Wonderful desserts, especially the sticky toffee pudding, and tasty burgers. We enjoyed the original piano man and the service was excellent.

it seemed a fun place with lots of guests enjoying earnest conversation and some applied drinking! The wine list was good and a great place to have a night cap. Did not try food.

Recommended by the letterman staff while you wait...there are alot more friendly places. Waited forever for a drink, Way overpriced, not exactly freindly, not exactly clean. (I know it's a bar, but could you sweep the floor!)

Popped in for lunch. Sat at the bar as a walkin. The duck risotto was recommended by the bartender as was a glass of their sav blanc. Wonderful and comfortable. Will go back.
