Review by Athena Davis

Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Our server made us feel incredibly welcome, and helped us with our menu decisions. The cocktails were nice, and the food was quite good. The baked brie in particular was a great choice, we loved it. We had a small issue with one of our dishes, but our server and the manager worked well together to quickly address the situation. We look forward to another visit!

Great food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for dinner. The food was amazingly prepared and cooked to perfection.

Review by Amy Jou

The atmosphere and the food here is very good. Price is slightly higher but given the setting and the style of the place it is pretty reasonable. Love the mussle and also the calamari. Definitely check out the specials as they change often and worth trying. One little thing, their chair is somehow kinda light so if you put your winter coat on the chair back there is a high chance it will topple over, so watch out for that.

Review by Caroline Mountain

Great waitstaff, great food, fun atmosphere. My only complaints are that the wine selection is pretty expensive and their to-go boxes are leaky which is annoying. They always have great music playing, the food selection has a wide variety and is all delicious.

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
