Service was attentive, but not over bearing. The food was delicious and prepared to order. The desserts were amazing.

Best French onion soup I’ve ever eaten. Fun place for a date night with an awesome bar and amazing food. A bit on the pricey side but the jalapeño bacon Mac n cheese is worth going for alone. Fun staff and great service.

Questions & Answers
Thank you for your response to my review. I am so sorry that you feel your staff could not control our experience at your restaurant. We did not choose our seating location. We were placed there and then AFTER that they seated 5 tables with small children around us. That was the reason for the rating of 1 for service. As for the 3 managers on site, we never saw any of them. It was probably too loud for them to bother to come into that room. As for the Waitress, we told her about the problem and all she said was I am sorry about that. As for the normal survey you provide at the restaurant that was conveniently forgotten on this occasion. Maybe you should be less worried about your ratings and more worried about really listening to what people say. I would have gladly changed it but since you published that it was our fault that our experience was poor I will just leave it like it is.
