    This was the only place that could accommodate a party of 7 a week prior and it made sense why. The service was slow and the food was average. The carnitas platter was actually way more than we expected so that was a plus. It may have been a night with limited servers. The drinks and the ambiance were really cute. I wouldn’t come back aside for maybe drinks only.

    How adorable is a secret garden theme bar! We came here to celebrate my birthday with a group of 12 and it was excellent. The T&R team was so accommodating, our food was delicious (get the taco platter for a group!) and our drinks were fabulous. Kat, our server, took excellent care of us and had fantastic recommendations for everyone. We also tried the adorable Secret Garden specialty batch cocktail drink (basically a flower bouquet!!!) and it was tasty and so fun to share. I know the themes change every so often, but I can’t wait to see what they’ll do next up here. Would recommend for a fun celebration with a group, girls night or a romantic evening! We requested an indoor spot because it’s still cool outside, but I wish it was a few weeks later because the outdoor patio looks so inviting! I think we’ll have to come back!

    Interesting experience at Thistle & Rye, it covers the basis in terms of ambiance, vibe, decor , etc. the balcony seating is great with a cool view and I liked the drinks, but the food left a lot to be desired especially for the price, nothing against the cooks, the menu itself is pretty boring/uninspired, would go back if the price and food were better.

    Unfortunately it was raining so we could not do the curling pop up bar experience. I did pay a deposit to hold our reservation but never got it returned or credited when we went for drinks and apps.

    The service was pretty slow despite not being very busy. The food was just ok. The decor was distracting and tacky. For what we were paying it was not a great experience.

    Igloo was freezing the heat they supply is minimal. They were giving people extra blankets. The bartenders were excellent, the wait time for food and beverages was long even though is wasn’t overall busy.
