Waitress- excellent!!
Food offerings delicious.
Entrees came out right after appetizer- too rushed although we were not asked to “wrap” up and leave.
Ambience was great aside from the loudmouth in back of us talking very loud.

We were seated immediately which was great however our server took forever to serve us and we were indoors. Our food came out extremely late and we had to walk our check over to the hostess because our server was no where to be found. Our server checked on us once the entire evening & he was very polite when he WOULD show up. The food here is great but due to the customer service I do not think I will be showing up again.

The only complaint I have is that I requested outdoor seating and got there and they asked if I minded indoor seating because they didn’t have anything outside even though I had a reservation. Despite that it only took 15 minutes to get a seat outside, the wait staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and I hope the outdoor dining never goes away!

Food was excellent and fairly priced for the portion size. Our service was fair but could have been better. The waiter wasn’t very attentive and changed attitude based on the table he was at. Nice outdoor and indoor seating available and not too loud for being in a busy area. We would come back again!

Chalets are nothing to be desired, would be better to just have a normal table on the sidewalk. Staff was busy but professional and courteous.

The special was outrageously overpriced, took forever, and was previously fozen.

Service was extremely slow.

Pasta was good. Wait staff seemed a bit unorganized. Once we hailed them down the first time, everything was okay. A pity you have to bring your own wine. But a good place and would recommend
