Meal was very disappointing, had a few bites, did not finish. The only good part was the appetizer, penne vodka. Even the cake was a flop, make better box mixes at home. Staff was cordial but not friendly.

I have only been there once for a birthday brunch. It was not great. The food was overly salty. I couldn’t eat it. Thanks Sorry about the vegan problem.
