    This is a really fun place to have lunch, brunch, dinner, or cocktails with friends, family, or large groups for special occasions! The food is good, the drinks are even better, and the service is outstanding!! During our High Schoolers' Prom, parents had a nearby "Parent Prom" here. David was so helpful to create the perfect set up for our event and provided excellent service!! A very successful parent social! The music is a little loud, especially when there is a DJ, but it creates an exciting atmosphere and makes you want to dance!! We actually came back with our kids who enjoyed the weekend brunch!

    When making our reservation I added birthday celebration and didn’t get my request for my friend. So sad! Unsatisfied!

    Went for Mother’s Day and was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t crowded at 2pm! Service was great and we got our food right away, with the exception of one plate but we were still notified on the delay. I just wish my favorite dish (octopus) was offered in bigger portions. That’s my complaint. Too loud for me but noise in general bothers me. Everyone else in my party loves the level of noise.

    We didn’t get forks, plates or napkins for 30 mins after receiving our food. We let two people know and no one came to give us plates. Our drink took 35 mins to come to our table. We were celebrating a birthday and were told by our server we would receive a free birthday dessert and we didn’t even get that.

    It was terrible😭. After we were seated I asked 3 waiters to alert someone that we were waiting and they each acknowledged and said ok. After about 20 minutes of no assistance we decided to leave. We understand it was Cinco De Mayo and all but that is irrelevant.. there were many waitresses or personnel not attentive to us. That was terrible and unworthy of returning or recommending your place of business. Then with your app (open table) to support reservations we received a charge that was not what we ordered, as we never were given an opportunity to order. It was going go charge us for items. The entire experience was terrible.
