  • Nicest bathroom I've been to in a while
  • David Oliver, bar manager and resident mixologist, shares his recipe for the Merk's Fresh Basil Gimlet in this week's Reader.
  • Aaron brings all the hot chicks.
  • The petite filet is off the chart! And the lobster bisque is the best I've ever had.
  • You've GOT to check out their new Brunch menu. $10.00 bottomless Mimosa's are off the charts. Got to try out their Juevos Rancheros. AWESOME
  • The lasagna is amazing! :) I'd take a picture, but I ate it haha :) also try the 2007, Ca' Di Pian red; delish!
  • The Merk is amazing!!
  • The happy hour from 5-8 everyday is amazing.
  • Chocolate pig! come check it out
  • Ask about our dessert Pizza or Wine specials for the month. Both great secrets we want you to know!!!
  • Sweet looking bar. Good dinner prices for downtown.
  • David the Bar Manager can make any drink and knows everything about wine!
  • If you're here for breakfast, I really recommend the lemon french toast. Might want to get some bacon on the side to help balance the sweet though. Good coffee, too.
  • La comida muy buena, la hostess, ms!
  • Amazing bathrooms, amazing food, and really awesome staff.
  • This place seems like it's trying too hard. I had an "okay" lunch here, but considering how much they're promoting "Michelin star Chef Gordon Ramsay" as a consultant, I'd expect better quality.
  • Finally a place that does not ruin my day with shitty eggs benedict. The eggs were cooked to perfection.
  • Try the corn fritters and chicken sriacha pizza for appetizers. Excellent host and server as well!
