3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Went there for a lunch meeting

The food was OK, nothing special

Staff were friendly, but service was slow

Although there was supposed to be free wi-if it didn't work

Would probably give it another visit for coffee, because of it's location , but not for anything else

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This place holds a special place for me because I had a first date with a special someone there. Any attempt to go back and enjoy drinks or food has proven to be disappointing. The cocktails seem to lack the right measure of ingredients. And the food is oily. I do think however it's okay for a quick coffee meeting, and if you like to hang out in front of a bar while watching a game on the bug screen, it will be great.
