    It was our first time dining in the restaurant. Our server was amazing , he was very attentive and friendly. We ordered an appetizer, entrees and dessert. The food was delicious and now one of our favorite places to go. I think the restaurant could use a deep cleaning. The blinds were very dusty, as well as the greenery and lights above our head. The bathroom could use a bit of TLC as well.
