Average service with pretentious waiters, average food with high prices. Check your bill. Too big for atmosphere to enhance the dining experience

The “Jack Daniels” steak is a must have along with some “Malvapoeding” at the end! Nice and friendly service.

The food and service was top. The ambience leaves one unamused. They serve great wine in cheap thick 1970’s wine glasses.
