I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. The waiters were very attentive but the food, atmosphere and prices did not satisfy. There are so many better options in the area.

We had dinner here a few nights ago. The food was tasty enough, but not as good as I'd hoped. We found it a bit funny that they had football on television as it was more of an upmarket restaurant. The waiter was trying hard...More
