Rated 2 out of 5 by *Larger inside than appears outside.*Buffet was a little small & server dishes your food.*We were first time so server gave us free samples of dessert and Plantains.*Cool wall decor, the paintings and attachments came out like 3D.*Nice staff.*Walls were pretty dirty and needs a new paint job.*Ceiling vents were dirty and water damage can be seen too.*Place is hard to find without a GPS.*There is small stage where they said they have singers on occasions.*Refill on drinks unlimited.*Lot's of military personnel came in for lunch.*Recommend ordering the steak sandwich or the grilled chicken salad or the Cubano sandwich.*Bread pudding sample was real good and the flan dessert sample was too.*The place was pretty cold inside.* They give military discounts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Not too great overall. Long wait for marginal food. Lackadaisical service. Nov 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The food was great! The hostess was nice, but the other employees never even smiled the whole time we were there. We got there 2 minutes before they opened. The door was locked. We waited for about 3 minutes with other customers. They didn't seat us or even take our drink order for about 10 minutes. We also overheard two employees complaining that customers were in the restaurant. I guess they weren't ready for us. Nov 6, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by The waitress was absolutely great. Since we told her it was our first time at the restaurant, she made sure to tell us in detail about any dish we asked about. She even gave me a sample of a desert to make sure I liked it! Sep 5, 2014
