    Ate there last night with some friends. It is a small restaurant with nice staff. It is a little loud at times since due to the hard wood floor and the hard ceilings. The food was good and the four of shared the dishes. I would recommend this place but I don't think it will be a place I go to all of the time. The only ding I have on the restaurant is that we had reservations at 8PM and was not seated until 8:30 (at least). This made dinner go pretty late although this wasn't a big deal.

    The food was good, only one dish ,the sea bass was great. The service is friendly but erratic. Be aware that It is difficult to park in the neighborhood. The Brussels sprouts were tasty however beware the tuna crudo is good but very spicy. The liver pate was good. Look at the menu before you go it is somewhat limited.

    Tried it out for a late brunch this past Saturday. After a bit of a wait, we walked around the block, we were seated at a small table. Julia, our waitress was outstanding. The food was piping hot and delicious. Even the takeout container was perfect for the trip home.

    I had dinner here with three others and the food was really good and imaginative. A thick piece of salmon was served and, unlike so many fine restaurants, it was moist and perfectly cooked on each of two servings. The drinks, which were fairly strong, were expensive at $10 each. And, alas, the service was not where it should have been. One meal was presented and then we sat for at least 10 minutes waiting for the next two. Then another wait for the final meal to come out, one of the evening's specials so I thought it should have been more ready to go. I know all about how hard it is to get different dishes to be ready at the same moment but this is an expensive restaurant with a professional kitchen staff. The food was great but I'm not sure I would go back in a city with so many really excellent restaurants.

    We went here after seeing pierogis on their menu on their website. While the website did clearly say Menu Changes Daily I was nonetheless sad that they did not have pierogis as I'm a sucker for any potato but especially pierogis! So my plan B was the ravioli, my husband had the pork special and his sister got the steak kabob. We also split some oysters and the crudo. Everything was very good. We sat at the bar and the bartender did a nice job of describing the dishes and answering questions. The rustic, fun and funky environment was also very relaxing. If you are in the area don't hesitate to stop here.

    This small neighborhood dining spot is charming and rustic, with a friendly staff serving farm fresh concoctions on Fabric Row. A comfort food meets local patisserie spot, we have yet to try brunch, but have that on the to-do list. We ventured in for dinner and enjoyed the decor of birdcages and farmhouse details. With a small and changing menu, we were eager to try some of the interesting options. With some advice from the staff, we decided on the chicken liver, gnocchi, squab (pigeon), and duck both ways. The starters were fresh and full of flavor. The squab definitely took some effort, as it is a small bird with a lot of other anatomical parts obstructing the meat. The meat itself was tender and flavorful, but the quantity of meat compared to the effort of getting there was a deterrent for future ordering. The duck both ways was very well prepared in both temperature and flavor. Overall it was a decent meal in a growing food scene location. Food quality - B Service - B Atmosphere - B- Water test - B+

    My family was here on a Friday night in November. The service, menu, food, and ambience were all excellent. Very warm and comfortable atmosphere. Our server really knew the food and was very helpful in making our selections. There's a long bar which is parallel to the tables, and while we were seated at a table the bar also looked like a great place to have a meal or just a drink. Very creative menu with lots of fresh ingredients. Great beer list and nice choice of wines, both by the glass and bottle. We really enjoyed the Mezzo platter, roasted cauliflower ravioli, and the salmon. We also noticed a semi-private area area in the back for larger groups. I would definitely go back and would love to try other entrees.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a quiet weekday lunch with a friend at this homey family friendly spot. Located on 4th Street in the heart of fabric row, this is a great addition to the neighborhood. We enjoyed creamy broccoli soup, a salad with warm spelt and delicious toasted bread with butter and a fruit compote. Prices are reasonable & I felt the staff was charming. Definitely worth a try. Am loking forward to returning for dinner.

    Really interesting menu and preparations for those who like adventurous food. Nice dining room, and excellent service. I highly recommend this new restaurant and will be back again for dinner and to try their brunch. The half chicken with tortillas is great and was enough to feed us both. Really great flavor and home pressed tortillas: rustic and flavorful. House pickles were really neat, the trout spread was also right on. Fun creative cocktails.

    Nice place, but the food was average, nothing special. The breakfast bowl ruined it for us, also not so friendly workers.

    The ambience in this little corner breakfast nook is quite nice it's very bright, it's very airy, and it's very clean. But the menu is limited, once you get beyond their baked goods, and everything seemed overly salted which is never a good sign of quality. They offered no daily specials and the price point for two people was over $30 for a simple breakfast. In addition, after paying over $3 for a SMALL cup of coffee they don't offer free refills. I suppose if you live in the immediate neighborhood it's a boon but otherwise it's a one-and-done.

    Unfortunate name since no one likes pigeons! Love the food, service, & decor. All 4 diners in our party loved everything we ordered. Flavorfully delicious biscuits & gravy, grilled cheese, open faced tuna sandwich, braised half chicken, and the egg & cheese sandwich with all the extra fixings! Great coffee (although really on the high side!) Great wine selections for a weekend brunch. Want to return for lunch or dinner!

    I stopped for breakfast just before 9am Labor Day and only one person was at a table and I hesitated but saw a huge selection of pastry. But I ended up getting the eggs, home fries, and toast and coffee. Eggs were plentiful, toast really good like Texas toast, an home fries came in a grilled square that looked like a big brownie but it was OK nothing special. Coffee as good but no free refills and it was 2.50 a cup. The place rapidly filled up and to o orders went out. I'd like to try some more later meals to get a real feel for the place.

    Just stopped in for two pastries. Person at the counter was not friendly, 1 slice of berry pound cake (1 1/8' thick x 3" x 4") and a small slice of peach almond tart was $10.80. More than the best pastry bakeries in Paris and San Francisco. Tasted good , but not worth the high price. Won't be back. Why not mark the prices on the pastry like all other places?

    We love this new addition to the up-and-coming hip 4th Street Corridor of Queen Village. With pictures of pigeons galore (hungry or not) this is a fun restaurant with really imaginative food.

    But the coffee was mediocre, a little bitter, plus there was a full charge for a refill (with a full breakfast order?). Pastry was excellent, great croissants, and specialty monkey bread. Poached eggs done right, and one gets 3 with a breakfast order. But, English muffins sliced not torn. What happened to the "nooks and crannies"? To recap: Best pastries in neighborhood and service is friendly, and the restaurant is a beautiful spot for a morning meeting. Coffee so so, No salt and pepper on the table Greasy block of home fries (not needed, not desired) slow service charge for refill of coffee cup
