DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.. – If your definition of "fine dining" is waiting an hour for a table, being crammed into a dining room like sardines and getting attitude from the owner/manager, than you found the right place! Though I called early in the week for a reservation, I was told that they don't take reservations for 2 and that we would have NO problem being seated even though it was a Saturday night. Sitting at the bar for more than an hour, almost ready to leave in disgust, we were seated....having to navigate through an overstuffed room filled with tables and no room to walk, the noise level beyond that of a sports arena and then expected to sit at a tiny table pushed into the center of this room sitting on torn old "cafeteria style chairs" (which I refused), we sat and watched as the wait staff ran around like whirling dervishes as they clearly were over worked and constantly apologizing for wait. While this is supposed to be a stylish restaurant, there were people allowed to dine in shorts, tee shirts and flip flops, right along side the other patrons dressed up for a pleasant evening out.
Having been to this restaurant before on several occasions, it was clear that these people were now more interested in the bottom line than satisfying their clientele. When the owner/manager came FINALLY came over to check on us, I voiced my displeasure and she proceeded to give me attitude and walked away and complained to another table of patrons....whatever happened to the customer is always right and the graciousness that should be extended to all customers? Obviously, she is as classless as this restaurant has become. Save yourself the aggravation and the sore throat from yelling to be heard by your table mate and go someplace else.
