Went for Sunday evening dinner with the kids. Our youngest is under 2, active, but very well mannered in a high chair.
We waited in the lobby for a table for 15 minutes, but didn't get menus. When seated, we discovered the only option for the toddler was a booster seat with no straps, he just didn't understand why he had to sit down on a plastic block, and started crying. It didn't help that we only now had gotten menus, with no quick bread basket etc for the kids, as is common elsewhere.
The lady at the next booth made really nasty comments and we got up to leave, but a friendly waitress asked us to try another booth, and got our food quickly. The toddler had to be left in his stroller for the meal, and was happy and quiet.
Food was good. Alcohol too expensive, 40 bucks average for bottle of wine, over twice the cost of most entrees (main course, North American restaurants want to sound posh/French, but got the meaning wrong!).
Food and service good. The waitress' all wear slutty dresses, which is common here, and I still find a bit weird.
You have the option of tv-free very comfortable booths, or high benches on the other side with lots of screens.
Overall I guess it would be a fun place to go with older kids, but definitely not if you've highchair aged toddlers!
