Went here for a quick dinner with a few friends. Knowing we were with a convention and over running many restaurants they did an amazing job. Our food was awesome.

Prices were good but I guess you get what you pay for. The Mediterranean salad was boring and missing ingredients specified on the menu ( no tomatoes!). And service was terrible! On a Monday night things took a long time - not sure if they...More
