We came for a wedding and they accommodated the group in the bar and on the patio. Everything went smooth and the evening was a success. Highly recommend.

We were a group of about 16, so took most of the main dining room tables, but the servers were inattentive and did not get some orders correct. The room was so noisy from the bar area that we could hardly communicate.

We stopped in on a Saturday night. There was live music which was very fun and interactive. My fresco chicken sandwich was very dry, definitely over cooked. The staff was great and very attentive. Good place for groups.

The salad was kind of brown and it just didn't seem like the food was fresh. Service was o.k. but we won't return.
