We had pork osso bucco and chicken, which were very good and our grandson had three soft tacos. The food was very good and the service was excellent, so it was an enjoyable evening.

It was crowded and service slow, very cold outside and in, but in terms of food it was good and staff was nice. Apologetic about the slow service.
