A group of 6 had dinner and drinks on a Saturday night. Service was OK, dinner was average. The best part of the dinner was the salad. It's the type of place that you try, but frankly see nothing to bring us back

This restaurant has a very nice decor. That being said, the food is just okay. They have a bar but they don't carry a decent selection of wines. Therefore, we don't eat dinner there.

Unique breakfasts along with the classics. Delicious sandwiches and salads and a delightful tapas menu to enjoy for a nice date night or girls night out!

Over priced and low quality which I could live with for convenience but I will not tolerate unfriendly and unhelpful staff and the owner is not any better. Customer service is a dying art and has gone to Jake Starr to die.

I used to love this place but it's gone so downhill I'm done. I just went there for dinner and the menu has changed and the prices have skyrocketed. I got the Connor and my boyfriend got the Phyl. They were both absolutely bland and...More
