Party of 5 @1:30 on a Thursday in early May. The food was very good. Portions are small, however. We had a patio table, which was lovely. Ultimately, the service ruined the event. It was terrible, slow, forgetful, utterly disappointing. Will never return, never recommend.

This is an adequate place for a business lunch. It was just okay. Nothing lovely or special about it, but did meat the minimum for place to go to discuss business. Wouldn't be my first choice for next time.
