Chef needs some lessons in preparing fine dining. Not terrible, just not delicious. But the waiter made up for it with excellent service.

The website says happy hour is from 4-6:30pm daily. They have a happy hour menu which you can only get at the bar or the high tops near the bar. If you sit in the dining room, you can’t do the happy hour specials.
