Stellar food -- "old school" sopressata sandwich (not on the menu anymore but the sandwich jedi in the back can whip one up pronto), fabulous ciabatta creations, amazing polenta, yummy guac, and one of the best brunches in the village!
Staff has changed, less friendly and less attentive. Manager can be very blunt but he's a good guy.
Music has changed; used to be great, amazing, well-balanced jazz that still let you have a quiet conversation. Now it's louder blues with the guitar amp turned up so loud you can't hear the piano or your friends.
Drinks very tasty and priced New York style; stay away from their "specials" and your dry martini with lots of olives will be nice to your tongue and wallet.
Fun people watching, especially on the weekends.
Pros: Great food, fun atmosphere, great social scene
Cons: Can be loud; spotty service
