We've eaten twice here and haven't been disappointed. It's a tad pricey but worth it. They will make fresh gauc at your table. The staff are very friendly. Plenty of seating and choices on the menu.

We frequent this place quite often, and really love the food there. The food is always great and service too( but we almost always sit at the bar when Javier the best bartender in the area works)
