Came here for my birthday I was satisfied with the food even though it took 1 hour to come after ordering. MOST of the staff was super nice and offered us drinks on the house and made our wait more convenient.

Nice ambiance, very good service and the food was very good also, but the price point was high. Not enough of a carnivore to taste the difference in their meat compared to mainstream mid-range restaurants.
