Everyone is talking about the drinks but the food is really good. Â I had the gnocchi and my wife had the bourbon chicken. Â The gnocchi were so tender and the sauce they were in was light and went well with them. Â The bourbon chicken was nicely done and full of flavor. Â Also had apps of pickles and the eggs and each was very good. Â We were stuffed so we didn't have the chance to try any of the desserts. Â We dropped in on a whim and so we were too early for the sing-a-longs. Â Someone was showing up and looked like they would be playing the piano.
The sound level was nice. Â You could have a conversation and be quiet -- very romantic..... Â The waitress was very good at describing everything and overall the service was excellent.. Â She didn't come over unless she saw a plate or glass empty.
This is probably the coolest atmosphere of any restaurant I've ever visited. Â As the name suggests, the decor mimics a speakeasy. Â There's no knob or hardware on the door, you just push it open. Â Then there's a black curtain you pull to the side and step into the restaurant which is like a step back in time to the 20s during prohibition. Â There are candles everywhere, in fact it's quite dark. Â An old player piano is in the corner, your menu arrives between the covers of an old book - no detail is overlooked. Â Everything was so fabulous that I don't know where to start. Â I began with a cocktail - burlesque berry - which was delicious! Â The drinks are pricey, but they are made with all fresh squeezed juices and purees. Â App was chickpea popcorn with herb salt which was outstanding! Â My entree was citrus and herb encrusted mahi mahi - a very large portion with fingerling potatoes and matchstick veggies. Â It was perfection. Â I did not have room for dessert but the server suggested Terrence, the bartender, could make me an after dinner drink that i would enjoy - that he did! Â He made a wonderful brandy alexander-ish drink which when I sipped it reminded me of sitting in a ski lodge in front of a warm fire. Â It was really wonderful - again pricey, but you know what, it was worth it! Â This is not just a restaurant, it's an experience! Â Extremely romantic, which was too bad for me as I was with a friend instead of a handsome man. Â Otherwise, nothing could have made this experience better!!Review Source:
