Average steak and service. Also was mislead by server on the accompanying vegetables which lead us to order unnecessary additional sides. Wine also expensive for sub par options.

Though finding the restaurant is a bit difficult and the space is congested , the dishes are ok but not upto the mark.The vegetarian set meal needs improvement with an increase in portion size. Overall the experience was not bad.

Overpriced food for very mediocre quality. If you enjoy the same concept (note that it does not necessarily correlate to taste) and environment as Open Farm Community, then you will enjoy your experience.

Went with high expectations! Was highly disappointed with the disdainful staff. I would rate the food okay, but not worth going for because of the service. Not going back for sure.
