Loved it! Visited The Hour Glass with a group of friends. My friend and I ordered three different items to share and loved them all! Fair prices, good size servings - not to big, and each of good standard. Nice wine too. Definitely be back.

I would think so. Most restaurants are open Sundays, it is usually Monday or Tuesday that places are closed. Book though as it is a holiday weekend.
