The food was only fair to good. The service was absolutely the worst. No water, dirty glasses, no ice. The bread came without butter or oil, appetizers late and served separately. Food came out late and we (4) were ignored most of the time by...More

Group of 6 to celebrate a birthday. Staff friendly and wonderful. Even offered to cook gluten free. Food is delicious, and large variety. It's a BYOB, so that is always a good thing (Forget? no worries, liquor store down the street).

BYO. My wife and I enjoyed two different veal entrees and the servings where perfect. Sometimes restaurants give you way too much food and it just disguises a lack of quality. The house salads where simple and delicious.
