    The food and service were excellent! The customer service team is also superb (I had to rearrange my reservation a few times and they were of great help!).

    I’ve always enjoyed the local in the past but it really fell flat this time. I ordered the trout special and it was lukewarm and flavorless. My boyfriend had the steak frites, which was ok but nothing to write home about. I’m not a big complainer when I dine out but the trout was inedible, so I let our server know and she did take it off the bill. The only bright spots were the shrimp app and the Tempranillo which I would highly recommend.
