The food was excellent. I got the steak with the truffle fries and it was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the chicken piccata and loved it. We will definitely be back again.

Went here for lunch with a friend for the first time and really enjoyed the food. I had an avocado stuffed with chicken salad and it was delicious! The menu had some diverse options for salad lovers and healthy eaters. And the price was reasonable.
