This place is very popular considering the fact that on a weekday at 9 pm, we couldn't get a table for 2. But they accommodated us at the bar until a table became available. However they do tend to accommodate large groups of different sizes...More

No reservation for party of 4. Refused a copy of the menu at 11.00. Loud music not able to be changed or turned down because it's "for the staff". Very overpriced for what it is. Awful atmosphere.

Went with some friends on a recent evening, was seated fairly quickly despite it being busy. However, the service flip flopped from one pleasant waitress to a downright hostile member of staff who threw down cutlery and failed to return with drinks orders. The food...More
