This restaurant is nice and open air. The staff is friendly and nice. But the food was terrible. It had no taste and was served cold. We did not enjoy our meal at all. I do not recommend this place. A little pricey as well.More

Like Mint, it has friendly staff and a very promising menu, but the food itself is such a let down. It is expensive, which would be fine if the food was satisfying, but sadly it isn't.More
