This is a nice local place with an established patron base. Not being the regulars, we however made last minute reservations for 9pm New Year's Eve dinner. After we arrived all dressed up and eager to be seated, we found a crowd of people waiting outside. We ended up waiting with many other groups of people for 45 minutes not sure if we will be seated at all. This is inexcusable for New Year Eve, as everyone has specific plans. Although food was good,waiters were very rushed and many items on the menu were not available any more. Our guess is that earlier in the evening the owners let people in right from the street, disregarding how this may affect the later reservations.
