It's alright. I can't help but think I'm eating inside the DRINK nightclub with it's cavernous hall. Food was good, but not really that great of a value

Great choice in food. Good atmosphere, good for average size groups. Not really romantic, unless you get a table off the main floor. Our waiter was George Lopez...yeah, name tag said George L and he look like the comedian. Limited vegi choices.
