Went in for dinner with friends. Quickly after ordering wine, the waitress poured it out of a box at our table. I knew something was awry. After 45 min of waiting it came time to order and the waitress came back clearly on drugs. Limited...More

Totally Disappointed with overall service, quality of food, atmosphere, value of food and a couple of the dishes we ordered. Being in Newton, we all assumed it would be an excellent choice. Too bad for everyone.

They should be closed down. I feel cheated. The credit machine, coffee machine and hot chocolate machine were broken. One of the two bathrooms out of order. They were out of steak, lamb chops and about 10 other main courses. They were out of appetizers...More

Bad food. Bad serves and bad atmosphere. The food made me feel sick and when we got there they ran out of raviolis. We ordered miso soup and they gave us vegetable soup. Overall bad experience. Don't be fooled by the groupon!!
