Everything thing is big here. You can split most everything and still walk away stuffed. The food is great but three stars because the service was a little lax, perhaps it’s because we went later in the afternoon (3pm)

Lots of selections and choices. Menu seems pricy but the quantity and quality reign. Best to share. Pictures on the walls of famous clientele. Server was a little grumpy at first but she came around at the end.

If i were you, i would drop by to ask to see the portion(s) of the food(platter) then decide. Platters are various in sizes (mostly the same everytime) but depends on what you order.

I definitely think you can order for a few less. My sister-in-law and I split a pick-four-meats plate and we had tons left over, although we did eat a ton of appetizers and soup. Maybe order for 8-10.

No, it is not Kosher in that they mix meat and dairy.
