I experienced TWO for the first time this weekend and it definitely lived up to my expectations. Not only is the food unbelievable but the environment is so trendy and unique. Loved everything about it!

Wow, If you have an open mind and just want to enjoy everything, this is the place to go. The food was amazing. I took the writes up on this sites advise and arrive earily for the reservations. My wife and I were actually seated earily. I fugures this would be a great way of remembering our 21 Aniversury. We left the wine and food up to the waiter. WOw. We had salmon chips, watermelon and tomatoe salad and the most amazing steak I have every had. The service and food would rival any four star establishment in Atlanta. The deserts still needed some work.

Warning: If your up tight, have a corn cob up your a$$ and don't want a great environment, then you might not like it here. Ignore the outside appearance.

Take a chance and see> My wife loved it and boy am I glad. hehehe

Your wont regret it. and the price is amazing for the high standard the place on their food.

A warehouse made cozy with pillows in most tables and booths. The restaurant is very high energy on the weekends with great food and live jazz music Tuesday through Saturday. The food is so unique and delicious. Odd and unfamiliar ingredients are paired together and come out tasting delicious, some ingredients from the chefs garden out back. There may be a lot of negative reviews but I believe that is because this restaurant is not for everyone. If you want something quiet and serene try coming earlier in the night and avoid Friday and Saturday. This place is great to bring out-of-towners or business friends. The old telephone factory warehouse turned restaurant has fabric chandaliers and a large Todd Murphy painting that make up the funky and eclectic interior. There is a courtyard with a retractable roof with trees in the center, along with a great patio that comes with a view of the city skyline. Feel free to walk in and grab a table or sit at the chef's counter or cocktail tables in the bar area. Reservations can be made at OpenTable and make getting in the door on some nights much smoother. Drinks are great here! Infusions hang above the bar made from different liquors and fresh fruit, or try some of the 42 different keg wines. This may be one of the few places you can order a PBR or a wonderful bottle of wine from the reserve list.

Went to TWO (as those in the know call it) for the um-teenth time and realized I needed to tell the world how great a place it is. I started going when Scott Serpas was the chef and fell in love with the scallops & gouda grits, as well as EVERYTHING else on the menu. Now that Cameron Thompson is the chef and his food stands the test, it's so bold!

Our server, Doug, was totally attentive and antipcipated our needs...like re-filling my wine glass quickly! My fiance ordered the duck, It's stuffed with Italian sausage. We're of the mind that pork fat make everything better. I got the beef ribs, there special for the night. I've never even seen beef ribs on a menu that's not a BBQ joint, they rocked! The chef served them with a home made potato salad and it had a succulent thyme-honey glaze.

The place was hopping & everyone was all smiles. The live band seemed to catch the attitude of the staff and they were kicking!

Everyone needs to experience TWO. The food, atmosphere and staff are all stellar!!!

Cons: what cons?

I made a reservation and still ended up waiting over an hour to be seated. I was extremely frustrated, however once my party was seated, we had a great time. Our server was awesome and the food was delicious!!! One of my favorite restaurants excluding the wait time!

Well I visited this place for a birthyday dinner and was very excited to see what it was like. The ambiance was nice and the band was alright, but that's where the compliment end. We had 9:00 reservations, did not get seated until 10:17. I understand b/c I use to manage a restuarant so I know things can happen so we all looked past it. After we were finally seated we ordered apps. and drinks, I had the salmon chips they were decent, they were fully loaded w/ salmon so that was a good thing, I ordered the skirt steak for dinner and was told by the server it was his favorite on the menu and highly recommended, it was disgusting, there was a green sauce spread over it which I was told was just garlic, olive oil, and parsley for the color, I don't know how many people he told that to, but I know food and seasoning and sauces, and that's not what it was. I normally don't send food back, but in this case there was no other choice, we had a party of 20 and atleast 10 sent their food back. Later I heard the our server telling another person that a different dish was his favorite and highly recommended, I guess that's just a part of his greeting. After sending my food back, I got the Shrimp taco's instead, and they were very good. If you're looking for a place with a nice, romantic ambiance, and only planning on drinking then this is the place for you, but if you're looking for somewhere to have a nice romantic dinner DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE!!!!!!

