Waiter was very nice but management is very rude and could care less about customers. Food is average at best and so overpriced. If you are not a "regular" then you are out of luck.

Casual dress code, but just keep in mind steaks and lamb not quality prime cut meat. All side dishes are ala carte . Be prepared to spend money on average service and poor quality meat. Good luck!
