The food was tasteless & very expensive for what we had, the food was warm not hot due to a large extent to the waiting staff serving other people & the plates left on the counter to get cold. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Overall the food was above average and the service was very good especially considering how busy the place was. A few free things for the kids like free drinks. We would go back.
