Very friendly??? They must be selective.
This terrible rating is strictly for the reception and treatment by the staff, not for the food because we never got that far. You immediately feel awkward walking in because there is no entry way, you walk right into the dining room. My wife and I and two teenage boys were told it would be a 25 minute wait "maybe 30" (weird thing to say) even though there was no one waiting before us. Ok, fair enough but when a table of four immediately left, we were left standing outside ( because you can't wait in the restaurant) for 20 minutes. Why on earth does it take 20 minutes to bus a table and seat a party of four. The waiter was put out and indignant because we dared come in and ask him if we could please sit down and clear the table. What the hell ? No bus staff? One waiter for 15 tables and he has to clear and set them up?? Nonsense! Maybe that's why this guy was so rude and insensitive, ( my wife was feeling ill and just wanted to sit down) ...not welcoming in the slightest. No effort to be kind and simply say " sorry, we are short on staff" or " we'll have this table ready for you in a few minutes".

Dear server,

When you are asked if there is flour in the sauce and you use a rue the answer is yes. You can and did make someone very ill on their vacation by your ignorance/inattentiveness.

we loved all the food, and the fact you can bring in your own bottle of wine(first) at no charge was perfect. Have to check out this place

The food was good, and our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We brought our 9 month old daughter along with us and they had no problems accommodating us.
