The service was decidedly average; not responsive at all. Most of our party don't drink but are loud and we were cut off for being drunk! Grrrr. I think the staff wanted to go home. Food came out for our table over 25 minutes from...More

Boring food of which they ran out of and forgot orders. Very poor service especially seeing the restaurant was not busy and there seemed to be plenty of staff working. A very limited wine list they must have a deal going with Jacobs Creek wines...More
