Food should be served hotter. Swordfish tasted fishy and texture was grainy. Parking lot curb is hard to navigate. I feel There are better choices in this price range.

The place, in my opinion, is casual. Like the other comment, I've seen a wide variety of attire. It nice, the food is great, the service is friendly so I'd say dress like you're going to a nice place.
