It was a great atmosphere. We sat upstairs. Waitress wasnt the most attentive. We ordered a package meal and they ran out of salmon and gave us calamari instead. Did not like it and the waitress didnt even ask about it so it sat untouched. The bathroom was out of toilet paper. This was suppose to be a special birthday for my wife and I put the notes in open table but no one even wished her a happy birthday. Very disappointing. Especially after spending $100 on just the two of us.

Had a piece of hair in our meat when we were grilling. Gross. And the workers seemed to be laughing it off afterwards. Also a homeless man walked in and distracted people who were eating making us feel uneasy. Brutal.

it was better when it first opened, somehow I feel the place has lost its magic. Maybe it’s time for a remodeling Mx

We sat at 2F so the noise level was a bit high. I've had dinner at 3F on another occasion and it was so much better. the Meat lover was ok, but i absolutely love all-you-can-eat, although it could be a bit more pricey. Service is very good. Would recommend for group gatherings but perhaps not for a date night if sitting at 2F as it might be difficult to hear each other.

Having a birthday dinner. We were seated upstairs. Food took to long to come. Wait staff was not very skilled and table was not cleaned

Not usual for this place. Normally all is well and it’s one of my favorite places. Unfortunately this was not an enjoyable birthday .

Great food great Server..less one star because it took a while to receive our rice. We were done with all the meat once the rice came. The server knocked out of the bill which was nice of him. The food is awesome and we will be back 1/1!

The food is ok but I don’t think it’s worth waiting for that long. And also maybe they’re too busy so get prepared for that they may forget your food and can’t wait to take your plates away.
