Foursquare Tips

  • Great food, service and wine. Staff is extremely knowledgable about wine pairings.
  • Not your mom's pork chop. Unless your mom makes the best pork chop ever; on a cauliflower puree with butternut squash and pork belly. Honestly, when a pork chop is done right... you can't go wrong.
  • Nice people working at that joint but the food was overpriced and disappointing. Go for cocktails, skip the resturant.
  • Eat before dining upstairs. The meals are way over priced. It's not like it's Girl and The Goat. Also why is the alcohol selection different between the two separate floors? I don't understand.
  • This place had great signature cocktails. Try the "Teachers Lounge." Everybody would be happy if that was in the coffee pot.
  • Great food,, Amazing decor, outstanding service
  • Loved it. It was a thx giving set menu but still delicious. Nice chilled vibe in both the downstairs bar and upstairs restaurant.
  • Awesome service, octopus was great, and the pork chops were very good as well.
  • Great food, drinks and service. Even with res had to wait for a table--got free drinks and apps and apologies! Pricey. Def recommend--maybe for special occasion!
  • amazing service. the staff was incredibly accommodating and gracious. not to mention the food and wine - unreal.
  • Although the first floor is the most aesthetic, be sure to check out the downstairs and upstairs for a more loungey setting. Also, hats off the the sommelier!
  • Curl Up and Rye
  • Try the sugar pie. You won't be disappointed!
  • Dramatic ceiling (there's something disconcerting about sitting underneath so many bottles hanging over your head); very knowledgeable and helpful waitstaff; portion size is perfect
  • Eat @ the bar. Friendly bartenders!
  • Have the scallops. They also have wine from Golan heights
  • Huge wine list; the food is pretty good, too
  • Pollenta fries, wine pairings
  • Holy cow this meal was incredible! Burrata and polenta fries were out of this world! Best I've ever had! Carbonara was very good. Local fish was over salted. Service was impeccable.
  • Reminds me of a gossip girl style restaurant, posh and pretty. Definitely try the duck and the chocolate bar!
