Flavourless drinks with too much ice. As we reviewed the menu and discussed the menu, he lectured us that "no one comes here for the burger." When my wife said the burger looked pretty good, he replie, "you should order something else." We were seated soon there after and told the waitress we wanted a burger. "Sorry, sold out" was her response. I ordered the overpriced fillet mignon medium rare and it came out medium well. Nice looking restaurant. Seems they put a lot of thought into the design. Someone else should be running place and they could be more inventive with the menu. As a former bartender, I recommend that rethink their cocktails. And paper straws? What a way to run a mint julip.
