The food was mediocre. The service was so fast I felt like I got home before I had even left. Typical modern dining: Rushed. Plates practically ripped off the table while the waiter is simultaneously asking you if you are really done with it. Plates picked up while other people at the table are still eating. My father's dessert plate... More

It was my first occasion to dine at this place. I was very impressed with the service, food and ambiance. The waiter was very attentive, anticipated our needs without asking . The food was prepared exactly as requested, served timely and was hot. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

Heard from friends that this was very good.Found out that it was Disappointing. Noisy, food commercial, first course came out cold.Server was courteous but when questioned about the cold appetizer[2 meatballs for $15]she said I dont make the prices. Interesting since there were real values on the 2 for 1 menu that night. Perhaps it rates another visit
