Description: It's all about cravings. Satisfying the ones you have, and creating sensory experiences that are totally unexpected.

“Great food”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The food was great and the drinks were tasty. The menus had a back lite which was neat. However the service was attentive but a little slow.

“Great Meal!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

I loved eating outside with the light up menus. A first for me. The meal was great, the prices were good and atmosphere was the best. We are planning our next visit.

“Hit and miss”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

You have even odds of getting either exceptional food and service, or average food and lousy service. Too bad. This used to be a real find.

“what wait staff?”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

food was marginal and the service was very slow... our server from breakfast took our order and disappeared... expediter delivered our food and we had to ask two different staff members to find our server so we could get our check. When she finally arrived, she asked if we needed anything else, then promptly left, saying she'd be right back with our check. Someone else showed up 10minutes later to drop off our check...

“great wine list, decent food”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Food was decent but a bit overcooked (we ordered chicken and the pork, both had a lot of potential that they didn't live up to.) appetizer portions were ginormous! Wine list was great though.
