The manager will literally berate you and follow you out the door if you don't pay your bill.....except we did pay our bill!! Our $20 tab turned into $45. Anybody considering visiting this ridiculously horrible place should plan to visit someplace else

For something to do in the evening that is relaxing, this hookah lounge is great. They don't sell alcoholic beverages, but you can bring your own for a fee. They do have other drinks such as water and tea. They also sell food! Several people...More

Dinner on the outside patio was a great place to enjoy dinner while people watching. Service was good and prices very reasonable. The falafel platter came with two packed to overflowing pita sandwiches, which my husband declared very good. And my rice/lentil platter topped with...More
