Yes, I do agree with you that we failed on our part. Server should have alerted the manager to take better care of you. We will be speaking and providing better customer service training. We apologize that everything did not meet your expectation.

Very surprised by the interior , the atmosphere was very nice. Our food came out relatively quickly, was hot and very fresh. Desserts looked fabulous but did not have room left after the meal. I had the chicken piccata and would definitely have that again.
