Great trip! We we're greeted and seated fast! Drinks were ushered out as we got through the long and delicious looking menu. Service was perfect! Food was fantastic! And it's just a walk away from the convention center.

I visited this restaurant with a small group of co-workers. Our food was as we expected but the prices were extremely high for this type of restaurant and cuisine. The service was mediocre and the wait time for our food was longer than it should...More
