Heard some great things about this restaurant and they were open on Thanksgiving, so my wife and I gave it a try. The contemporary surroundings were a little open for us and loud. Not exactly what you want for your Thanksgiving meal, but for everyday...More

Food was good, but it took over an hour to get our entrees and the service was poor. My drink was wrong and so was our appetizer.
