“More like a dive bar atmosphere”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Went for a business dinner. Decided on family style. Server was very nice and did a great job. Food was OK, pasta and salad were good but veal was tough and hard to cut, chewy. The atmosphere killed it. There were a couple intoxicated patrons roaming throughout the restaurant, loud and vulgar, rude, interrupting our conversation repeatedly. Most bars would have gotten this group a cab and sent them on their way. In fact they were allowed to roam the restaurant. Again this is a restaurant, not a bar where one might expect this. We eat here once a year when in the area on business, glad this annual outing is behind us.

“Size says it all”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Other than the food comes in gargantuan amounts, this place is so so. But, this review comes from a person who is not a fan of chain restaurants. The metro area has many outstanding local restaurants which would be better value and better food.
