    We had reservations for 6 pm. We didn’t get seated until almost 6:35. Then we sat at our table with another family of 4 and no one even came to say hello for at least 30 minutes. Finally one of our table companions went to the receptionist and was told someone would come soon. We were all ready to leave for them a server came and took our drink and eventually our meal orders. Once the chef came, he was entertaining and very good re. putting on a show while preparing our meal. The food once it was prepared was tasty but not worth the cost. It was clearly a mistake to come on Mother’s Day! Prices have also gone up quite a bit.

    Delicious food made by a competent chef. Unfortunately, he was not a showman. So, the experience was lessened.
