Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 85reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad service, the amount of food per dollar was laughable. Little to no alcohol in the Sangria. Did I mention the food was awful? Tasteless, bland, no meat on the wings, barely any "cheeseburger" filling in the cheeseburger rolls... Jul 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Private party upstairs so bar was extremely loud. People who went outside to smoke were standing right at the door, which was open. Smoke was coming right into the bar and our table was near the door so it was very unpleasant. Appetizer came out quickly, but main course took a very long time. Oct 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Waitress was very sweet and attentive, also had a great personality Sep 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by the bartender and server were very nice. Food was good (get the sampler for $24). The drinks are not strong and specialty drinks were $12 each so keep track so not surprised when you get your bill. Food came very fast. Aug 14, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by When we first sat down, we were greeted by a lovely waitress, named Graziella. She began by telling us that the kitchen was out of many items on the menu, most of which happened to be what we were going to order. She suggested some other items, which came out perfectly to order and were delicious. The drinks were amazing and the bartenders were awesome.So, empty kitchen aside, everything was fantastic!!!