I visited this place with my sister while staying in Atlanta for a few days. We were dissappointed when we arrived within 30 minutes (after calling to make a reservation and told we would be seated right away) only to be told that the wait was about 1.5hrs ?? We were about to walk out, but informed them we would not have come if they were honest about the wait time and lo and behold!! We were seated immediately!! Other than the seemingly unorganized seating accommodations that started things off on a bad note, I had a pleasant time. I ordered the steak with mac and cheese. The mac & cheese was great, but I did not enjoy the steak. It came with a dark sauce that had a strange after taste. Our server was great and I thought she was very friendly and informative. A pleasant environment and the live blues band was enjoyable too for a late Friday evening.

Pros: Great atmosphere, live blues band, pleasant outside seating

Cons: Seemed a little unorganized, only 3 facilities for the womens rooms

WOW! Had the opportunity to discover this place on a trip to Atlanta from MN. I had the American shrimp (and shared several appetizers and desserts with friends). Great southern and european style cuisine in a trendy, but casual atmosphere. Amazing view of the downtown skyline, great service, and an overall positive experience. The menu is printed daily...so next time I'm down in Atlanta...2 Urban Licks will be a dinner stop for me! Go here...you will not be disappointed!

The decor is beautiful. It has a beautiful view of the city as well. However, the food was mediocre at best. It was disappointing. I don't mind spending a lot for dinner, but I expect it to be good when I do. Also, the hostess tried to lie and act like we weren't going to get a seat based on not having a reservation, but another guy came right up and gave us a pretty good seat. It's more hype than delicious.

Two. urban licks is yet another example of a decent restaurant that generates the buzz of a great restaurant. Buzz is no substitute for quality, though. The inattention to details is what keeps it from being great--take their bread for instance. Do they think that they can make store-bought bread taste homemade simply by heating it in their giant spaceship warmer thingie and then slathering it with some kinda garlic butter stuff you could get at Ryan's steakhouse? Again, consider the mussel appetizers. They give you a lot, but fail to remove the "beard" before cooking. Pay attention to details. Nobody likes to eat beards in their seafood. There was nothing about the food here that set it apart from Applebees. I find it hard to believe that they actually have a chef over-seeing the work of the minimum wage employees they so proudly display for the world to see.

Pros: It's big.

My husband and I love Two. We have been there at least half a dozen times, and each and every experience has been wonderful. The people are fantastic, and the food is always delicious! We've taken large parties of people and just a few, and regardless, we always have the very best service. Its one of our favorite places to dine.

Ive been here several times for birthday dinners or just to have a drink at the bar. The venue is large a great for groups as well as dates. I like the fact that the kitchen is open so you can see your food prepared. I love the Salmon chip appetizer it is delicious!!! Great place to see and be seen!

A 9:00 dinner reservation is a suggestion. At 9:20 when you are told their are 3 tables ahead of you, you have a right to be upset, not to say hungry. The food might have been good but I can not comment on it since I left. Loud, Crowded and unorganized. The GM followed me outside to make every attempt to get me back inside. Even offered to comp a meal at a later date. We said no and immediately went to Re'past. I suggest you do the same, unless you enjoy crowded and pretentious. I, for one, would much rather spend my money and time more wisely.

My girlfriend and I ate at two urban licks a few weeks ago and it was one of the best dining experiences either of us had ever had. We showed up with no reservations and were seated at a great table rather quickly. The service was excellent, and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about every menu item we were interested in. The food and presentation was great, probably one of the best meals I've had. I ordered the pork and my date ordered the scallops. The braised pork was so tender i literally had to scoop it onto the fork because it was falling apart! Her scallops were HUGE and also very tender with amazing seasoning. Calamari appetizer was big enough for two and also amazing! I'd recommend two urban licks to anyone. Great atmosphere and location also. Very trendy and romantic.

