Really liked the bar area. We sat in dinning room and all 4 meals were decent. Wait staff was nice but over worked. They had to many tables to work. Which means they need help. Other than that. Would recommend.

This restaurant is a huge disappointment. The atmosphere is minimal. I will credit the waitstaff as being very good, and the bread is good. That's where it ends. The $14.00 poached pear salad was lacking most of the stated ingredients. It was basically a very...More
