We had been to this restaurant several times, each time it was worst than the last. It seems when they first opened, the owners concerned themselves with good food and great service.

The restaurant is laid out with a very open configuration. No booths as such. all open tables. this takes it in a very bright open pattern rather than the darker style that most mid to high end places have. Despite this it is not excessively noisy at all.
