We were seated for our 6:30 reservation relatively quickly. The inside was about 20% occupied, but we had to go back to the hostess stand and ask for someone to bring us waters when no one had been by for 15 min. It was another 5 before our waiter arrived. He was great after that, and so I suspect there is some other organizational problem, not him. The food was slow but very good. We didn't mind the wait for food because we assumed that the kitchen is low on staff, just like everywhere right now. So, a few glitches, but the food was as good as it always is, and you just have to be extra patient when going out these days.

Our first visit. Food was overall very good. A bit too much on the oily-side for our taste. The bok choy was made with a lot of garlic. Everything was well apportioned. Sea bass was dense and flaky - delicious.

Our server did a great job. We were seated real close to the kitchen, so it was a bit loud. Would’ve preferred a table on the other side.

We will return!

So much of the food creamy and covered in Mayo - over sauced. Not bad but not great. Fair.
