Amazing food, beyond attentive servers who might even play the piano, unique venue inside and out. A must visit for locals and out of towners. Owners are over the top creative and very welcoming.

Like many places, avoid the wine and the bill is much smaller. The food, service and ambiance (outside) is something for locals to be proud of. Never had a meal here that disappointed in any way.
