Noise level is impossible. The crowd is very young and doesn't seem to mind. The food is pretty good, maybe a little overrated, but a refreshing change for the neighborhood. The "super" french fries with Dik Dik sauce were a big soggy. Dik Dik sauce turns out to be a sort of cheese sauce that renders them very uncrispy. You'll end up having to use a knife and fork. Other dishes were excellent, as were the wines, though some are pricey. Waiter could have been more attentive but the place is such a scene, it's hard to blame him. If you want a wine bar with a bar scene, ABV may work for you. Unfortunately, the restaurant is not big enough to escape the scene. If want to enjoy a glass or two of wine in pleasant surroundings, this is not the place.

Fish tacos, brisket torta and fall gnocchi were incredible. Skip the fried ravioli.
