We had a great experience. The service was excellent, the food came out fairly quickly and the place was packed! With that being said, it was extremely warm with the doors wide open on an 85 degree day and it was quite loud but overall we really enjoyed our visit and plan to return in the future

We go for the entertainment, not the food. The food is just okay, and pricey. Drinks are expensive.

Great service at the bar. Nice size food portions. Unique menu with many options. The flavors were wonderful. Nice wine, beer, cocktail selection. With just two of us, we had the steak tartare appetizer, lobster ravioli and lamb chops. Plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. Highly recommend!
