    seemed highly overpriced, waiter ignored me for like 30 minutes while I sat at the bar, since he was tending to the "usual locals" that he would also give them FREE drinks! I thought that was totally rude, unacceptable. I had dinner once, it was just OK. The salmon was just grilled, but nothing to write home about... sorry guys... Do a better job of tending to NEW clients for Happy Hour, and not the little group of cigar smoking guys at the end of the bar!!!

    Disappointed. After a nice appetizer, it was all downhill. Entrees were very slow coming out from the kitchen and my cod was cold. Sent it back, came back fine but never saw our waiter again until we had to ask for him. This place is way too loud, hard surfaces etc. With so many other good options in CG, don’t go here.
