Met 2 friends for lunch. Service was good, food was fine. We sat and talked and we were not rushed. The owner/host can be surly, but he was fine this day.

I have lived in Deerfield for a very long time and I had never been here before. We had intended to go elsewhere, but the line was too long. This was worth it, a really nice surprise and literally, almost next door. The restaurant is...More
