The food was extraordinary. Had the shrimp dinner and chicken dinner. There was so much food that you can share easily! Splurged on dessert and glad we only got one! 3 people couldn't eat it all! Worth the money, time and energy!

The noise level in this restaurant is too high for comfort, too high to hear your dinner companion, and possibly too high for auditory health. Exposure to loud noise on a regular basis leads to ringing in the ears (tinnnitus) and eventually hearing loss. In...More

The food and concept of FF restaurants is really quite good for gatherings,but they always over book reservations at all locations. Be aware you will have a long wait even with confirmed reservation.More
