Restaurant boasts that it had been open since 1902. My food felt and tasted like it had been hanging around since then. Frozen hash browns were cold and so was the red cabbage. This was after waiting 40 minutes. No apology from staff. My dish...More

My Hungarian tasting plate was just awful. Two lumps of pate style food were inedible. The tomatoes were not great . The small salami slices were ok My wife's chicken breast serve was small and dry. The band was good ! Avoid this placeMore

We went to this place a few times in 1973-74. I was so excited that it was still in business after all these years. The place has been remodeled a little but the basics are still there. Nice traditional decor, a good musical trio, great...More

It's disappointing management recently modernised the front part of the restaurant. The restaurant was a charming original from pre-World War One and the changes have compromised its character.
