Beautiful restaurant again recommended by the hotel and they were bang on. The food was delish. Service was amazing, people in Arlington really are the friendliest bunch. Wide variety to choose from and waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our meals.

Visited this restaurant mid day. The service was a little slow, but the manager jumped right in to fill the gap and get the food and drinks on the table. The nachos were excellent! The chips and salsa were good also.
