“They were kissing as they spoke really close up,” a source said, adding, “Ironically, she had a table in the front near the sidewalk, so she was clearly okay with being seen. She seemed very happy when interacting with the guy she was with.”

“She seemed confident and in a good place,” a second onlooker said of the Oscar winner, who added that Gaga "looked amazing."
