We ate here twice for dinner mostly beause of its location to our apartment and our friends lack of adventurous eating. So that kind of tells you. We did have some yummy hummus but they hire very young, inexperienced, untrained waitstaff.

We went for dinner last night. The outdoor garden space at the back of the restaurant is quiet, cozy, and delightful. The service was terrific. My husband asked for an "off menu" item and they accommodated. Bruschetta flavorful and excellent. Burger good. Fries yummy.
