Stumbled into this place while looking for dinner. Seemed like good choice as we scanned tables of other diners. But once seated, the staff started hard sell of ‘specials’, overpriced wine, etc. and everything was mediocre, at best. Nice outdoor setting and people watching, but do that from pub and avoid this place!

Horrible service. Stay away!!!!!
Small dishes.
Very expensive.
Seems like the more interested to get people to sit rather than serve them.

This restaurant over promises and then WAY under delivers. In our case, we were lured in by the excellent salesmanship of the guy in front - promising all kinds of non-existing specials and values because it was just after Shabbat. When we sat down, the staff wasn’t prepared to serve us, the waitress served our soup AFTER the meal (after asking us and being told that we wanted it after the main course), and not serving me the beet soup I ordered. Very average food. Very disappointing meal. There are so many other better options in the city, save yourself aggravation and disappointment and eat elsewhere.

Where to begin.... from the misinformation given to us to lure us in (short wait time, table inside) to EVERY couple walking out arguing with the waiters over their charges. It’s a trap and they are shameless. I really don’t know how they can sleep at night.
