    Food is delicious but beware snarky eye-rolling waitresses with seriously rude attitudes. Also double check your bill they charge you for things you ordered but didn't receive.

    I recently booked a party for my wife's birthday. The food was amazing, and the staff were very accommodating of our large group. I can't recommend this place enough!
