    Nov 4, 2012 TOO Crowded "I've been here twice, and both times it was an affront to my personal space. They squeeze as many people as possible into this small bar area, and force patrons to wait half the night for a seat at their even tinier dining area. Good luck trying to get to the bar, as it's nearly impossible without accosting the people to the right and left of you. For some place masquerading as trendy and sophisticated, getting out the door was like shoving my way through a frat party. As other reviews have mentioned, the food is not great. I'd go a step further and say the drinks are not worth the drama, and you can certainly find an equally or better crafted cocktail with that same speakeasy/clandestine thrill at somewhere like Little Branch or Milk and Honey, and I'd throw in Ward III if you want the lively atmosphere as well but executed with a little more panache." hide

    Nov 4, 2012 Superb Staff "I came here with a friend to try oysters, and I think I can safely say that this is the best oyster bar in the city. The bartenders are delightful. My friend and I didn't know which kind of oysters to order, so our server gave us a rundown of the extensive menu and, once we'd parred down the flavors we were looking for, offered up some of his favorites. What we were served was so good, we got another round, in spite of the prices. $3 an oyster really adds up! Everything was very fresh. The cocktail menu was heavy on absinthes and bourbon-whiskey-type liquors. You can tell the restaurant and its staff take the whole operation very seriously. The crowd was very smart and trendy, so if you like a little "scene" to go with your dining, this place has got it but doesn't overdo it. Highly recommend it." hide

    Nov 4, 2012 Smart Professionals "It's another speakeasy, but this one doesn't take itself as seriously as your Angel's Share or Milk and Honey. It does, however, give you the same personalized treatment in cocktail tailoring, but with a set list of flavor/texture descriptions to, I suppose, guide the bartender's guesswork. I ordered a michelada, which wasn't on the menu, but the waitress said she'd see if the bartender could do it. He could, and it wasn't half bad. (Granted, a respectable bartender should be able to make standard drinks on cue, but you'd be surprised...) The din in this place is deafening. I literally couldn't hear the person sitting next to me (Grandma likes a nice quiet conversation), but the crowd is pretty smart and sophisticated and the drinks are great. " hide
