We had dinner with our college son on a Sunday. The staff were friendly and attentive. Many people helped us and brought us ordered items. The food was tasty and delicious. A great choice but reservations are suggested.

Found was a wonderful dining experience. Such an eclectic, relaxed environment! Chairs of all types, wall hangings, plants, lights - you feel like you are transported somewhere else. The food was very good as well. The star if you can believe it was the bread...More

Usually 5 star for bread and circuses. But last two times, the circus fell flat...meals were late and did not arrive together. Then one had to be returned because it did not follow cooking preferences.... this happened on two different occasions.
