I've never written a review like this before. But my mind was blown, and not in a good way. The food was flavorless, the entire restaurant was dingy and dark, and looked very dirty. The food was so expensive, and not worth the price at...More

The service was fantastic. Everyone was nice and attentive. The food was good but extremely over priced for what you got. I would not go back.

Horrible is not a strong enough word to describe this restaurant. It is filthy dirty. Our chef came out with a glove on, as he cut his hand the night before. There were bugs coming up from underneath the table. Needless to say, we left...More

I'm not sure if my review is valid and we ended up leaving before we were seated. The 'waiting room' was a mish-mash of tables/chairs with little air. The restaurant needs a serious upgrade in decor. Sadly, I didn't read the reviews until I got...More
