    The service was horrible!!! Went on a weekday for lunch. Our food took an hour to come out even though the place was not packed. When we finally got our food it was cold. Not going back anytime soon!

    One of the best restaurants I have ever been at. Original french onion soup tastes like near Eiffel tower and Chicken Parmigiano is awesome! Be careful, it is really big portion ;) and sit outside!

    Happy hour: It's short but sweeet, with $6 cocktails and mojitos + $4 sangria. We like a little Arnold Palmer with a sweet tea vodka. (M-F, 5-7pm)

    Awful! Called ahead to check the hours... The automated machine said they are open until 1p (during the weekdays)... Arrived there at 11:56pm and was told they close at 12am. False advertisement!!!!

    The food is way below average, especially for the price. You're better off going to one of the other restaurants. Service is not good either probably because gratuity is already included in the check
