The service was good and friendly. I went with a group of friends. The food was ordinary and pricey for what it is. We were all deceived. I won't come back. But amazing staff.

We dropped in to listen to the jazz ensemble. Unfortunately the sound system was not working. Sound technician was frustrated with the arrangements and so were the clients. Expectations to serve good food, sizzling drinks and smooth jazz maybe too much for management?
