A recent lunch with a friend was disappointing from a service viewpoint. We waited about an hour to be served, despite asking our waitress twice where our food was. Both the front and back doors were propped open and it was very cold inside. Again...More

My boyfriend and I have been here twice so far, and both times it was great. Nice atmosphere, good food. Only small complaint is the oil that is given with your appetizer bread doesn't taste good.

Food is delicious and the wait staff is great! The atmosphere is very warm and cozy. The only reason I don't give this place 5 stars is because the prices are a little on the high side for me.
