Full disclosure: I only came here to try the boozy hot chocolate after the Christkindlemarkt. We were lucky to grab two spots at the bar on a crowded Saturday night and the bartenders were very attentive and friendly. Even though I felt like we were taking up some prime real estate I never felt rushed out of the place. The hot chocolate was spiked with Jameson, curaçao, orange bittters and topped by orange slices. Delicious! I am a big fan of infused hot chocolate, but I didn't stick around to try any of the food.


Ugh, this was a pretty disappointing spot.  

My impression prior to going to this restaurant was upscale, fun, nice, etc

My impression after going to this restaurant was bad, sad and not good

The space was like a fast casual vibe when I was expecting much more.  We were dressed up and stuck out like sore thumbs.  I was under the impression that is was a steak/seafood spot but it felt much more like a burger/dog joint.

The food was disappointing...we had the seafood tower, octopus and meatballs.  The meatballs were some of the most bland items that I have ever tasted.  The octopus had WAY too many capers and through the entire dish off.  The seafood tower was ok, but I would never suggest ordering it.
