Food was amazing, highly recommend the elk and the mussels! but service was terrible. The atmosphere wasn’t welcoming at all, the people weren’t either. My friends and I walked in the room, and we felt like outcasts, and the server treated as such. My sister ordered a drink and another server didn’t bother to ask who’s it was, just slapped it on the table. But I hope her 7 dollar tip was enough:) maybe next time service can be a little better and more professionalism. All I recommend.

The dining experience was more of a bar atmosphere with prices that reflected a better restaurant. Great place to go and have a drink, but a bit noisy and somewhat crowded. Food was ok just a poor value for the price. Meet you buddies after work and enjoy, do not go and dine with a date. Staff and service was great which was a bright spot in a dull environment.
