So I really wanted to like this place but so much went wrong for us. The menu looks amazing the food came out looking delicious but it was a little bit deceiving. My chicken was dry and over fried,my 10 a plate of cold Mac...and cheese wasn’t worth it. The greens were odd but this is just my opinion because the place was packed (safety wise) considering the country’s current crisis. Not sure if it was because the kitchen was trying to keep up even though it was 2 o’clock in the afternoon on a Sunday that our food was a miss.More

Disappointing. First, they charge 4% “COVID tax” to pay for PPE, and supposedly help laid off employees. Second, they charge for bread. Third, my meal, the lamb chops, were way over cooked, and was listed as a four chop rack, and when it came it...was three, devised into two and one chop. I sent it back. When the second plate came it was cooked properly, but again not a rack, but two double cut chops. A manager brought out the plate, waited for me to cut it to test the doneness, then left. I never saw another employee until I was done. No additional concern, no offer of coffee or dessert for the inconvenience of my son eating his dinner as I sat at an empty place setting. I’m a manager of a top rated restaurant in Bethesda MD, and we would never respond in this manner.More

My husband & I really enjoyed the outdoor dining experience and our appetizer which was the crab artichoke dip was delicious. My hubby ordered the avacado bacon cheeseburger which he liked but the pickled potatoes that accompanied it tasted disgusting. I ordered the fish &...chips... I was disappointed that it had no flavor. I asked for salt and the server brought me a sea salt grinder which was very course; I couldnt use much of it as I would've been biting into chunks of salt. Our drinks were okay too. Just was slightly disappointed with the food.More

We made a reservation for 6 people for September 5, 2020 at 7.30 pm. They called us at 8 pm. The table they gave us was for 4 people, we objected. We called the manager. He said that 2 people sit on the edge of...the table so that 6 people can fit. We did not accept. At that time, the table for 6 was empty and we were able to sit. We have no complaints about the food, they were good. We ordered dessert. I ordered pie with ice cream. It came with cream. I objected and they changed cream with ice cream.More

Had dinner here the other day. Nice atmosphere and decent service. The food was good, well prepared and presented. The ribeye was slightly overcooked and, honestly, a bit on the thin side, which, for $27, was a bit surprising. Then again, this isn't a steakhouse,...so perhaps I should've tempered my expectations.More

Stopped here for brunch as we were traveling from SC to CT. Totally worth it. Restaurant is taking necessary precautions, so there is no buffet, but rather the staff members serve you. Food is amazing....best fried chicken in the area! Don't forget to request the...dessert plate at the end of the meal. Very pleased to see the restaurant add a 4% covid surcharge to assist staff members furloughed due to the pandemic. Every restaurant should do this. Go hungry since the $30 pp charge is a bang on the wallet. We will definitely be back.More

No idea what email or who Sadao is, presumably an employee. Try calling the restaurant. They are very prompt in answering.
