We went for lunch and the decor was nice. The acoustics could be better. There weren't many people there, but it was still noisy. The service was slow. The meals average. Not impressed. Maybe it will improve over time. As of now - forgetable.

I was hoping the new restaurant would be a refreshing change to the old but the service was slow and very neglectful. Staff showed less than enthusiastic attitude and the menu fell way short of my expectations. The food was good but a restaurant as...More
