The family had a party on 11/18 for my Nephews 60 th birthday. The Filet Mignon, calamari and chicken Parm were very good. Appetizers were very good also.I will go back because the food is that good. Prices were fair.

Ate a super quick bite here with my brother and sister, we shared a few sushi rolls before going to the Amazing Escape Room nearby. Food was delicious and service was FAST- exactly what we needed! I would definitely visit again.
