    I was very happy with our dining experience. Being that we had a reservation for 10 people, I wasn’t sure what to expect when we got to the restaurant. I thought there might be a short wait to be seated. Our table was set up before we arrived and we were taken right to the table after checking in. Drinks, food, and service were very good. Our meal was relaxed and everyone enjoyed catching up over dinner. I will be back!

    At first they had sitting in a very bad spot. Seemed weird to sit people right by the hostess desk when spot are open. Eventually they made it right food was outstanding. But when reservations are made make sure they get a nice spot.

    Food was good but the Mediterranean Wings on the appetizer menu was extremely too salty. However outside of this incident the food is always good. This was my first time ordering the wings so not sure if this was a one off??

    Wings were absolutely delicious. The burgers were just ok, nothing spectacular. It was extremely loud me and my boyfriend had to yell to speak to eachother. Our waitress only came to being our drinks and food. She did not come back to check on us at all.

    We had a wonderful brunch. The omelette special and French toast were outstanding. We had excellent service. The only disappointment of dining there was the parking. There was supposed to be validated parking however the card provided did not work so we had to spend $10 to park which we were not planning on. And when we pressed the Help button at the garage exit nobody answered.

    Not a big selection of food options and the goat cheese and mushroom burger was not very good. The chicken sandwich was gorgeous and tasty, but wasn't well seasoned. The fig jam, brussel sprout pizza was very flavorful and delicious

    The food and service were fine, but the restaurant was so loud that we couldn’t hear one another despite it being less than half full. They were also out of parking validation tickets which wasn’t a huge deal, but kind of annoying when it’s advertised right on open table.
