    Hostesses and later the managers were unaware of our anniversary requests and made no effort to alleviate the situation. Food average but our waitress Jacqueline was excellent! Not the place it used to be!

    The experience was nice. The vibe was nice. The appetizers were basic. My husband was not impressed with the Calamari or Thai Chili Shrimp. There was no “I must have this again” factor with either. The entrees were good. I had the filet and my husband had the roasted chicken. The best part was the Mac and cheese.

    50the birthday. Spent 1100.00 and the one thing that I could get past the broken wine underneath the table that the waiter broke accidentally. I kept stepping in it. Other then that it was a great birthday. The waiter did good just needs to pay attention to details

    The place is in need of redecorating. I haven’t been in the upstairs dining room for years 10 -15 since I usually visit in the summer over lunch. Nothing has changed and the booths and decorations are looking worn. The food was okay, however nothing with noting since some of the brunch items have increased by 50% over the past year. It has been one of my favorites in the past, but now I don’t feel comfortable recommending to to tourist or young people.
