The hostess was a young woman and when we asked how long the wait would be she said She wasn't sure and had to find someone else to ask. When we did get seated, we sat with four people at a table outside.... More

We went here for dinner one night because of a Groupon ($20 for $40 of food/drink). We had reservations for 7:30 but decided we were hungry around 6 and they took us early without issue. We sat overlooking Collins Ave which made for good people watching. We were still within happy hour so tried the discounted appetizer of calamari -... More
