I was in the city for a meeting, and my daughter wanted me to try this restaurant. She loves this place, and I wasn’t disappointed. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent.

Herbert and Michelle are delightful, welcoming and always look after you. The food is scrumptious and the environment is tremendous. Always a great crowd. Good for date night or a night out with friends. Good value for the quality.
