A bit of a hectic spot. So if you are looking for a quite romantic meal, this is not it. But if you want quick service and a crazy atmosphere - this is the place. Food was also good.

Don't know for sure, but I highly doubt it. It is a very small place and walking between tables seems & feels crowded. Of course, you should call them to get a definitive answer.
