The food was good but the bartender seemed to enjoy negatively talking about one of the prior guests. I think they should focus on providing good service and making drinks that aren’t leaking down the sides of the cups. The food was good for the...More

Drinks are very good but unfortunately the staff were so rude and asked us that ordering food is a “must” to be seated
