Held a business dinner here and the location & semi private area was good. The food was just okay - not as good as I'd hoped. And the service seemed stretched. Overall a decent place to eat but I don't feel compelled to go back.

We had reservations for a birthday lunch on a Thursday. Seated quickly, the restaurant was not crowded at all. Service was good and the food was well presented with very good taste. Overall, a very good experience other than a slight problem with the reservation.
