It took them 30 minutes to bring us two drinks and a bootle of wine and another 45 minutes to serve for dinner. Way to much! The excuse that they are understaffed is not my problem.More

Good food an service portions are fair not overbearing. Lunch for 4 without drinks,, with tip $100. Add drinks and appetizer and you will push $200 so pricey $$$. Nice atmosphere but you paid for it.
