Everything was great from the time we came in.
Everything was delicious. The best part was the happy hour items. Then to top it off the pumpkin mocci cake was literally the icing on the whole dinner. Thank you. Till we meet again ;)

The restaurant was very busy and our table was not ready, but our host Owen suggested the high top table upstairs and it was great!
