The food is admittedly good, but the management and service is as poor as it gets. You know it's true when you're celebrating someone's birthday, chatting around the table and you're told by the "hostess" you've overstayed your welcome. They 'need the table'. Really, Papa...More

I hope I'm not coming down on this restaurant too hard by giving it a grade of '2'. But yet there was very little that I enjoyed in this place with the exception of our very friendly waitress, who was really nice, friendly and great...More
