Food: excellent. Staff: knowledgeable. Drinks: super selection. Atmosphere: atmospheric. Service: did take a little while between servings, but that is part of the deal with the family dining style service.

I think you’d be fine if you are reasonably outgoing. The vibe is friendly and the way the food is served encourages chat. And if you don’t get on with your fellow table mates, at least the food will be wonderful. Enjoy