Didnt like too much. too loud, food was okay at best. Went on a date there felt like we were sitting in the middle of a crosswalk between the servers moving in and out of the kitchen and people walking by. Dont see the allure of this place. And parking was bad.

Pros: too trendy for my tastes... but if you like those creative combinations

Cons: parking and restaurant interior noise levels.

I took my parents visiting from out of town to TWO recently, and they absolutely loved it. The food, atmosphere and service were all fantastic. They really enjoyed the skyline view and the entire concept of an old warehouse-turn restaurant. The live music was awesome, and the salmon chips were (as always) to die for. TWO is such a unique restaurant, and a great place to show guests Atlanta's growing dining scene!

.

Atmosphere: Very cool looking, large warehouse-style dining room. It was loud, but not so loud we couldn't talk. Once the music started (around 8:30ih) it got more difficult to talk. Didn't think tables were too close together as others have said. At One Midtown Kit, could hardly fit myself between the tables to get to seat. Not the case here.

Food & Service: Arrived right at our reservation time (7:30) and seated immediately. Waitress was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive enough. Like wine system - reasonably priced without need to guess how much you want ahead of time. Same price per ounce no matter size. Started w/lamb lollipops. Very good. DH had ribeye steak ($36). Good flavor, but very fatty cut of meat. No steak knife provided. Cheddar potatoes were great. I had scallops and grits despite negative reviews. Scallops were spicy and good. Grits were flavorful and not runny. But very small portion for $20. Only 3 scallops (~1.5 in. diam). Bread didn't arrive until after entrees. Waitress said they were running slow on bread and short on glasses.

Parking: When we got there, had to wade through crowd of people waiting for their cars. When we left (9:15ish) waited 45 min. for our car, others had been there longer. Horrible gridlock of incoming and departing cars. HOWEVER: The valet manager called me the following Mon. (using the phone no. under which I made reservation) to apologize for the valet situation. He said that was the first time it had happened, they solved the problem, and it won't happen again. Wow - a phone call! THAT'S customer service! This takes my rating from 3 to 4 stars, assuming the parking issue was really a one-time thing.

Overall, glad we tried it. Might go back, especially for drinks or appetizers.

I am planning a birthday get together and decided to head to the restaurant a couple weeks ahead of time to check it out. I have never been here before. I liked the covered valet parking and we were able to find a seat at the bar promptly while we waited for our table. I had a glass of wine and my friend and I shared the fried oysters and the lamb lollipops which were both outstanding, We were seated promptly and ordered the braised pork and mack and cheese and the shrimp with spinach and rice. The pork was tender and the the shrimp were very fresh. I loved the atmostphere and found the restaurant staff to be a bit aloof but out waiter was good, Overall I loved the reataurant even though it was crowded and noisy on a weeknight. I can't wait until the next visit!!

This is my favorite restuarnt in the city. The food, drinks and ambiance is great! I take every friend from out of town here either during the week or the weekends. Try to get a table near the outside patio so you can see the skyline and the fire pit. The live music is nice, but is a little too loud if you sit near it. The calamari and salmon chips are a must have every time. You will not be disappointed.

This place is amazing - the food is fantastic, service is gracious and friendly, ambiance is modern and fun. Absolutely one of the BEST in this city. Recommended dishes to order: flash fried oysters (I don't have a penchant for oysters, but these were super fresh and tender, amazing flavor - the creole sauce really gives it a good kick). We also ordered the "stack" (fried green tomatoes), and my date maintains that these were the best fried green tomatoes he's ever had. For entrees, we ordered the duck, recommended by our awesome server, and he was RIGHT - it was perfectly cooked, tender, amazing flavor. We also ordered the seared tuna, which was good, but not amazing like the duck. Next time I'd love to try the other seafood dishes. Unfortunately, we were too stuffed to try dessert, but everything looks amazing. If you're in Atlanta, you MUST TRY this place! It's unique, delicious, and Scott Serpas is a culinary genius. Only drawback? The restaurant is slightly hidden.

