The restaurant closed up. I heard the catering is still open. I wouldn't recommend it. You don't get what you pay for. They add on fees after you reserve and think prices are worked out.

The food was excellent. I will be going back again. All that and you get United Airlines miles too. I am a vegetarian and they had very good choices.

Eaten here a few times and had nice food. Very small dining room but good service and nice meals. Worth a try.

Very unique restaurant. Menu is sometime a bit limited, but food and service are always very good. If you want something just a little out of the ordinary, this is a good choice.

I can't think of a worse dining experience in recent years, and it wasn't because of the food. The food was pretty tasty. My husband and I came in near the end of their lunch time - with perhaps 40 minutes to go. I had...More
