We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here both times we visited. The coconut shrimp is delicious and the portions and price were fair. The front of house staff was incredibly snobby and rude. Both visits after asking for a table for 4, with one high chair,...More

I confess, I didn't notice, but my sister in law had a pasta style dish made with zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Does that help?

I don't know if they take reservations. We did not mind the wait. The place is very informal and the maitais at the bar made us forget we were waiting for a table.
