Awesome service, great food, felt just like family dinner. Didn't taste anything I did not like. I'm sure it will be a line but it is well worth the wait.

Our group of 8 adult and and 2 children waited about and hour to be seated at this famed Germantown restaurant. Anticipation did not match reality. The food was good (not great) but the service was non-existent. Servers brought out the food without interactive games with anyone at our table THEN disappeared. We ran out of several items and I...
