Under renovation. Only one of three elevators working even then they promised two. Old building. Renovation may help. But, in my opinion needs to be demolished and rebuilt from ground up.
Terrible restaurant. Our group of six placed our order and waited 20 minutes for any of our food to arrive. Then only two received their's. 20 minutes later another couple received part of their order. 20 minutes later my wife and I were told that our order had been delivered to another table by another waiter. Those people ate our food and left without paying - we were told. The waiter was very apologetic and brought my wife the salad she ordered and told me my order was being prepared. A few minutes later he brought me a salad and said my order had NOT been started.
The waiter was great and explained it was the cooks first day. Honestly, I believe he was doing the best he could. I also believe the other waiter took our food intentionally for the other people to eat and leave without paying ( a setup). If it was the cook's first day, he/she should NOT have been in the kitchen without help of some one experienced.
