“Great food, slowish service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012 via mobile

We went here for dinner on a Thursday night. The food was exceptional and the ambiance was quite nice as well. My one complaint was that the appetizer took forever to arrive and the entrees were slow as well. I would however return as it was a pleasant experience.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. you never feel rushed to leave.

The food is very, very good and very well presented.
