We went on a Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately we missed brunch but we had a great time!! I loved our waitress Alex. She’s amazing and knows her stuff!

We ordered the meat board and the cheese board. The charcuterie board does not include both meat and cheese so you’ll need to buy the separate boards. The meat and cheeses provided were tasty!

Also ordered the soy chicken bites 9/10 ! They are good but they kept coming out kinda cold.

Last we had the grilled cheese sandwich. Some folks liked it, others like myself could pass on it. There is a sweetness to the grilled cheese and that’s not what I had in mind when I ordered it. I wanted the simple savory grilled cheese not something sweet. The sweetness came from the sweet tomato sauce/ jam used on sandwich.

We ordered two bottles of cava which was very good!

Great experience, it was very enjoyable. We thought most of the items we ordered were perfect. Several food items fell a bit short of expectation in terms of taste.

Wine was decent, food was fine, we were outside on a Friday night so it was unexpectedly loud due to a preplanned outdoor concert until 9pm, probably our fault for not realizing that would be going on... I do not plan to return, but i'd tell other people to give this spot a try with managed expectations.

Although nice for a tasting experience, the food left something to be desired, and the staff was inattentive. The kale salad consisted of shredded kale with light dressing, one apple slice, and a few chickpeas. The grilled cheese was mostly bread with only light tomato sauce and a sparse sprinkle of shredded cheese. The wines were nice but alone did not justify a return visit.

Lackluster service. Curt hostess, and MIA server who didn’t give any sort of help with suggestions or check if we liked the wine or food. The wine tasted water-y and the food was really really excessively sweet. The sprouts were sitting in a pool of honey glaze at the bottom, the wings were like the nugget type with no bone (possibly frozen?), the burrata toasts were fine, so I’ll give them that. The venue is nice and nobody was straight up rude, it just feels like a bit of a lack of effort. The whole time I was wishing I was somewhere else.

My first time here and will not be the last. We ordered from the “shared” portion of the menu and I’m pleased because not only did I get full, but I was able to eat healthy (therefore less guilt!). We ordered the Kale salad, shrimp salad, glazed chicken bites and salmon. Everything was very good!
