Visited here in the mood for steak. Ordered the most expensive steak meal on the menu and was very disappointed. The bacon wrapped filet tasted like something you’d get off a meat salesman’s truck and was thrown in the freezer and cooked on a whim....More

Went for lunch on a recent Sunday. It's a beautiful space and we were seated right away. The salsa trio was a nice touch; tomatillo, regular salsa, and a spicy version that meant the waiter had to bring me a drink refill right away! Chips...More
