I found this place overpriced for quality of food and service. It is not accessible friendly. Restrooms are a lot of stairs to get to. I Would not recommend for families. It was OK for date night. I would probably not go back.

We do have a wheelchair ramp and a few tables we assign that are wheelchair accessible. However, our washrooms are several flights of stairs down into the office building which we are a part of.
