The food is always good and the place is always crowded. My only recommendation is a new air conditioning system as the place can be too hot sometimes.

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
