We have been at the restaurant in the past but this time had a wonderful waitress who really explained the menu and our options - options we never knew we had in the past. It enhanced our meal and great appreciated that. I hope they train other servers to be as complete with their description of the menu.

Overall, had a great experience. The compromise lies in where we were seated. Upstairs, right opposite a storage room and the kitchen. A minor disappointment, but would ask to be reseated in the future.

Our server was Alex, amazing, on point, energetic, and all-around awesome. We also interacted with Amanda, equally as amazing. Even the gentleman who bussed our table was personable and a pleasure to deal with.

From start to finish an A+ experience!

Overall it was a good experience. Unfortunately the hostess did not put our ticket in when we got there, and we waited a good 30 minutes before anyone came over to our table to greet us. Once the mistake was rectified we had a good experience with the food and service.
