I reserved for Thanksgiving not knowing a lot of choices in the area. The staff all seemed unsure of what they were doing. Service was slow. The food was tasty but overpriced. We weren’t offered coffee. The apple pie was very good.

We had a small family reunion at Chef's Station and enjoyed it very much. The menu isn't huge, but it is diverse and the food was fantastic. They have an outdoor patio that sits directly under the subway, so it can get noisy, but it...More
