hear a lot of good things about this place .., the food is good, but the ambiance and prices feel waaay to high class for me.
went here last Saturday night. got there about 9pm. was very busy. in hindsight we should have gone elsewhere, but we were tired of walking around. To begin, before we even sat down we were told the easily half the menu was unavailable. Our waitress started with ...OK we re out of the following.... Come on, really? Saturday night and a full reservation book and you are out of food at 9pm. The food that we settled on (charcuterie) was very good. The service was also very good.
The place has a great ambiance and a friendly staff. We ended up eating at the bar since they couldn't fit us in at a table and it was very enjoyable. Sea bass was awesome and everything else we got was really good. Very reasonably priced. A must if you are in the neighborhood.
There is really no way to describe the menu. There is no real theme to it. Don't get me wrong, I loved the scallop dish, the sides choices are of a great and healthy variety, and the striped bass and ginger quinoa are a favorite, but something about the menu just rubs me the wrong way. The salads and entrees don't present the restaurant as one clear picture. It's like a Picasso painting...a bunch of objects thrown together that may not interest some, but others find a strange appeal about it.
Stopped in for a drink after work and was pleasantly surprised! OMG the guys were so cute! The food was tasty and the service was speedy! Great place, cute guys and good food!
I had a great time here on a date. They offer wine and cheese plates. Michael, who poured our wines, was very friendly and we especially loved the dessert wine that ended our night. If you're looking for some great wine selections, and a friendly place to chill with friends and sip some vino, try Ayza.
