Really good food, but pretty slow service. Just be prepared to wait a while even with a reservation. But was still nice for a birthday dinner.

I had a reservation for 7PM, but didn’t get seated until 8PM. Then our server didn’t come for another 30min. We ordered the two he server came back with our checks before we even got our food. I would never go to this restaurant again. Our chef was Solid and the food was decent BUT service was horrible.

Service was really slow and we didn't get seated till 45 minutes after our reservation. Once seated it took another 20 minutes to be served but after the slow start everything went well and we had a good time. The slow service isn't the end of the world and we would come again

Little disappointed in the recent changes. When Covid first hit everyone was seated separately and no risk for expose. Now you’re seated together and the chef is touching everyone’s plate with the cook utensils. Due to the high risk of an exposure I won’t be back till Covid has passed.
