Hi Ahay94 I think your review might be for a different restaurant as we are not open for breakfast, just lunch and dinner, and we definetly would not charge you for a bowl of tomato sauce. Thanks Michael

Seafood was way overcooked with average presentation. Ribs dry lacking sauce,coleslaw is not just large leaves of cabbage. Quality didnt match the price tag. Very disappointing.

We dined here for a birthday celebration and weren't disappointed. The waiter was entertaining, service great and timing between courses not rushed which seems to be the case at many restaurants nowadays. Wine list was a good size and the waiters recommendation on a Riesling...More
