It was easy to make a luncheon reservation for March 17. The ambience is nice, restrooms are clean but parking could be a pain, street parking. We were the first and there were only about 5-6 more tables occupied when we left an hour later....More

Didn’t have a reservation but they easily accommodated us. Very fast service and beautiful meat...especially the meat! They also do grilled pineapple. I didn’t try it but people I were with did and they thought it was delicious. Very cool place!
