Food was amazing! It is crowded and noisy though, and a curtain separates the tables from front door. It's cold and kind of annoying if you sit by the door, which I did. Wait staff was attentive and prices reasonable.

Old-fashioned ambience, old-fashioned (meaning excellent) menu, old-fashioned (meaning flawless) waiters. Quiet for good conversation. What's not to like?
