Yes, I'm a vegetarian. I went here with a group of friends for a birthday celebration and ordered the special salad. Sorry nothing really special about it. Not too many veggies and it was over dressed. I may be the exception to the rule. At 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday there was a line to enter the place.

Excellent service was astounding. The lighting was exceptional and the food is always subpreb. Never had to ask for anything twice or even once. The waitress was very pleasant and professional. I just love the decor of this place.