We kicked off one of my gal pal's bachelorette extravaganza's at Two Urban Licks and what a great place to start. The atmosphere here is open and fun. They had delicious drinks and such a unique menu. A great place for a birthday dinner, or even just if you're looking for somewhere new to try. The staff was also knowledgeable and attentive. A wonderful venue all around.

The atmosphere was nice and unique. However, their hostess and the way they managed their reservation were horrible. I had a party of 8 with me and had a reservation at 10p.m. for a birthday dinner. Forty minutes of waiting their hostess tells us our table was almost available. Finally, it took them 1hr and 15 minutes to set us. Their staff are so unorganized.

First time there I had a lot of trouble finding the place. It is hidden in the back, you have to drive past a bunch of warehouse looking places to get there. The food and service were great though. The menu is divided into 4 sections, appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, and desserts. Our waitress(es) were very attentive. The bread there is amazing also, not like other restaurants with plain bread with olive oil, the bread at Two Urban Licks has garlic instead. My entree, the tuna, was also very good. This a dark, nice romantic hotspot for couples or even small groups of friends.

First time there I had a lot of trouble finding the place. It is hidden in the back, you have to drive past a bunch of warehouse looking places to get there. The food and service were great though. The menu is divided into 4 sections, appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, and desserts. Our waitress(es) were very attentive.

Pros: food, service

Cons: location, the darkness

We visited this restaurant Saturday November 7th. My husband and I had never been but brought friends who have been many times and couldn't wait to go again. We started with the calamari, shrimp taco and the tuna tatar. All were great but by far the calamari was the best. Next we had the prime rib (more like a half a cow), large portions that melted in your mouth. My friend was also raving about the macorini and cheese and I thought well ok, it was one of the best I have every had. We also had the pork and scallops. Again thought the pork was the best we have ever tasted. The scallops were also good but I had one that wasn't cooked enough. The restraurant is very dark and couldn't tell the scallop wasn't cooked till I put it in my mouth.

The wine, well there could be some improvement there. As well the cocktails were on the watery side.

Great place for really interesting food . Give it a try well worth it.

The interior is beautiful. The Salmon Chips are the signature item and are extraordinary. I usually sit at the bar, but find that the bartenders would rather talk amongst themselves. Being in the Industry, I find it to be counterproductive. Even after multiple visits it did not improve. The food is very good but there are plenty of choices in Atlanta.

Saturday night i took my husband out for his B-day as a suprise &wow he was really suprised. The waiter was honest on selections ,the food was great ,we had the Oysters and grits. For his b-day they gave him a birthday card and dessert was on them,the staff all signed his card and the chef wrote Happy b-day on his plate with some type of chocalate syrup. I loved the whole dim lighting with candlies the band was really cool. Mixed crowd of all ages and so forth. I would go again. It was a different experience. The fried calamari is great as well. Valet parking is sort of slow. need more guys to valet park. The guys did not open the door for me ,my hubby still tiped the valet guys.

This restaurant looks much better at night. We arrived when it was still light outside, and the place looked and felt like a cafeteria. The floor is black and looks wet and dirty when the light from the windows hits it. As it gets darker, the indoor lighting softens the ambience.

This restaurant needs some white noise. With all the hard surfaces, it is very loud; and to make matters worse, some of the tables are very close to one another. Therefore, when I spoke loud enough for my friend to hear me across the table, the people sitting at the table next to us looked at me.

The food was not memorable. My friend had the scallops and was still hungry afterwards. I had the duck and wished I hadn't. The dessert was not very tasty. I had something chocolate. I don't know what the hell it was. My friend had the cupcakes dessert, which consists of about 4 cupcakes. I don't quite understand that dessert. When is it ever okay to eat a bunch of cupcakes?

The wait staff could have been better dressed. T-shirts and pants/jeans is tacky. The wait staff looks like the cleaning staff. It's totally believable that the same people waiting tables also wash dishes and mop floors in the back.

