Restaurant was empty...should have been our first clue...appetizer was cold: we ordered queso (it was thin and runny;( it should have been hot), waitress was apologetic and took off our bill...food was average at best...would not come back..

Small selection on the menu but that was quickly forgotten when the delicious food was brought to the table. Out of a group of 20, I don't think anyone didn't enjoy their food! Great drink variety, too!

Pros: takes reservations, convenient, good decor and atmosphere, and good service by the waiter. Cons: slow (took 30 minutes for our entree) and the portions are smallish (I had the carbonara and I was still hungry). Overall it was good but hopefully they will take...More

We went for a pre-theater meal with reservation for 6:30. Seated quickly and served drinks fairly fast. After ordering appetizer, which arrived timely, we didn’t see much of our server. Had to catch her after 20 minutes to question how much longer for dinners, as...More
