Slow service for 2 people.

Super slow service. Very dark seating in a booth. It was our wedding anniversary dinner. The waitress just shrugged it off and muttered something.Very "blah" food for $80. Won't go back.

Arrived towards late that evening, was seated promptly. Ordered salmon and shrimp, cooked very nicely and tasted great. Sam paired a terrific red wine with the meal. Everything couldn't have been better!