Overall, my experience at Two Urban Licks was disappointing. I didn't feel relaxed: It was far too loud, and the seating was not very comfortable. I didn't feel like I was really dining: The wait staff looked tacky, the place looked and felt like a cafeteria, and I coudn't enjoy my conversation because I couldn't speak freely - we couldn't hear each other and when we could, so could the people at the next table. The next time my friend and I met for dinner (two weeks later), we could not remember the last place we had dined, which was here.

We had the BEST meal! Everything we ordered was fabulous from the Tamale appetizer to the pork shoulder with mac & cheese for an entree. The waitress was great and gave my sister cupcakes and ice cream for free for her birthday. I would definitely recommend and will definitely go back!!

This is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta! Perfect for a girls night out or couples- either way, you will not be disappointed! Wonderful food, great service, beautiful skyline view of the city, and such a gorgeous building/design concept with an urban edge. My last visit was this past Friday and the entire experience was incredible. Be sure to try the scallops and tuna tartare- both are amazing and the prices are very reasonable! The bar is also great because of the live music and ambience- nice spot to begin a night out even if you don't want to eat dinner! Using the valet service is easier here, but there are places to self park if you don't mind a very short walk to the entrance. Enjoy!!!

Wow,
Talk about a restaurant trying to be something it?s not. Let me tell you, just because it?s extremely difficult to find does not make it exclusive. Once you find it you are hijacked for your car by the Valet. NO OPTION. You can park about 400 yards away on the street. That is low class to not offer an option to self-park anywhere near the restaurant. I don?t care if they claim the valet is complementary. It?s not payment of the service, it?s the b.s. of the service itself. Just let me park my own car.
I also hoped you enjoyed the conversation you had while you were circling the block trying to find it because once you?re inside you won?t be able to hear the person across the table from you. The concrete warehouse has little to no sound dampening. Oh they did clear coat some 4x8 sheets of OSB and hung an entire wall with them?.yikes. If anyone can tell me what the ugly red mushroom light pod things are about please let me know. All I know is it?s ugly. I see many people here like it and its rated pretty high?.I guess many people are still drinking the cool-aid. Good luck.

My husband and I took advantage of date night to go to a 'cool' restaurant for dinner. Weekday night, so it wasn't crowded and there wasn't music, but it was still very loud. I chose to sit at the chef's table, which was quite fun as you can watch the chefs prepare yours and everyone else's dinner. I loved the concept of the kegged wine and the list is extensive. The menu was very seafood heavy which I wasn't expecting. I ended up just getting the Rocket salad which was great, and the ahi tun app which was just ok. My husband got the pork which was a bit dry and just not very good. So we weren't impressed with the food, but had a good time overall. We wouldnt' go back just ourselves, but thought it would be a great place to meet friends for a birthday party or something.

My friend and I had a great experience on a Friday night at this restaurant. The valet parking was fast and easy. Once inside we were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was helpful with answers as to how the food was prepared, ingredients used and seemed earnest when he said he had not personally tasted a couple of the dishes we asked about. The food was very good as well. I will certainly go back to Two Urban Licks again and again.

I love this place--from the huge fire oven and cushioned booths to the great food and great drinks. My first visit was fun and exciting. I ordered appetizer, drink, entree and dessert and ALL of it was good. My next visit would not be until almost a year later and BAM!!! They did it again..Smoked Salmon Chips rocks....Grouper...rocks...we didn't have a reservation and sat at the bar--great atmosphere and it was cool talking to the kitchen staff and watching them prepare the dishes. Definitely a keeper in my book!!!

