We try to celebrate birthdays here every other year or so, so it had been a couple of years since we had last dined here and the memorable meal we hoped for was memorable for all the wrong reasons. The evening started out all right...More

This was quite an experience, waitress was great, very Friendly and chatty. You cook all food your self. You get to choose the flavor of broth for cooking meat in, ours was great, mojo flavor. Worth a trip but takes time 2hrs +

We knew that it was Mother's Day and it was crowded when we arrived. We waited in the bar and had excellent service. Friendly bartender. 30 minutes later, our reservation time, we were seated. It went downhill from there. First the cutlery was not clean....More
