Rude staff, very unfriendly. Very slow service. Do not advise. We called ahead, to ask, if dogs are allowed, were given a confirmation. Showed up, and even though our 6 friends were already there, they rudely refused us entry.

Nice ambiance, but not a god experience. The Baltic Trio appetizer was wonderful, as was the Latvian sparkling wine we ordered to accompany it. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The duck breast was overcoked, the wild boar very bland, and bth were plated...More
