The Decor is so unusual and the food is fantastic. We go here as often as possible. Love it! I had the pasta which they change every week. It is always amazing. Don't hesitate to go. All the food is so creative.

Although they do not take reservation, they said they would have an area for 10 at 6pm. We were seated well after 7 and not served food until 8:30. The menu is limited and a bit over priced. Most of the party had below average...More
