Very Good - 4 out of 5

Susannah, Columbia Fri, 2 June 2017

I'd recommend this. We went on a Thursday night around 6:30 and it was not very crowded, though more arrived by the time we left. It's a large room and the window was opened beside us to the summer weather and the street scene. I wouldn't say it had much atmosphere and probably wouldn't go there for an intimate date. It would be fun for a casual evening or a group. Creative menu, lots of options. We loved the amber ale called Eliot Ness - tastes a lot like the defunct Raison D'Etre that Dogfish Head Ale used to make.

Liked: Really nice menu with a wide range of options. There was an amazing Peruvian-inspired dish with ramps, rice, sausage, and tomatoes.
Disliked: Not very generous amount of wine.

l This food was just okay. Tacos definitely rank in bottom 50% of tacos I have had. If they were 20 percent less expensive, price would have been fairish. The servers were overwhelmed and slow.
