Rated 1 out of 5 by When we entered the restaurant there was no host or hostess. We had to wait for 10 minutes just to be greeted. After that, although there were many tables available the hostess made us go to the bar (& we were with kids) and wait. But we got a table quickly (there were a few vacant not sure why we were sent to the bar). The server, George was pleasant ut very busy. Looked like he was the only person around (on a Saturday night) serving close to 20 tables. We were given water and that was the only time we got it in the 2 hours we were there. We literally left the restaurant thirsty. Regarding our order, I ordered wine, which never came. My wife ordered salad specifically requesting no cheese but it came with cheese. It took us ten minutes to get hold of the server to report it and some more time for him to get a new salad. We asked for more bread for the table which never came. Water..never made it through. It was a horrifying experience and I would never go here again and would never recommend anyone. On the positives, the food was good, the Tiramisu was very good. If you are OK to accept horrible service, but good food, feel free to try it out. BTW, I did talk to the manager, mentioned these points and told him that this review will be posted. Apr 6, 2014
