I love this place..... however I've had two dinners here and both have been disappointing. Tonight I had the special the Cornish game hen. It was dry and flavorless. On the upside ...The drinks Are fantastic. The staff is friendly. The atmosphere is warm.

Very tasty food with imaginative and wonderful cocktails. The service was fantastic as well. Ask Molly to come up with a special cocktail and she won’t disappoint.
