It’s a lovely atmosphere, good food, and the service is spectacular if you request Joanne. We came late after kitchen’s closing, starving, and she bent over backwards to get us food and treated us well for hours after her shift closed.

This was our first time at this place. The food was very good, however I am not a fan of adding 20% to my bill just because I have a party of 6 or more. What if I had terrible service??? I would not tip...More
