Can you guys open a restaurant in SF? This was a whole new experience. A mean, food was very good, but the restaurant was super cool. Old building in old town transformed into a very eclectic and chic place. The decor is insanely cool, chandeliers and more. I actually liked the first floor better than the second, the second floor was a little more stiffed but still nice. Great menu, awesome cocktails and good food. Staff could've been a little friendlier but they were good still. Would recommend for a work function.

The ambiance was nice. The drinks were strong. The service was pretty good also. I wish I could give it another star just for those three reasons. However, the food was uninspired and mediocre at best.

very contemporary interior design. the first floor ceiling is made of wine glasses. the second floor ceiling is made of water bottles. pricey to dine in. the crispy duck is unique and the kale salad is good too. if you're on a tight budget, stay on the first floor for a drink and the ambience.

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Lee was amazing, her knowledge and professionalism was astounding. I'm telling all my friends about this restaurant. Thank you will never be enough.

Dine like a Sommelier! Happy Hour at Alpana Singh's new restaurant this past Friday was a pleasure. We enjoyed everything--from the delicious Kale Caesar to the tasty twist on a Sidecar and the celebratory décor. I will definitely return, if only for the friendly service.

I've eaten upstairs and downstairs at this restaurant, and I've gotta say, downstairs was my favorite. The downstairs menu is more low-key and includes a ton of great pizza choices - delish. You should try the brussel sprouts, too. The upstairs was gorgeous, but the menu didn't feel super original. Plus they won't bring you pizzas up there! Sometimes you can sweet talk your waiter...sometimes. I loved the Scallops, the Bibb Lettuce salad was just okay. Little known fact - they have an AMAZING event space which is a lofted area above the dining room. This place would be great for a rehearsal dinner or the like - maybe an engagement party - and I'm sure you could do something cool with a wine tasting, as the owner is a world-class sommelier.

I've been here twice. The first time I visited, I came to eat dinner. The food and service were excellent. And the owner/chef introduced herself to us, which was a great treat. The bar is also great. Upscale. Classy. Great for after work drinks and appetizers.
