Food Quality - Awesome
We went with another couple and shared:
Noise Level/ Ambience - Awesome
Noise level registered at 61 decibels, appropriate for a comfortable conversation. We liked the space, with very high ceilings with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows looking northwest over NE 2nd, giving it a cool vibe. There's a stage with live bands after 9 p.m. on Fridays and at earlier times during the week. The band was quietly setting up while we ate. There's also an enclosed heated patio area with outside bar and outdoor seating for summertime eating. The place is a bit hard to find, with no real signage outside and a fairly bland entrance, in an office building.
Value - Awesome
All happy hour food selections are $2 off regular menu price; not a huge price difference, but the quality and presentation makes it a great value. Something else we also appreciated was their use of hand-held credit card readers. The server ran credit cards right at our table, and we finger-signed right on the device. The credit card never left our sight. Very European. Also if you're a Passport Corporate member they offer BOGO on entrees.
