Went here before we had to attend another engagement. The place is always busy but they did accommodate us without any issue. We had a couple of drinks and appetizers and were on our way. Good food and the service was very good.

There were six of us out for supper. Good menu options including vegetarian. The restaurant is nice inside but quite dark at our seating area. More lighting would be helpful although I suppose it would affect the ambiance. The food was good, we mostly had...More
