    The service was fantastic as was the food. The manager came over and checked us a few times and even brought us champagne to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The waitress was knowledgeable and very sweet. The food was delicious as usual. We love coming here and usually can't afford it, but since it was such a special occasion we splurged and I'm glad we did. An enjoyable night was had by all. Thanks so much for the wonderful night.

    Great food but not great atmosphere. Someone started vacuuming next to us while we were still eating so it was kinda disruptive.

    Assuming new waiter. Appetizer ordered incorrectly, came out wrong. Waiter Forgot drinks. New appetizer pork pot stickers came out rushed, was slightly cold. Meals came out with cold meat and dirty silverware, new food came out 20 minutes later with less portions. Overall bland food, and overpriced.

    Everything was great from their Restaurant Week menu, and it was fun to celebrate this wonderful occasion for our community with a 4-course meal!

    Staff was exceptional. Hostess was lovely and helpful. Haley was delightful and hard-working. However the food was over cooked and not hot when it arrived. Had the feeling the kitchen was understaffed.
