Only one waiter. So waiting time is long. The food was so-so. Went there because of reviews. Disappointed.

Stepped into try something different than brew pub fare and were pleasantly surprised. Small setting, maybe about 10 tables, and immediately greeted warmly by the owner. Very welcoming and early proud of his efforts (and deservedly so). The falafel was great, the lentil soup outstanding,...More
