    The Monday special is a great deal! I recommend the short rib, it was so tender and delicious! For dessert try the lemon brûlée.

    First time dining her since Banderas left. Has the same vibe. Food was good, the Mia Salad is a Macho Salad inspired salad. Only complaint is the service, it was pretty slow. Yes ,it was busy and a Saturday night, but it was hard to get the waiter's attention, took forever to order and to get our drinks. The food itself came out pretty quickly, it was the waiter who was inattentive to the table's needs (there were 3 of us, we each had one drink, shared an app, and had an entree).
    Bennett's American CookingResponded 3 days ago
    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the food, especially the Mia Salad. We apologize for the slow service and any inconvenience it caused. Saturday nights can indeed be busy, but your experience is important to us, and we aim to provide attentive service regardless of the crowd. We'll address this with our team to ensure improvements are made. We hope to welcome you back soon for an even better experience.

    Terribly harsh lighting. The bread in the sandwich was stale and overall poorly prepared. The restaurant’s only save was an attentive wait staff.
