Perfectly good food and pleasant staff but good but not exceptional. Doesn't warrant or justify the cost if paying for oneself rather than expenses. Disappointed and would not recommend.More

My honest answer is you can, but this is a very adult place to eat. It would not be my choice to take a young child. It is a cool trendy place for adults in a chilled area, note that I have 5 children so I have experience.
