I so want to like this restaurant. It has cool décor and a decent menu, but every time I have gone there, which is 4 times, I don't feel at all like a priority. It appears that a lot of locals feel at home, but...More

The air and ambiance of this location was inviting and I loved the decor. We ate here on a hot weekend early evening. We were warmly greeted and immediately seated. The menu was reasonable and the prices reasonable as well. The food looked fine but...More
