Excellent dining experience. Food and service was exemplary. The owner took time to talk with us extensively which impressed us. If you want to relax and appreciate your time away from home, this is an awesome place to eat or hang out.

We went here for lunch one day and the food seemed to have way too much effort put into it with not such good results. We would try it again, but on someone else's tab. Creativity is ok, but abnoxious seems to be the theme on some dishes.
