This place has delicious food. Their weekly specials are usually good. Their food is overpriced however, since the portions are small. The food is not the issue here however, the SERVICE is the issue.

My waitress took about 8 minutes to

I went there two days ago on Monday for the first time, I walked by the store and saw this tiny, cute and crowded store. That was unusual for me that a store would have so many people at 6pm on Monday. I went in, the waiter was very nice. They offered me three plates of tapas for free, 2 dollars off for my red wine, and the best thing is......everything is 50% off on the menu(excluding drinks) I had three tapas, a glass of red wine, mussels with garlic and white wine, a giant cup cake, these cost me $14 for total and were all delicious. I will defintely go back again.

Pros: cup cake, tapas, happy hour

Cons: store is too small

PRO: went out to SIP a couple of weeks ago for their new brunch, they have all-you-can-drink-mimosa-or-other now on offer with the brunch menu. The potato and egg-dish was great, and the french-press coffees are really good. Mimosa was not watered down at all, and for $25 each we walked out of there after a couple of hours nicely drunk. Athmosphere is great; they sometimes have a live DJ; def. crowded but always seating for 2 people should be no problem. The owner is really nice and friendly and he is there most night.
CON: service could and should be much better!!! They take your orders quickly and food did not take too long, but the attitude is leave-me-be! with them and a frown on their face at all times....totally uncool.
Otherwise a great bar to have a drink !

As a neighborhood regular, I used to happen into SIP whenever I wanted a relaxed atmosphere and a sophisticated drink. Around November of 2007, SIP changed its menu and adjusted some of its decor. The place still looks clean and nice, but is not more brightly lit and kind of kitchy-feeling removing the atmosphere that once drew me to the restaurant. Also displeasing is the wait staff that could not be bothered to get off their cell phones nor give any pleasantries. My friend and I just went in there tonight to give the place another try. We were greated with an eager waitress, a good start, and given menus right away. We had just come from dinner and only wanted cupcakes and milk. Apparently annoyed that we would not be spending a lot of money, she rolled her eyes and huffed away. Coming back 5 whole minutes later, she let us know that they did not serve de-caffe coffee, which my friend had ordered. The cupcake, in plain view, was still not being plated. We decided that we did not need the pretension and bitchiness of the waitress. While leaving, the owner (I knew who he was before) seemed concered. Perhaps he noticed our poor treatment? I think we should have said something, but perhaps this note will discourage people from venturing there in the first place.

Pros: Good cupcakes

Cons: The atmosphere, the waitstaff, over-priced
