Neat restaurant, you can see a lot of the food being prepared. Wait staff friendly but service was so-so as our waitress was stretched too thin. The calamari dish was great, but the snapper and sirloin steak dishes were disappointing. This was presented to us...More

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
