I've only been here once and it was for a luncheon for work. It's not what I expected at all. Extremely over priced and just a weird set up. The food was okay, but nothing to rav about. I don't plan on going back.More

One in our party has to dine gluten free and they had no problem finding selections from the menu. Also, the wait staff was very helpful in recommendations. Hope this helps.
