Probably a 4.5.
We were given a gift certificate for her and randomly went on a weekend around 1... we were pleasantly surprised by the brunch menu and flavors, as well as the nice decor and feel of the restaurant.
Pleasant staff and yummy food/drinks.
Not an amazing location but a nice restaurant.
We will return to try dinner.
We came across this place randomly and kept going back at least once a month.
How shall I start? I can start telling you about the beer selection, tap and bottled, or their good wine selection but that only goes so far.
I will continue and mention their superb new American (fusion-ish) dishes. While the price is not cheap, it is worth what you get for your money. Everything is fresh, often grown locally and cooked to perfection. I believe if you went to a "fancier" restaurant you will end up paying double and getting half the value.
If you can't make up your mind about the menu, the market fish (daily) is good and I also like the sliders.
They have seasonal dishes and specials (loved the duck+rabbit one, hope it comes back again). The service is excellent and very friendly.
I loved it so much that I proposed to my (now) wife there and we also came back for our anniversary.
I highly recommend it! Make a reservation for dinner (goes double for weekends)
And if anyone from Temple Bar is reading this -
Please bring back the shortrib dish! I miss it terribly...