We had heard a lot about Two Urban Licks prior to coming. Rough start with the valet- it was raining and they were motioning to have cars pull up away from the covered entrance and have people get out INTO the rain to hand over their cars. The valet saw the look on my face and yelled at me, "IT'S NOT SO BAD". I made no reply and he continued to mutter expletitves under his breath. Upon entering the restaurant, we decided to sit at the bar- full menu, and there was a long wait for a table (10:15pm Sat night, no reservations). We were very impressed with the food- great flavors, nice presentation, eclectic mix. The live blues set playing was also great- played a mixture of traditional and original songs. The service was mixed- one of the bartenders would take part of our order and then run off quickly to put it in before we had finished ordering. We also got the wrong salad. Upon leaving, our car was returned to us (the angry valet was no longer there) but then we noticed later that there as a scratch on the glove compartment that had not been there before. We enjoyed the ambience and food, but the bad experience with the valet was enough to make me never want to go back.

I had my B day dinner here and it was great. This is a high energy place, so its a bit loud, but it works. Its not a romantic quiet place, but there are plenty of other places for that. The food is great, I recommend the tuna tar tar, salmon chips, and calamari. Really good! Its really great for a party or large group, has a good social scene. Try it.

A coworker recommended this place because of the cupcakes. The cakes were good, the red velvet cake could have been a little more moist but it was good. The food was wonderful. I enjoyed my food so much. The Flash Fried oysters are to die for. The place is just beautiful and this would be an impressive first date place.

We went with a couple of friends recently who swear by this place. It was a busy Saturday night, but we were seated immediately. The atmosphere is neat...very trendy Atlanta vibe. The only drawback is that the noise level is seriously loud, and it is really hard to have a conversation without screaming. The lamb lollipops were great, as was the fried green tomato stack, although the stack isn't good for sharing. The duck was fantastic!! We ordered cupcakes for dessert, and while I'm not a big fan of cupcakes, I'll admit that these were tasty. I'd definitely go back, but I have to say that for the $$ and overall experience, I'm still a Rathbun's girl.

This place is incredible. Loved the food and the ambiance! There is no other place like this in town. Renovated spaces are always a cool vibe, but this places takes it to another level. And the food was everything my friends said it would be. My husband and I took another couple out for a long-overdue dinner, and had the best time. The food was a neat spin on Southern and Creole, two of my fav's. We all tried each dish and loved each of them. Save room for dessert! Check out the website like we did, so you can get a great visual of how rare a find is like this in the Atlanta scene. We eat out pretty regularly and will definately be back to this one!!!

I had heard about this trendy restaurant was excited to finally dine there. The place it's self was different and nicely decorated. The staff was very firendly. I was able to make a reservation online. I ogt there about 15 minutes before the reservation and was able to get seated immediately. The food was not impressive at all. It was extremely overpriced and bland. I had the fried crab appetizer and a bowl of seafood gumbo as an appetizer, the shrimp w/ mashed sweet potatoes and greeen as an entree. The Gumbo tasted more like a vegetable soup and the crab appetizer were evry soft and bland. The Shrimp by theselevs were good though. I am not sure if I would ever go back to dine there maybe try other different entrees. If so hopefully I won't be disappointed again

This place was noisy. The gay pride parade took place the weekend my girlfriend and I decided to visit this restaurant, so the place was PACKED and very loud. From reading other reviews it seems that this is a common trait of the restaurant. Our waitress was okay. She had an attitude big time, as if she were stressed out or having a bad day, or possibly that is just who she is. The funny thing about that it even though she had a bad attitude she was very prompt. The space is nice, but the crowd takes up most of it. This makes it hard to enjoy your surroundings. I did like the open space to left when you first walk in, that was pretty cool, which let in a lot of natural light. The food wasn't special. The lamp lollipops were okay, but I didn't think they would use those annoying popsicle sticks. I hate those things! My girlfriend had the scallops which is always a bad idea at a restaurant unless this is their specialty. For I believe 20$ my girlfriend got three scallops that look like they were annorexic in their sea life. I had the skirt steak with potatoes, nothing special here. This place is probably a cool hang out place, but don't waste your money. The food wasn't bad it just wasn't worth the crowd. I would say try it once, and don't go back. The desserts were okay, they had a cupcake dessert, which I thought was pretty interesting, and this pistachio ice cream dessert that was pretty good, but I am a slave for sweets so anything that is sweet is good to me. As I said here before, go once and then don't go back.

