We were taken here by a local and this was a nice surprise. The food was amazing and would recommend to anyone who happens to be in this area. Service was great the woman who waited on us had worked there for years. Wonderful atmosphere too. Hope to get another chance to visit in the future.

All in all we had a great time with no major complaints. Servers did seem to mull around a bit and group together to talk but it happens. Hope to... More

It isn't easy to handle a large crowd, so I was worried when we arrived with a party of over 30 people including 15 twelve year old soccer players. The staff was courteous, efficient, and very patient as we arranged and re-arranged their tables to seat the children together. The food was all excellent and served all at once, an... More

Lured by good reviews, my wife and I tried this restaurant for dinner on a Monday. Very nice restaurant with a very attrative bar area. Good happy hour with drinks and snacks. My wife had the grilled Cuban chicken and I had the fried pork chucks. We both enjoyed our dinners very much and plan to return soon.
