Service was excellent, not overbearing, but attentive. Food was delicious as I had a spicy shrimp dish with garlic pasta. Interesting homey atmosphere. I enjoyed the dinner with my colleague.

My wife and I dined at your restaurant last night. We used valet parking and while waiting for our car we noticed in the key box written at the top " Welcome to Jew City" .With both of us being Jewish we found this distressing.
