I was hoping to find it here. Unfortunately, this is just another decent but not great neighborhood restaurant. Service was good, atmosphere was nice, but the food is just OK, not great. Satisfying but not memorable. The search continues.

There were many large groups there, so your party of 8 shouldn't be a problem. Have no idea about air conditioning.....we were there in January.
