    The place is nice, but nothing too memorable. There was only one server and it took a while to get our order. The food was good, but nothing too out of the ordinary. I could at least said I tried this place.

    The food was very good, but the service was very, very slow. I thought it was because it was a holiday, but I heard it is usually like that. They need more servers. They were all very nice and polite, but they are either too busy or disorganized. They had music which was great and made the time very enjoyable. We didn't mind the length of time because we were not in a hurry and were celebrating. But for anyone going somewhere afterwards, you need to allow lots of time to dine.
