It was our first time there during 5280 week with a party of 5. We got there at 7 and all ordered within 20 minutes. We didn't get out food until a little after 9 including the salad. The waiter didn't seem to concerned with our food and kept bringing us bread. We were with family from out of town so we had plenty to catch up and didn't complain. Once we got our food it wasn't very good and some had cold food. The next week I called and talked to the manager. He apologized and asked us to come back in for a free meal. We went back a month later with a couple of our friends. Everyone's food was amazing. At end of our meal the owner came and asked us how our meal was and apologized for the bad service we had. He brought us a nice bottle of Italian champagne and sat with us for a bit. Everything ended up being free which was probably well over $250. I was only expecting a free meal not everything for free!! The owner went far beyond our expectations and we were all very great full. I have never had the owner of a restaurant come sit with me to ask about my meal. I will definitely go back and eat there again because the food from the regular menu was much much better than the 5280 menu. Lesson learn from this is don't go to a restaurant for the first time during 5280 week. The food is not on the regular menu and you might be disappointed and never return.
