awful, the worst meal I've ever eaten in a restaurant . We went with friends for a birthday eat dinner. If I had to eat food like this, I would pray that I would not see another birthday.

The shrimp bisque is to die for. Our entrees were all good. The service was good, our waiter was friendly. It took a while to get our food even though the restaurant was nearly empty and was kind of expensive but we expected that.
