    Consistent quality of food, always ready for you if you make a reservation in advance, especially the night of a show at the Paramount. Happy Trey is back and always like to see Ross!

    Overall the food and the service is excellent! However, I made a reservation for 8pm because that’s what was available. The restaurant was pretty empty at that time so we were seated and our food came right away. Midway through the meal people were vacuuming and stacking chairs. I understand people want to go home and close at a reasonable hour but when I’m paying to dine somewhere I’m paying for the whole experience. I felt rushed to finish and leave.
