Lunch today was excellent Caesar salad that we split, and two bowls of their famous Swiss onion soup, which was very good. Combined with very nice server Mo, a very pleasant experience!

They always have "specials", but always, the service and food are very good. The tables are a little too close for my taste, but, the food more than makes up for it
