Steak was almost completely raw. Salmon was over cooked. Staff was rude and unwelcoming. Too expensive for ordering at the bar and not tableservice

Enjoyable atmosphere. Price maybe a little bit high for what we got but still nice food and good service.
Rooftop bar is awesome.

Outstanding service especially for a bistro. Food was amazing.
The outside design (the island lit up in red) is tacky looking and makes it look like a dag, but inside is completely opposite experience to what it looks like externally

The manager provided lovely and humorous service. Food was delicious with reasonable portions for a reasonable price. Was full after the chicken salad with was $15.50. Extensive wine list with price ranges from $-$$$. Fantastic overall
