Visited this restaurant twice. The first time it was on a Saturday (Shabbat- all other shops were closed) and the second time was the day before a public holiday (Simchat Torah). I regret going there twice. The service staff are all young and very obnoxious- you can tell that they see you waving, but will turn away and ignore you... More

The result is terrible noise (also caused by very poor acoustics) and mediocore service. We had a Focaccia which was freshly baked (not baked enough). And had the hambuger focaccia (served... More

Me and my husband are big fans of this restaurant. We usually go there and have the steak, which is absolutely incredible. However, couple of days ago, I went out for dinner there with my friends. I ordered the hamburger. Half way through my meal, I feel something sharp poking my tongue, and it turned out to be a piece... More

I was surprised because I usually only order steak at a restaurant that specializes in beef. Our waitress was fun and could take the kidding around from our slightly crazy... More
