The fish filet was spoiled. Presentation was too bad. Place does not seem to be clean enough. It was my last try. No more visits to this place.

The service and staff very friendly and nice. I had the chicken breast with the sweet onions and it was pretty good. My wife had a traditional beef dish and didn't care for it. Very reasonable. Nice a nice looking dining room but clean.

Went in for a late lunch. Place looks pretty nice from the street thought I'd try it out. The menu is robust, soups, meat, salad, sandwiches and deserts. Even a take out area with pastries and other items. Service was average and food was also. Disappointed of the flies in the dining area. All in all I would give them... More

Food is ok, service just ok, I don't know but I think the chicken with mushroom is better at the Balcon in Deerfield. I also ask for sweet plantains instead of the broccoli, but to be honest I didn't like them, they tasted raw. I didn't return them because I didn't want to be annoying, also because nobody went to...
