Atmosphere: Really nice. Dimly lit with lots of wood furniture. The establishment is a bit small. It was on a Saturday night and it was packed. The bad thing about the crowd is that there was no one seating the employees, just people queing themselves and sitting down when a table frees up. The wait wasn't too bad, but they had a very nice beer list with a ton of beer paraphenelia all over the walls. I never had a chance to see the bar because the crowd was blocking the way.
Quality: Amazing, all their beers were in excellent condition. Everything was served in as proper glassware as possible, and the food was great.
Service: considering how crowded it was, the beers were served within reasonable time, but the food did take a bit longer, but thats ok.
Selection: I've never seen such a varied beer menu. They concentrate on quality no quantity. All the beers I wanted to try, but just didn't have the time, money, or the alcohol metabolizing abilities. Cantillon on tap, I've never seen it anywhere else. Everything on the beer menu they said they had....they had.
Food: Absolutely wonderful. I had the scallops and they just melted in your mouth. I also had the mussels steamed with IPA. Mussels were very fresh, but I think they might have used a little too much IPA. The soup left in the bottom that I soaked with the bread was a little too overpowering. A changing menu with what I hope is the freshest ingredients they can get.
Value: this place is pretty expensive, but the quality you get is well worth it. Wonderful selection of beers in proper glassware, good food and atmosphere. This place was so good, I had to visit twice. Dinner one night and brunch the very next morning.
