This place is a good one to take the whole family to. Food is great. My favorite dish is their shrimp 3 ways, excellent. Check out their seasonal specials. My whole family would recommend this place to anyone. Cocktails are inventive and are fund way to try new drinks.

The menu recently changed, but you still have a nice selection of food. At night the place can be busy and the wait for seating can be long. The place is popular because the food and service are very good. We were there for lunch, seated and served quickly.

I have been several times. Everyone thinks this place is super spectacular and over the top... I do not see it. I do not find it worth the wait; for a table and then at the table for 30 minutes. Most of the time my food is like warm when I get it. And I find the food is overpriced... More

This place used to be very popular with long waits. Lately, they've changed their whole advertising campaigns as well as their menu, and we had no problem getting a table for 8 on a Saturday night. They used to have coupons all the time, but now there is none. The food was never the best, but it has gotten worse... More

I really enjoyed this place. The décor is really cool - you'll like it. The vast majority of the entrees here are under 20 bucks. The service is great. I had the lettuce wraps and that was enough for me. This is a chain, but it was new to me as I am from CT. I will return!!

Atmosphere is just OK. I thought it was going to be an Indian restaurant and it isn't and I was disappointed. But more disappointing was the bad service we received. First we waited over ten minutes for anyone to stop by our table. Then we waited at least 20 minutes for our drinks and starters. Then one of us still... More

Was one of our regular consistent restaurant until owner change and then menu change then staff change. Used to be packed. Now we easily find room. Food ok at best and service poor
