    We made reservations here to watch a world cup game. Since it was a Monday, the place wasn't that busy, but they had let us pick a table near one of the big screens. I will say they only have 5 large TV's (2 at the bar) but you can see them from most places in the pub. But everything else was great. Again the staff (manager, server, host) all worked extremely hard to make sure we were comfortable, and had everything we needed. They put the game sound on which was awesome. Drinks and food was excellent. Overall this was great experience and we will certainly be back.

    Food was excellent. Service was slow. Had to get waitress' attention to order main course and had to ask for refills multiple times. Slow Service has been the issue each time we have visited, but the food was excellent.

    Very nice ambiance, service was really nice and it was a new server who did an amazing job. Everyone is pretty cheerful at this location. This is my second time visiting TL the first time was the location at the Toyota factory. I had such a great experience there with the staff and general manager Kevin that I decided to visit the one closest to me. The food is really good and fresh, very well seasoned. I definitely recommend the spicy cauliflower, spicy chicken sandwich , the artichoke spinach dip and the raspberry martini if you stop in for happy hour.

    Patio, location and space is GREAT! Layout is fun. Food is a little salty. And music needs changing—it would make a BIG difference! It’s too “club”—MGMT came on and that was a good vibe. Maybe something more along those lines? Service was awesome!

    This was the second time we went. The first time we had nothing but praise. However this time we set at the bar and the service was horrible. Food came out wrong had to be sent back. Not because of the kitchen but the bartender wasn’t listening when we ordered. We weren’t even asked if we wanted a second drink. On a positive note the food once again was great. We will go back but never to sit at the bar.

    What fantastic service! Our server and the managers were very welcoming and helpful. My southwestern salad exceeded my expectations. We all really enjoyed our food. My husband and I will definitely eat there regularly, as we live blocks away. And my friends and I so appreciated the low noise level!!!

    Megan was a nice server. The patio tables were grimy to be honest, but our server, once she learned of the problem, was happy to wipe it down. The 3 different Happy Hour apps we ordered were good; though, one was input wrong, but our server made it right. We had a nice experience!

    I went with my brother and his family (3 kids). We sat on the side patio. Everything was good except the service could have been better. I believe they were short staffed last night. I waited until about 20 minutes after everyone else got their meals to get my simple California roll. I probably would have had something else to drink had she come back more frequently and I would have used my birthday dessert coupon had service been better but the children were tired.

    Glad something has gone into the space, esp. w/ the great patio. I like the menu, lots of choices, and decent value. Food was good, not great, but about what I would expect for a place like this. They've only been open a short time, and need to work on their wait staff. Still, the patio alone makes it worthwhile.

    Went for brunch. Seated quickly outside. Took a long time to get service and cup of coffee. Ordered an egg dish without cheese sauce also a salad with chicken. Sat for too long and egg dish arrived with cheese sauce. It also wasn’t very hot. Back it went. Long wait and egg dish arrived but luck warm. Eggs well done not ordered that way. Not successful in getting a refill of coffee. Asked to see manager who took egg dish back to kitchen, had it made and returned with a hot egg dish. Although no charge for the brunch it was too much work and time to get an edible brunch.. a side note, everything was over salted. I live in the neighborhood and will give them another chance. Don’t really know if they don’t have sufficient staff or being new at this location they need time to learn how to get food prepared quickly and out to tables.

    The food was great. We will definitely return. Our second visit was just as good as the first. The only problem is the noise level. Extremely difficult to have a conversation with others at the table because the music is so LOUD. When that happens, all the guests talk even louder. Does not make for a relaxing meal. I would highly recommend turning down the noise level of the music, so customers can relax and enjoy time with their friends. The longer they stay, the more they eat and drink.

    The menu provides a variety of options, from Scotch eggs to sushi rolls. Everything we had on this visit was delicious. The downside is an apparent staffing issue, where our first server hesitantly took our table, after expressing that it was not her table. Another server pitched in when we were looking for our check. The menu will bring us back, but we hope the service catches up with the food.

    Most of the food has been very good, but last night the bread and vegetables were horrible. They were obviously cooked in rancid oil. The waitress took the bread off the check but did not address the vegetables. I would have thought that the manager would have come to the table but it didn’t happen. This is our 5th visit since the restaurant opened only a few weeks ago. Really want them to succeed but it won’t happen if they continue to use old cooking oil.

    Just a big ol' Meh experience. Wife and I were excited to try this new place. Asked for a booth on the reservation. When arrived we were told that they couldn't accommodate - however, there was an empty booth when we arrived that sat empty the entire 1 hr and 20 mins we were there. Also, their bar drinks are scant in portions. Food was pretty good, but probably not much better than what you'd get at Chili's for a cheaper price. Service staff is green and not knowledgeable about the menu - e.g., recommending the Calamari while also acknowledging that it is "rubbery" in texture....

    Scotch eggs and the edamame were delicious!! Clam chowder was tasty, however a bit cold for my liking. My girlfriend had the Poke Stack, which was delicious, except for the rice which was essentially one packed mass of sushi rice, unable to eat.

    Wait staff were nice but when we arrived the hostesses seemed very inexperienced and had their backs turned to us for a long time until another team member walked over and told them we were there. It was really noisy just because of hollow echo of the restaurant so our waitress had a hard time hearing us. Scotch eggs were great but the rest of our food was just okay. My husband is British so disappointed to see so little traditional pub fare on the food and drink menu. Some Indian influences would be nice but there was a predominance of Asian food.

    We were able to get a reservation on a Friday night. The place was hopping! Completely full. The service was good, and the food was really good. It was a little too loud for productive conversation, and I personally would prefer to sit at a regular table instead of a high top. But we enjoyed the experience.
