I informed the waiter I had food allergies and asked if the cheese and wheat couscous could be omitted if I ordered the salmon fillet, was told 'no problem'. Dinner arrived covered in cheese and was returned to the kitchen, while the rest of our party of six ate. What came back the second time was a very small, over cooked salmon, mushy spinach, no grape tomatoes or quinoa and about a half cup of.....wheat couscous. The waiter was very apologetic, took the dish away and off the bill. I declined a third try and will NEVER go back again. It is not worth the potential asthma attack. If you have food allergies, AVOID THIS RESTAURANT!!!

It's a cool spot for dinner and maybe breakfast if you are not germaphobic, tables chairs and spice jars are begging to get cleaned or just to get renewed , but the food are great, tasty and you don't really wait long , you can grab a stool at the bar area outside, it has nice lights at night time and tv to watch a game or tv show

Thank Yarsemin

Great food, outdoor seating. Family friendly, separate dining room from the bar area. Service was good, staff knowledgeable about the specials and the menu items.

I really enjoyed my chicken wrap. The bacon tasted really good.
I do think there was more of a choice for dinner options the last time I was there.
I also tried some of my husband's fries and meat.
