Enjoyed a visit to this restaurant over the weekend. It was busy when we arrived, told the host what type of seating we would like. While waiting for a seat, I noticed the people cleaning the tables, passed a damp cloth back and forth to wipe down several tables, never rinsing between uses. Found that a bit gross, as it was clear they were just smearing the crumbs and other table waste from one table to another. When they first started to seat us, they were going to put us at a very small table, we rejected it and asked about another empty table nearby. They cleaned it for us. Noticed that the girl also got a clean cloth this time too. From there on, the evening was good. Our waitress Jeanna was prompt, courteous and had a bit of flair. We order appetizers and drinks. Jeanna took care of it promptly, drinks out and food shortly thereafter. We advised we were not in a hurry, so she knew not to try to push through to ordering meals or dessert. She did keep an eye on our drinks and got us fresh ones as needed.
In the end, the visit worked out due to Jeanna's service and the food and drink being good.
