A great place with lots of options for everyone. For the serious diner, a great menu with decent wine list. For a casual drink, a great bar--2 of them. For music, Thursday night jazz. Some locavore items.

The cocktail list is hard to beat, anywhere. The atmosphere is very "speak-easy," no table cloths, no drop ceilings. Very easy going. The food is the American equivalent of a bistro: no-nonsense, somewhat retro choices (deviled eggs), nicely prepared and presented.

Tucked at the top of a steep staircase just feet from the Iowa Territories Capitol building is a charming eatery I can't wait to return to. Catering to a slightly older-than-undergrads crowd, it is a perfect establishment for date night or a or couples outing....More

kitchen randomly closes early, but food is good. Beer selection is ok. It really is all about the craft cocktails here, they take a lot of pride in making them as they should be made or creating new ones
