The food was good but prices were higher than expected. I had one drink and a dinner entrée and it cost me almost $50.

We were one of a small handful of tables. Our server was friendly, but very lackadaisical. The Kalbi sirloin skewers were tender, but on the bland side. The Burger came out with half of a lower bun and tasted on the charred bland side. The...More
