The place had pretty good reviews, not sure why. The back of the restaurant smelled vaguely of sewage, the tables are way to close together... to the point that the wait staff kept bumping my chair as they passed by, the shrimp cocktail appetizer was...More

Dinner was great. The service is excellent. It is a little noisy in there and can get warm with the door continually opening.