Atlanta is known for it's loud, splashy, sometime's restaurant scene. But sometime's just a scene, becomes boring, and we want good food. Yes we love to schmooze with our friends, have drinks, but we like to enjoy our meal also. Two Urban Licks has high energy, no rules, and nothing really serious for a great dining destination. It's a great place to start the evening out with drinks, as this place comes off more as an oversized bar, than a great dining destination. We never could become comfortable trying to have dinner, it was so loud and noisy, we thought we were at Phillips Arena. We really didn't remember if the food was good or not, we just wanted out. If you just want to be in the middle of a loud scene, don't really care about the cuisine, come here.

The food is good, but I just sat staring at my husband all night. Some might consider that romantic, but it was because it was too loud to talk. Oh, well who needs to talk when you've got good food in your mouth. A place to see and be seen, so don't drive the broken down chevy.

Myself and my best friend met for dinner at this hip, very urban restaurant. Upon arriving for our 6:00 reservation, we were seated after a short wait. Being that I am pregnant, the seats that we were originally directed to were far to uncomfortable. When I requested being seated at a booth I was told that they are reserved for parties of three or more. After a little quarrel between the hostess and the manager, we were finally seated at a booth. Once able to order, I initially ordered the crab claws as an appetizer which I sent back because the sauce was overpowering. I then ordered the Lamb Lollipops which were excellent. For my entree, I dined on the Bronzed Scallops with Gouda Grits. This as well was excellent. The waiter who was not very tentative saw to us three times in an hour period. I would recommend based on the wide selection of tasty entrees but not the service.

I'll be honest, I'm usually not one for the "fusion" foods. I like good, basic food, but this place really surprised me. Everything was extremely different, but delicious. Just what I needed.

I love the atmosphere, the appetizers, the main entree and the desserts. Three of us went out for a birthday, I wasn't paying, so I thought what the hay. We sampled different assortments. Everything was superb. I ate so much! Drinks were great. I can't recommend it enough. I always recommend this place to anyone coming from out of town.

It's a little hard to find. If my friends hadn't been driving I never would have found it.

It's a little hard to find. If my friends hadn't been driving I never would have found it.

Pros: different food combinations!

Cons: a little strange location, tucked back into this place,

.

The journey there was a part of the overall experience. Our driver had the right address but none of us saw it the first time we drove by. Please, don't get me wrong, this journey was apositive one and added to the uniqueness of this venue and provide a little mystery behind what the dinner experience was about to be. Once arriving at the door, it became clear that it was worth the trip and the atmosphere was both warm and welcoming. We were sat promptly and were please with the seats reserved for us. The waiter was very knowledgable about the restaurant, wine list and menu. We took his suggestions on several things and were pleased with it all !! My dining companion confirmed what I was thinking and that was we have got to tell more people about this place. The food was great and the service matched it. We went on a Sunday Night and it was packed so they must be pleasing more folks than just us. We will go back for sure !!!

I have eaten here two times so far and both times I really enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. When you arrive you do not have to worry about driving around trying to find a parking spot because they valet park your car for you for FREE!! The valet guys usually open the car door for females and welcome you to the restaurant. When you go inside, the music is playing and the lighting is set low as to create a dramatic mood.

The menu changes daily at this place and food items are usually creative dishes! I recommend the herb skirt steak with mushrooms and the shrimp and eggplant dish if they have it on the menu that night.

This is a great place to go with a group of friends or on a date. It has that NYC vibe: contemporary, chic and upscale!
It does get crowded on Friday and Saturday nights so always make reservations and go early!

My friends and I went here a year ago, and both the food and service were great. I was eager to go back, but when I did, it was completely different... the service was awful, and the food quality had gone way downhill (although the lamb lollipops were still great). I hope it was just a fluke!

Even with a reservation, we had to wait quite a while for a table. It was worth the wait. The food was fantastic and we got several complimentary appetizers for waiting so long. Try the lamb lollipops - they are heavenly!
