Our entry was sketchy. Parking was hard to find, but we did get a spot. Very busy on Saturday night! We entered the side patio and found ourselves in the middle of the dining room (oops!). Check in is next to the bar (I think)... It was total chaos getting checked in. We were in the middle of everyone and everything and even now I'm STILL not sure where check-in was... There were bouncers passing us back and forth from casino to restaurant. We were seated in the back, very busy place. I guess another server gave away our table lol so we had to wait a bit. All was forgiven when we got served... Our waiter was awesome, adorable and attentive. He was the nicest guy! Not sure his name, he had plug stretchers in his ears. Food was fantastic. I had raw beef pho soup and my husband had grilled chicken sammich with fries. We will be back, as soon as we figure out where the restaurant entrance is. More
