“Pretty Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We waited a long time for a table (for 5), then got inside to find at least 33% of the tables on the 2nd floor empty! Service was good and the wait staff took time to explain stuff to us and make an unpressured decision. Food was great, but national menu selections versus local specialties.

“excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Since this restaurant is obviously meant to attract tourists, I was expecting high prices and mediocre food. But we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful and the service was over-the-top excellent. And the prices were just at the top end of "reasonable".
