The staff serving me was very friendly and when I asked for her advice, she spontaneously gave me suggestions. I'd taken her suggestion to try the grill portobello which is delicious. The fresh squeeze orange juice is also very nice.

It's the first time we've ever eaten here, but it won't be the last. The hostess handled our large party well and even though they were on a wait, the server was knowledgeable, patient and kind to my rambunctious 6 year old. The food was...More
