This is an excellent restaurant but it's a bit of a scene so if you don't want to in the middle of all the action, request a table outside.

I went alone and sat at the Chef's table. Basically bar seating looking into the kitchen. So free entertainment. The food was excellent. Menu has enough variety that anyone should be able to find something to eat.

From the friendly, helpful staff to the delectable dinner, this is a wonderful place to eat. We opted for the happy hour; music inside filtered out to us on the patio as we watched the sunset. Can't get much better than that!

Call first for reservations because this place packs them in. We enjoyed the outside seating the best. Their potstickers, charred Brussel sprouts and mushroom pizza was amazing. They also have a signature mai tai that was really good as well.

Great food fun atmosphere, the lobster pizza is to die for! Also, the chicken wing appetizer is out of this world! Service was good overall and with how busy they are at all times of the day it's best to make reservations.

Hi there, sorry for my slow reply :) We accessed via a stair case at the front of the restaurant (which are quite steep). I didn't personally see access for handicapped patrons.
