My husband and I used to go here often. They used to have great food, and a full service bistro. Even their take-away section was good. Over the past couple years it has slowly gone downhill. They stopped even icing their cake on the sides....More

We gals have been here before. Won’t be back. Call it a cafeteria instead of a Bistro. Self serve, order your food at the counter, take your beverage to the table. No salt or pepper on tables. Grab your own napkins. No coffee refills offered....More

The thing I hate even more than bad service is when I don't know what's going on. My friend was ahead of me in line. He ordered a coffee and panini and received a number sign. Then I ordered a tea and panini. The cashier...More
