This place is consistent with good food and good service. I marked this very good vs. excellent only because we had a two week reservation and they sat us in back corner with my partner facing the wall (bad seating). They cater more to party...More

I think the atmosphere in the restaurant is fine but the food was average. The service was very fast, really almost too fast. I kept thinking they were going to take the fork out of my mouth on my last bite so that they could...More
