Over worked wait-staff and a kitchen with little attention to detail. For such an amazing location and great staff, management needs to keep the reins on the kitchen, and restructure the service patterns.

Really disappointed with the food. We ordered the ostrich salad which should rather have been named green pepper salad. Hardly any leaves or greens. Then ordered pizza, shocking. Could not even finish half - and we shared! Service was non existent. Won’t be back.
