It’s a themed experience. The ambience and decor is just as great as the themed variety of food. The night set up and the space makes it homely. Felt cared for with the service on the table too.

The food is good, but on the salty side. The place is beautiful, particularly the new wing. The service was excellent. Note that their washroom is unisex. Very progressive. They can be full on the weekends, at least when they just opened many months ago.
