On Thursdays they have a live DJ starting at 6:30pm.


On Yelp, RY P, from Great Neck, gave it five stars.


“Great attentive service and beautiful space,” she wrote. “The Caesar salad was excellent as was the Burrata and beet salad. My friend loved the sea bass and my burger was delectable.  The thick maple bacon made it perfect!!! Great fries too. Looking forward to going back soon!!!"


Gina I, from Williston Park, agreed and said she couldn’t get enough.


“We have been here twice for dinner, looking forward to my next meal,” she said. “The food is amazing. Everything from the bread to the dessert. Cocktails are spot on.”
