This Place has great food, and drinks nice atmosphere and Comedy Night with Arnez J, was too funny. Came in town for a family reunion, and Comedy night was included in the visit, This little area is very nice and have a little shopping area.

Good music in a horrible crowded place. Be ready to be pushed and shoved by the rude staff trying to accommodate as many people as possible at your own table. Greed is an ugly thing.

Just saw Keiko Matsui there and really enjoyed ourselves...very quaint setting, with a bar and restaurant all in the same building. We had dinner there, and it was excellent. Hope to return very soon.

Since it is cabaret style seating I would imagine they can remove a chair or two to make room for a wheelchair. If you dine in the restaurant before the show you get reserved seating. I would call them directly and ask.
