I came here on a whim one week night with a friend. It was really quiet but they had lots of great specials to choose from! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great. Definitely take advantage of their happy hour specials!

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers...the lumpia and the hummus was good. Did not like my cocktail, but the bartender quickly replaced it when I asked. I prefer a quieter more reserved atmosphere.
