Went to lunch with a friend. I had not been here since it was Hagen's a few years back. The place was dull, brown, tired - no ambiance. Basically a run-down diner in need of an overhaul. The few diners were elderly. Service was average,...More

Really good service, food has always been as expected....beautifully cooked and well presented. No guess work on what is going to arrive after you put the order in....in other words no bad surprises.
