Visited this restaurant for the first time and have no desire to return. I will be crossing it off my list of great restaurants. The chef forgot to make one of our 3 orders so, it took an incredibly long time to get our meals....More

Don't be put off by the fact that this restaurant is in a strip mall with no external ambiance. The service, drinks and food inside are awesome. Great place for dinner!

Had dinner with friends to celebrate Christmas. The food was excellent and service was very good. The portions are above average. It can get noisy when busy. I enjoyed seared tuna and my friends enjoyed seafood pasta and gnocchi.

Went in the evening and sat at the bar. Good attention and great description of specials. Flatbread pizza and burger were great. Gets very busy and can be hard to find a space at night, but worth the effort.
