The food was amazing, the service was very very slow, borderline horrible. They must be understaffed. no excuse, when I plan to spend 65/75 on just my meal, then to tip, I expect more. When I wrote about my experience on facebook, the chef saw my review and posted he was the only one cooking that night. His name is... More

The food here is always consistending good with decent size portions. Breakfast, lunch or dinner are all good choices depending on the time of day and how busy they are. Where this place fails to deliver is on service; there are never enough servers for the amount of tables they seat. We made the mistake of dropping by after church... More

The restaurant was packed but the staff was calm and efficient. Food was excellent. You could tell the Chef made his food, sauces, etc. from scratch. Salad was really good, dressings... More

We really wanted to try this place and noticed it was open until 9pm. After a long drive we arrived at 8.20pm and were told we had missed service and they were closing. I asked if they would allow us to order something to take out and were told that the kitchen had closed. We understand we were here to... More
