Went for lunch. Place not crowded. Servers spent more time talking to one another than serving. They were pleasant and friendly when they did engage. Food was good and drinks as expected.

There is nothing I could recall exceptional about the menu. Place is cool, but nothing amazing. The terrace is good during good weather. Fun place for a quick stop. But it does not stand out. Good service nice staff.
