it's crowded, it's nice - but the food lacked flavor. I had a salad. The dressing was oily and lacked flavor. It's near the nightlife of the city....and prices are moderate. If the food was good it'd be a gem.

Didn't give it 5 stars because they should take reservations. 2 1/2 hr wait is ridiculous . It's not worth that.

Good: Nice location and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. The steak was good and so were the sides. Needs improvement: The people I went with did not really enjoy their meal. Thought the food was actually sub-par to some of the national chains. Quality...More

This cute downtown restaurant has been one of our "go-tos" when we come to see our student. However, this visit was markedly different than has been our previous experiences. The service at this visit was very slow (40+ minutes from ordering to receiving food) and...More

I am not sure if they accept reservations. I ordered a birthday surprise dinner and dessert for a college student. He put the thumbs up for the meal.
