It is an interesting experience, but it is soiled by the extremely poor service, the constant bumping and hitting by the wait staff, the poor food, the extremely long overall time that you are in there, and the overall noise. There must be nothing else...More

Dear Theresa, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry if you had the feeling that it was too noisy. Sometimes, people speak louder because they can't see anything and feel the space, so they don't realize that the people they are with are closed...More

You never know how much you depend on your sight for food until you lose access to that sensory information. And then you learn how good a guesser you are! It is a little disorienting at first, but a lot of fun, and very delicious.

If you are planning for a Friday or Saturday dinner plan tables at two weeks. If that's during week days a few days before should be fine.
