The food looked amazing, it smelled great, but it took more than 45 min to seat us when there were open seats and then once seated, we were never served (after about 10 min). So we got up and left. My boys went back later...More

The atmosphere and the place is a great location. However the bartenders weren't that friendly if you aren't a regular. The two bartenders were very accommodating but I guess the night crew came in and didn't have the same mindset. Prices were extremely high. We...More
