“Less than excited this visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

We've eaten at this location before and had great food and service. This trip, the service was average at best and food was just okay. I was expecting more from this chain.

“The food has really gone downhill.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

When they first opened, you could tell that they used fresh ingredients. Unfortunately that has changed and now the food is just plain bland.

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2010

Food: was served cold, waited 1.5hr for main course for 7 people to be served, ordered a cheese and pineapple pizza and got Pepperoni, one dish couldn't be served because they didn't have all the Ingredients, ordered the seafood Linguini and four out of 12 mussels where closed. There was no cutlery at the table, we had to ask for it.
Service: the waiter was a young inexperienced person who did try his best. We asked for a booster seat for my 3yrs old twice and never recieved it. I asked for a takeout dish three times and never got it. But he did check on the ingredients when asked (we have an egg allergy). When the bills came they didn't have the right items on them. The manager was called and it did get sorted out 20 mins later. We did recieve a $8.00 credit for the seafood meal. But we had to ask for it when we paid.
Atmosphere: way to loud of music but the restaurant was clean.
We felt like we where inconvenience when we walked in the door because we didn’t have a reservation and they had to move the tables to seat all seven of us.
I will never come back!
