Anisa's Take

Food Rating: 7

We ate the sausage pizza. It was delicious, but it fell apart easily and all the topping slid off.

Service Rating: 10

In addition to being attentive (but not too attentive), the waiter offered us a complimentary taste of their IPA (we didn’t ask for this), and someone else came over to pour the remainder of Rory’s beer into his glass.

Fun Factor: 7

We went early in the evening, around 7, so it was really quiet. We also chose to sit inside, but the outdoor seating was much more lively. For a laid-back place, it’s still really trendy and nice-looking inside. Definitely not a dive bar. Exposed brick, a vertical garden, soccer on TV—all elements that make for a good atmosphere. This is a great place if you want a nice meal out but don’t want anything too over the top.

Rory's Take

Food Rating: 6

We shared a pizza that was excellent, but it wasn’t cooked all the way through. Some parts were spotty. The toppings were great though.

Service Rating: 10

They were quick to refill water, and when the beer (in a bottle, but poured into a glass) was running low, they were quick to fill the rest of the glass up too.

Fun Factor: 7

The ambience was multi-faceted in a way that elicited unique conversation. Also, we chose to sit indoors, but the outdoor seating was incredibly appealing as well.
