“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Tried this restaurant for the first time in their new location and it was very disappointing. Three of us went for a late lunch and we were the only people in the dining room. There were two people dining on the patio. Two of us ordered sandwiches and another ordered an entree. The steak & cheese sandwich was served with fries. It was sent back because the steak had an aftertaste, the roll was slightly burnt, and the fries overdone. The server offered to replace it with something else, but the offer was declined. The reuben special was just ok and the chicken parm came with a salad (mostly lettuce), al dente penne that was stuck together, and a burnt chicken cutlet. My friends ate their meals rather than send them back but were dissatisfied with the preparation and quality of the meal. We waited a little more than 35 minutes for our meals to be served. We won't be eating here again.
