We stopped by for drinks and a snack at the bar. They do their own bloody mary mix. It's amazing! Hummus was good too.

Unfortunately we can only comment on the restaurant's lack of ability to honestly accept or reject the request to seat a large group. We were told it would not be a problem but then received 3 phone calls in 3 days trying to get us...More
