The food was delicious, fresh, and unique. Really liked the ambience, the rock wall was cool. Service was quick and attentive. Bread and lava salt sprinkled butter was a very nice touch and delicious. We've decided we need to buy some of that salt.More

Loved the variety of the buffet, even though it's a vegetarian one, the choices you have are plenty to satisfy you (delicious fresh soup). I would say this is a healthy option for a lunch stop! The staff is great! Thank you!
