They have a prompt and courteous service. The food quality is very average. Chicken tenders were tough and the quesadilla was falling apart. The drinks were interesting and very dependent on the server. So it can be a hit or miss!More

This meal was amazing, and a perfect prelude to seeing "Hamilton". Our waiter, Eduardo, was excellent, and kindly brought me 2 little pots of frothed milk for my coffee. All of the large variety of foods available were delicious!
