Great food. I got the mahi mahi and my girlfriend got the short ribs. The ribs were amazing. It was a little expensive. Expect to pay 30-40 dollars a plate and drinks are around 10-12 dollars a piece.

Sometimes you get a great dish here, with great service, and great ambiance. Other times the service is the type of indifference you might put up with at Denny's, and the food is uninspired, particularly for the price. Since they are charging high-end for everything,...More
