We really liked the atmosphere and the food here (had a disappointing bottle of wine though). Service is good and would definitely visit again if we're back in this area

Good atmosphere, friendly service and large portion sizes. Unfortunately some utensils were not clean and 1 of the dishes wasn't heated thoroughly and had to be sent back. Problem was addressed in a very efficient manner. Good experience overall.
