The food was excellent, which was the reason for the five starts. Service was good. My only issue with it was they were asking people for dessert orders as two of our guests were still eating. I could see them doing this on a super busy night or if we had Ben there an inordinate amount of time, but we weren’t there any longer than normal and it was a Tuesday night with plenty of tables available. That rubbed us the wrong way and thought that was a little rude, especially for a not so busy night.
