Had dinner here pre-show. Fish and chips and steak sandwich. So, nothing too flash and the meals were that - nothing too flash - passable. Slow service unfortunately also. $20 for each meal seemed a tad high also, but I guess expected due to the...More

Wonderful little (well, not really so little) coffee shop & bar. Excellent service and attention, even from the new staff member. Ok, so he didn't know everything about the menu yet, but he sure tried and was very pleasant. A more experienced waiter came to...More
