The food was all right, and the price wasn't bad. The wait staff was friendly. The service was a little bit slow, but the reason to go is the atmosphere! We went on a Sunday evening, and we had about a 30-minute wait to eat...More

I sat at the bar so the service was very good but the place wasn't dead and it seems like they were getting to the table quickly. The food was good but the atmosphere is the reason to visit.

The restaurant was a novelty and very interesting. The staff were friendly but the service was very slow despite the restaurant being almost empty. The food was below average. Edible but not good. I would go somewhere else unless you have a child who is...More
