Quality of food is below average and it took an hour to come. Don't waste your time and money. There are plenty of other restaraunts in the area.

Would never come back here. The food was so horrible, was kind of upset that I was even recommended this restaurant. Please do not come here you are wasting your money.

This is a newly opened restaurant and still has growing pains and needs to smooth our their operations. We ate in this restaurant during the busy July 4th weekend. Our reservation was at 8 PM and the place was packed when we arrive 10 minutes prior to the reservation. We were seated promptly but our table was next to a shelf where they store their glasswares and wine bottles.

It was very annoying that the waiters repeatedly reached across our table to get their glasswares. While eating, one of the waiters reached for a glassware and it fell behind me, luckily it did not land on my head.

The food was good, nothing spectacular for all the 5 star ratings it has been getting. Our waiter and the owner was nice enough at the end of our dinner to apologize for what happened.

Hopefully, this growing pains will be solve soon so other customers can enjoy and relax without the fear of getting hit by a falling glassware.
