Service was very good, food served exactly as ordered. Server was new (I hope) and was over the top asking every minute how everything was. It makes me appreciate professional servers who understand the art and balance of a great evening.

Only writing this review because our server, Marco, was amazing. The food was excellent and the steak was cooked to pure perfection. Highly recommend and, if you can, get Marco as your server.
