Good food, nice people, good atmosphere. Didn't wait long to be sat, looooooong wait for the food. My kids decided it was called the starving artist because you starved waiting for their art. But good quantity of food. Everyone left full.

We went for lunch and were seated in the outdoor covered patio area. It was perfect weather for that type of setting and we enjoyed it. The decor is casual, but attractive.

Last time I had breakfast you could not make reservations and sometimes the line is long, but it's worth the wait!

I had a fabulous omelet with broccoli and cheese cooked just right. My husband had French toast, which he said was "okay." The restaurant was conveniently located a couple of blocks from our hotel, artistically decorated, with a friendly staff.
