My wife and I ate there last night. There was nothing wrong with the food or service. At the same time there was no "wow" factor either. They just opened this location a little while ago and I think it will get better with time....More

Terrible service We had to send the food back for it to be cooked properly. Then as you walk through the kitchen to use the pubic restroom you see the kitchen and when the bread is laying on the dirty floor! Really!!!!

Stopped in after a trip down the Farmer's market on a Tuesday Night. Great food and service. It was not crowded at first but nearly filled by 8pm. Good food, and service. Decent Prices.
