Had dinner here on Saturday with some friends. Food was good, prices were average and the selections were not the same old stuff on most menus. Service was a bit slow but it was really busy.

Eclectic menu (Mediterranean, Spanish, & Mexican) but a number of gluten free options. Our Server (Caroline) was quite knowledgeable about gluten issues. The rack of lamb (6 chops) were wonderful.
