    Surprisingly nice ambiance for a River North restaurant--muted, warm, and down to earth. Also a surprisingly varied menu. We had lots of tapas--rolls, carrots, asparagus/avocado toast, crab fried rice, lamb aroyas, grilled oysters, corn, bib salad and rigatoni carbonara. Everything was great (the crab fried rice didn't really inspire. It needed a bit more flavor and was kind of clumpy.) Portion sizes were more substantial than I envisioned. There was a long shelf to sit at outdoors, which would be fun if you weren't in a larger group. Definitely a keeper.

    Great service, food and wine. Our server recognized we were catching up for a while before looking at the menu and he didn’t rush us at all.

    Great views of the river while enjoying a cocktail before dinner. Very creative and tasty dishes which worked great for a group of women! Will return!

    The food was incredible and the view of the river is gorgeous! Some of the best food I’ve had in the city. Perfect for date night or a relaxed dinner after sightseeing.
