    You don't have to break the bank here but I definitely did due to a friend's birthday. However, that aside very friendly staff and the waiter helped me out with all my questions regarding their 🍹's.

    Our server was great... Very knowledgeable. Food was mediocre at best.... salty. If you like your rice undercooked & being ignored by the bartender after spending over $150, this is the place for you.

    New menu is very disappointing. Atmosphere was nice, but food is VERY lackluster. Certainly not "gourmet" as advertised.
