because for the price of dinner (being well over $100 per person) we should of been allowed access to the rooftop area without paying the additional $50 entry fee.
