We arrived nice atmosphere, able to take own wine in and just charged corkage fee. Ostrich was lovely, well cooked, lasagne delicious.

The food was decent but had a huge letdown with the margaritas. I know it's not what they are known for but they were quite below. Got a decent one after three tries. The bartender was kind enough to come and talk to me about...More
