Love the ambiance and the lively atmosphere even though it is quite loud. We were having a lovely anniversary date until the waiter basically kicked us out saying our table had another reservation in 10 minutes. I’m 57 yrs old, and traveled the world, and that has NEVER happened to us in my life. Food and drinks were delicious.
