Seems like a place the locals go to. Poblano soup was my favorite. Just enough heat. Everything else was great, but seating was a little odd and uncomfortable.

A striking space, pleasant service and very well crafted dishes make for a nice evening. Huge ceilings and cool music add to a great atmosphere. Portions are not huge which is refreshing and appreciated.

I walked into this restaurant looking forward to an incredible meal. There was good music, cool exposed brick walls and a great vibe. I had a really good cocktail, but when the food came it was just ok

We loved the atmosphere. It's an old building. We sat upstairs. Service was great. Prices can be high. We tried the Byrd sandwich, Steak sandwich and steak salad. Food was fine, but a little messy and not the most original. Drinks can be pricey too.

Cool atmosphere, good food, good service, good drinks. Very busy place. I do recommend reservations. Hamburger is excellent. Everyone in our group of 6 recommended their dishes (I can't remember what everyone had).
