The girl told us about 15 minutes to wait. Just the smell alone I didn't want to leave the front of the restaurant. The food was great, the waiter was funny & I loved the atmosphere. Looking forward to going back again!

The kitchen can really crank out the good food at this diner/bistro. We had to wait @ 15 minutes for seating for the four of us, but the waitress was right on-top of the ordering and service side. We got our drinks and our food...More

There isn't a line out the door on the weekends for no reason. It's no secret this is a awesome place to eat. The wait can be 20-45 minutes to get in but the line does move quickly and it's worth it.
