$380 (after tip) for 4 people? Not worth it. Scallop dish had only 3 scallops. Beer list was uneventful. Wines were pricey. The place was largely empty at 6:45pm on a Saturday night?

First time to OSA and it was terrific. We had the octopus and asparagus appetizers and both were uniquely prepared and excellent served in a sharable size. My scallop entre was perfectly cooked on a fun plate of different flavors and sauces. Our midnight manhattans were a favorite prompting several reorders. Our server Sarah was very personable and seemed to care that we had an enjoyable experience. She was very knowledgeable about the menu items. It always adds to our experience if the staff appears happy and excited about their job. Sarah gave us that vibe.

Excellent food, well presented in a modern (=noisy) room. One day they will be able to afford an espresso machine, I guess, and it will be even better.

We ate outside where it was quiet and we felt we had the area to ourselves. Service was very accommodating of various members in or party arriving late. Nice wine list and creative food choices. Loved the sunchokes appetizer.

One of the best brunch experiences I've ever had. The outdoor seating is cool and far enough away from the sounds of main street, a clever set up. Cocktails were top notch, service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. The chicken hash was my favorite food, and the suntory smash my favorite drink.

We were a party of 3.

We made a reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday night.

What I noticed immediately on the menu was that bread and butter cost $4. We ordered a few appetizers to share; burrata and olives. Since our bread and butter were almost gone, and we needed something to put the burrata on, we ordered more bread. It was provided without butter for $3. We asked for more butter. I will state that the burrata and bread were delicious (I did not have any olives.) $7 for bread though. Yikes. My friend ordered a salad as her salad course and it was a generous (normal) size. Since I had ordered a "warm salad/greens" appetizer as my entree, I felt I had made the right decision for a light entree. I ordered the Dan Dan Greens. The description of the dish mentioned greens but the waitress was unable to tell me what the greens were. It was prepared with an Asian flare (peanut butter, soy, pork, etc.) It was actually enough for my entree; it was approximately 1 scant cup of food. One in my party ordered spaghetti and meatballs -- she didn't rave about it. Another ordered a burger. She didn't rave about it. Our drinks were okay--I foolishly ordered a second one. It was a pretty pink color and I was in the mood. I won't be back any time soon. I'm glad I went to check it out. I like that people are willing to take on Middletown for destination dining.

I would suggest adding a bit more to the hummus plate, and Naan. It was very good but Not enough for sharing.

very nice service. The noise, however, was deafening and something the restaurateurs ought to address.

I'd recommend the restaurant to try but I wouldn't go back. I picked it to take my college student son out to dinner. It was WAY too noisy. I can enjoy a festive atmosphere but the acoustics in here are really bad. The food was very inconsistent. The beet appetizer was excellent. The bread, while good sourdough, was not exceptional nor plentiful enough to warrant a charge. I was happy to pay for a special bread, but this was quite ordinary by finer dining standards. They were out of the strip steak so substituted a lesser quality of meat and charged the same amount. The chocolate chip cookies were outstanding. So, there are some worthwhile things to try but I won't be rushing back.

I had a mixed drink- perfect alcohol content and tasty! Can’t say enough about this place. Great for a girls night or date. Even good for families that want to expose their kids to some cool foods.
