This spot was within walking distance of our hotel. It was fairly empty for early-ish dinner (around 5:30), so we walked right in. The server was kind and knowledgeable. Everyone's food looked amazing. I had the blackened chicken tacos - no regrets. I actually had...More

This is a go-to for lunchtime. Food is solid, but creative. Make sure to listen to the lunch box special. I also like the African stew.

There aren’t many restaurants with vegan options, so this one peaked our interest. They have so much potential, but the menu didn’t offer much variety. We ordered the nachos and were disappointed by how few tomatoes and/ or salsa was on the chips. The cheese...More

PROs: intriguing menu, fine ambiance, fine food. CONs: bad, despicable service, unwilling to make alternative suggestions in case of a specific food intolerance. A dismissive attitude that should be unfit with this concept restaurant. Conclusions: my experience was spoiled, you might be luckier.
