Thought it was odd at 11:30am on a Sunday that the brunch menus weren’t provided or offered when seated. It may have been an oversight from our server, but did hear other tables ask for it as well. Seemed as if it wasn’t being provided unless specifically asked for.

Our waitress was very sweet but we didn’t see her much.
The burger and pork ribs were excellent(kids loved them!), but the shrimp linguini that came highly recommended tasted like a pile of salt. I think it’s hit or miss with food items on the menu but overall was a good dining experience!

It was quiet when we arrived, and we sat in outdoor dining section. Moustafa was our server and he was prompt, pleasant and attentive. The outdoor noise from the adjacent play/common area was very "energetic", but not objectionably so. The food and drinks were generally good. I would not order the BBQ ribs again--they weren't bad but there are many places in town that are better. The filet and fish tacos were excellent--I'm told. We would return again.

Birthday dinner was fine but we were rushed to finish up and get out by the hostess before the birthday dessert and the bill even arrived. Terrible hostess who did not even communicate or check with the waiter on the situation before trying to rush as out, she said due to someone else having a reservation soon. Well that’s not our problem and so did we gave reservation for that table and we were still enjoying our dinner. We had a reservation too and the bill and our dessert hadn’t been served yet, so sure, we will leave but you won’t get paid.

Good evening Helena, Thank you for taking a moment to send feedback on your evening. Happy Birthday to you as well. I apologize you felt like you were rushed and that was not the intention. Our system books reservations on a two hour turn time and when we have tables staying upwards of three hours it becomes difficult for us to meet the expectations of everybody. We do our best to manage each table so that we do, in fact, take the best care of all of our guests and are respectful of their time. I apologize again that you felt differently. If you have any questions or further concerns, I would be happy to assist. We look forward to seeing you again and have a great weekend. Thanks, Kris.
