We had a reservation, and were still made to wait more than 30 minutes past our reservation time. They finally offered us a complimentary plate of oysters, but only after I went up to the host and asked him if there was something the restaurant could do to make our unacceptable delay a little easier to stomach. That being said, the food was great and the atmosphere lively. Reservations were recommended, but I wouldn't put much stock in them seating you when you reserve your table. I would eat here again.
