My date had the seafood casserole which was a bit less flavorful than we expected. But still decent. Ended with pistachio baklava. Highly recommend this place

Service is fantastic and the food is ok (food used to be great before). We just felt bad for the servers as it’s not their fault that the space wasn’t ventilated properly. Every customer was boiling, my husband experienced heat exhaustion afterwards. They have a little ac at the back of the house, which doesn’t even cool the space halfway through, let alone entirety of the area inside. Such a shame because they have real potential to do well.

We were seated about 35 mins after our rez in the upstairs loft that shouldn’t even be used for dining. My view was of the stained wall with a hole in it. Service was beyond slow and incorrect dishes were served. I understand times are trying with limited staff but this was ridiculous. Owner was completely unapologetic. We were really excited to try this restaurant but will never go back.
