    We were seated at a table in the way back of the restaurant. When asked to be moved we were told we would have to go on the waiting list. Food was delicious as always but service was poor. Long wait times and lack of attention. Disappointing even with great HH prices.

    Nice location. Not crowded for a weekend. Food was top notch and timely. Hostess was a little aloof, and refused to give me her name so I could be sure of my reservation. The first question the hostess asks when she can not find your reservation is who did you speak to.

    If you're looking for a sweet, alcoholic treat, the strawberries are a must! And the seasonal dragon fruit drink was delicious, too!
